Updated: Mar 11, 2022

"You are what you eat." We all must have heard it many time in our lives but is it really true?

Yes, 100% true. In fact, if we don't consume right food, there could be many consequences. For instance, our metabolic processes may be negatively affected, and our health may suffers. Bad food choice may lead to many complications like, Obesity, Diabetes, Heart diseases and many more.

Many problems can be prevented or completely avoided just by making right food choices, some of them are mentioned here.

Preventing Diabetes

It is possible to lower your risk of acquiring type 2 diabetes by ensuring a healthy weight and eating a low carb and high fibrous foods. By consuming low-carb food, blood sugar levels may be stabilized more steadily, reducing the requirement for insulin.

Heart Disease

Diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy may help maintaining healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels, in turn, minimizing the risk of heart disease.

Too much salt and saturated fats also cause high blood pressure and cholesterol.

Bones and Teeth

Bone loss (osteoporosis) linked with aging may be slowed if calcium-rich diet is consumed.

There are multiple sources of calcium:

● A variety of canned seafood options are available (with bones)

● Calcium-fortified foods, such as soy products, fruit juices, and cereals, such as kale and broccoli

● Dairy products

Vitamin D helps in calcium absorption. Going outdoors and eating foods high in vitamin D, such as fatty fish and fortified cereals helps maintaining right amount of Vitamin D in our body.

Weight Management

A balance diet can take our worries about weight- loss or weight gain away. Maintaining a constant weight is possible with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and a small number of unsaturated fats, meat, and dairy.

In short, a nutritious diet is not just helpful in maintaining a good weight but it may also prevent us from developing multiple health conditions like, Type 2 Diabetes, Heart problems, Obesity etc. . In addition, consuming a healthy, well-balanced diet allows us to get the nutrients we need for overall development.
