I ask that question because You’ve probably heard it over and over again about the importance of eating a balanced diet for more than a million times by now yet miserably fail at being able to practice it. As a kid we’ve been taught about the “go,” “grow,” and “glow” foods; the food pyramid; and the food groups but don’t observe these in our meals once we reach adulthood.

We complain about not eating right, wanting to lose weight, or finding difficulty in searching for the perfect diet without realizing the most effective way is embedded in our memory. Knowledge truly is power if you know what to do with it. We know that each meal should consist of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber in correct proportions and amounts. But partly why we don’t follow this is because we don’t really realize the significance of each. HowToLoseYourBellyFatWithNutrition (1)

Carbohydrates function as our main energy sources. These come in the form of bread, rice, pasta, starch, etc. In order to avoid excessive weight gain, only consume what you believe is enough to get you through the day. What you don’t burn is stored in the body as back-up energy.

Proteins that we get from meat, seafood, legumes, and certain vegetables contain enzymes our body needs for muscle growth and repair. This is why body builders and weight trainers rely a lot on high-protein diets. However, if you’re daily activity doesn’t require large amounts of protein, stick to smaller proportions.

Consumption of small quantities of vitamins and minerals (especially from fruits and vegetables) are enough to keep the body healthy. Each component aims at providing good eyesight, great skin, strong bones, and so on and so forth. Fiber is another component that is often neglected by many individuals, but is by far one of the most important. It aids in the digestive process and keeps us away from any colon, rectal, or digestive diseases.

With this in mind you’ll hopefully observe healthy and balanced meals regularly.
