Diet, Nutrition…. what is all the fuss about?

Diet, Nutrition…. what is all the fuss about?

what is nutrition

 

When giving presentations I often ask my audience “why do you think diet is so important?”.

Various responses are given; “to lose weight”, “prevent heart problems”,“ prevent diabetes” which are all true but they are long term effects of good nutrition. It is amazing to see how few people think about the short term effects of eating a healthy balanced diet.

We are living busy lives trying to juggle family life, work, friends, exercise to say nothing of diet. Few people have time to sit down and think about their diet and how it affects them.

balanced diet

 

Eating a balanced diet in addition to having regular meals throughout the day can:

  • Boost your energy levels
  • Prevent sugar cravings
  • Protect your digestive health
  • Stop that sluggish feeling after a heavy meal
  • Prevent low mood
  • Boost your immune system
  • Improve your concentration levels
  • Encourage self esteem

Reduce risk

In addition to the short term effects of good nutrition, in the long run a healthy diet can reduce your risk of developing:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Osteoporosis
  • Anaemia
  • Diverticulitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

In fact, many illnesses can be as a result of our genes which we can do nothing about. However, we are in control of modifiable risk factors such as our diet and physical activity and can reduce the risk of various diseases.

Invest In Your Health Now or Pay For Your Health Later….

Invest In Your Health Now or Pay For Your Health Later……..

Nobody can control the uncontrollable. Age only accumulates and the battle scars of a life in progress mount up, imposing imitations to ambulation and to motivation. We are often at the mercy of external pressures on our health, which can feel all-consuming and relentless; work, family, finance, etc.  It never ends…life is hard work!

But it is fun too! And we can make efforts to control the controllable which in turn makes everything else much more manageable.

We should start with ourselves as individuals. Health is something that we can and must cherish. We can and should take better care of ourselves. This starts with wanting to be as healthy as you can be and incorporating routine into your life.The benefits of feeling fit and healthy have positive effects on all facets of our lives. Mens sana in corpore sano  (a healthy mind in a healthy body) is not just a saying. It’s very true.
