A Simple Concept on Proper Nutrition

By: Mart Gil

Since childhood, we are always being reminded about taking vitamins, eating nutritious foods, avoiding junk and fatty foods, drinking enough glasses of water, plus performing various exercises - all of these constitute to what is considered as proper nutrition. But how can you really be healthy? How will you know that your food intake is just right for your nutritional needs?

Basically, proper nutrition is the key element when you want to reduce your body fats, firm your body, and develop your physique. Fish, poultry, shellfish and lean meat are good sources of protein. Main sources of carbohydrates, on the other hand, include yams, brown rice, sweet potatoes, and whole wheat pasta. It is always necessary to get proper balance from the different food groups if you really ant to be healthy and physically powerful.

Dieting has been one of the major preferences to attain proper nutrition. Through it, you get to pick the right combination of foods, fruits and vegetables that's best for you. It doesn't only control your food intake that can end up to being obese and overweight, it also makes you aware of the nutritional contents of the foods that you take. This awareness makes every individual more particular about their diet and food intake. Lots of advantages are associated to this fact and you'll soon realize all these things.

By taking in healthy foods moderately and avoiding fad diets, this will not only lead to weight loss but also to stable mental and physical health. However, beginning a healthy diet may not be that easy and may cause more harm than one might think. Sometimes, we acquire unexpected diseases because we think much about our diet. There are girls who have suffered anorexia due to "over-dieting". This is only one disadvantage that we must take note. I must say that it's not always good to be very meticulous about what we eat and drink.

As what I've mentioned previously, you must also follow some type of exercise program in addition to proper food intake. But you must take note that it is not necessarily the only exercise program that works or is appropriate for you and your lifestyle. See how important it is to have balance in all these aspects? It's not always proper food intake alone or exercise alone - both are dependent to each other.

Well, I must say that I am not a born writer. I didn't acquire this gift hereditarily either. However, I'm an adventure book lover and used to read everything that I come across in the Internet that sounds interesting. I think, I only developed it through constant practice and exposure to numerous writing stuff. I was chosen to compete in press conferences that showcased my need-so-well-developed writing skills. I became part of our school publication staff. I started as a news writer and photojournalist of the school paper. Soon, I was appointed editor-in-chief. It was during this time when I realized that I needed to be more efficient in writing because duty called for it. I should say that this event in my life opened me wholly to the wonderful world of writing.
