Nutrients

You would have heard lots of people saying that healthy nutrition is

important for a healthy body but you need to know that is the actual

meaning of healthy nutrition and why it is so important. Let’s define

nutrition.

“Nutrition is the process of giving your body all the important and

necessary elements which can help it to grow in proper and balanced way.”

This is the simplest definition which tells you that you need to get proper

food and proper diet which can help your body to grow in a better way.

Healthy nutrition can make your body strong and can help it to grow and

repair itself while an unhealthy nutrition plan can make your body weaker

and can make you ill and you will not be able to fight against certain minor

diseases.

Understanding Nutrition

The purpose of nutrition is quiet simple to understand and there are three

things which can tell you its importance and purpose. First of all, you have

a body and secondly that body needs some very precise things to nourish

and to grow. Thirdly nutrition includes all those things which can help your

body to grow. Now after this understanding, you need to know that what

actual relationship of food and nutrition is. First of all, make this fact

concrete that food and nutrition are not same things and there is some

difference present between both of these.

Every food has not got nutrition and degree of nutrition in every food can

vary. It may happen that some food items may contain high percentage of

nutrition while some food items may not contain any nutrition at all. For

example an apple can provide your body lot more nutrition than a

doughnut. You can make it more interesting by understanding that when an

apple goes in your system then it breaks down in substance which your

body uses for growth and blood production but when you eat a doughnut

then, your digestion system will say “hmm, I do not need much of this stuff,

so, either throw it away or store it somewhere like in butt cheeks.”

Relationship between Food, Health And Nutrition

Food, health and nutrition all are very closely related. The food which you

eat can be either full of nutrition or it can not contain any nutrition. The

nutrition which you provide to your body affects your health directly. The

basic goal of everyone is to improve health and to improve health, you must

provide enough and adequate amount of nutrition to your body and

especially for your physical health and fitness, you must make sure that you

are providing enough nutrition to your body. There are four categories in

nutrition which your body always need in enough amounts. These four

categories are protein, fat, carbohydrate and vitamins. You need to make

sure that the food which you are eating contains necessary amount of these

elements and if you observe all the processed food then, you will know that

all of these are labeled with their nutrition values and these labels are there

for you to make an informed choice about your nutritional needs.

Guidelines for Proper And Healthy Nutritional Food

In order to provide your body with proper nutritional elements, you need to

follow these very simple food guidelines and these will help you to make

better choice of food. You should have a general idea of healthy and

unhealthy food in first place and this idea will allow you to choose healthier

food without going through lists of food items.

Every food which can be metabolized means that can be converted into

substance which is needed to grow is healthy food. You can make a

measuring foot which can tell you the health value of a particular food item.

Make it in three parts and first of all think about those foods which are

totally processed and baked as these foods have almost zero natural

elements in them like doughnuts, fast food and other similar items. These

foods have absolute nutritional value and in most of the cases they are

found to be harmful for your body. Second are those food which are cooked

with natural ingredients like meat, chicken, vegetables and similar other

items. These foods are nutritional to some extent because they contain

natural elements and you can add these food items in your regular diet.

Third are the food items which are totally natural and have no preservatives

and other similar things added like fruits, fresh juice, milk and other

similar items. These are the items which carry most nutritional value.
