Eat Healthy, Live Well
Simple Scientific Secrets to a Healthy Diet
Our health is influenced by many factors – lifestyle, exercise, stress levels, and many others. However, the most significant factor governing our health is what we eat; our diet controls our general health and wellness. Our diet is also something that we have, to a large extent, total control over. But what is a healthy diet? We all know that we take calories into our bodies through the food we eat and burn these calories as energy, with unused calories being stored as fat. Our body needs a balance of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat) in certain proportions as well as micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. In order to create a healthy diet, we need to understand all these factors. This informative e-book aims to provide you with a detailed understanding of what a healthy diet means for you.
