In this Blog we are going to discover different aspects of Diet which you must take consideration before making a Diet chart. And we also have provided the basic meal consumption method down below which you might wanna have a look. 

Caloric intake is probably the most important aspect of diet.  The caloric intake requirement of a sportsperson differs from that of a computer operator.  Improper and unproportionate diet can impair their performance.  A high calorie food must be consumed by a person who exerts high level of activity and vice versa.  If proper diet is not eaten based on the activities performed, health and wellness will be hampered.

Balance Diet Chart 

A balanced diet chart is a representation of a healthy diet plan that fulfils the requirements of all essential nutrients required by the body to function well. It comprises of all food groups in a balanced proportion that the body needs through our diet. It is a guideline that tells us about the right food choices in a right manner for good health. A good diet chart will always aim at avoiding excess of nutrients and at the same time ensure that we are not missing out on any essential element. The idea is to ensure a moderate eating habit, where, we eat everything but in limited quantities. 

 A balanced diet completes the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) requirement of vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, carbohydrates and fat.  Diet is inter-related to quality of life and its longevity based on health

Food and Diet

Food and diet are very important for our living. Food provides us with the necessary energy to perform our daily chores, whereas, diet is what we put into our body during the meals that we eat. Not that everything we chose to eat is healthy and therefore, it even more important for us to understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy diet. 

The logic behind this is to tell us to have the correct balance of minerals and vitamins through the food we eat. Some of these elements are like vitamin B1, needed for improved metabolism and found in legumes, seeds and nuts, vitamin C for immunity, found in citrus fruits and vegetables like tomato, potato and lettuce, vitamin B12 for development of new cells found in meat, poultry, fish and dairy and vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin found in foods like dark leafy vegetables, carrots and tropical fruits.

Check labels (for Nutrients and Vitamins) before you buy 

Whatever you are eating needs serious consideration.  The supermarket is a plethora of food.  You must choose wisely.  Your stomach is not a trash can, you cannot put in any junk food that could adversely affect your health and wellness.  Include nutritious food that constitutes of vitamin, minerals, fiber, carbohydrates, protein and fat. Avoid food laced with sugar and saturated fat which could be harmful for your health and wellness.  Choose your food thoughtfully.

Essentials things to remember while following a Diet Chart

Meals portion: Instead of having three larger meals divide it into 
2 smaller and three medium size ones. Medium size- Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Small size- One between breakfast and lunch, one in evening.

Carbohydrate: Your body needs carbs as much as protein. For regular person (must be doing some exercise) your diet should contain 50% carbs like chapattis, rice, oats and potatoes. 

Protein: Protein intake should be 35%- 40% of your whole meal. 

Fats: Should have 10%- 15% of fats (a combination of both saturated and unsaturated fats)

Water: Water intake is a must in healthy diet or else. One must drink 33ml per kg of their body weight. Drink more through the day and little less at night time. 

Exercise: Must involve some physical activity for at least 30-35 mins on regular basis walking, jogging, cycling or swimming. 

⭐Never skip the first meal (breakfast) of the day. 

⭐Have a protein snack before going to bed.

⭐Get at least 7 hours of sleep in a day. Research have shown people who sleep less than 7 hours a day had a risk of gaining more weight than people who sleeps 7 hours a day. 

 Eating a healthy diet reflects healthy body and wellness.

Eating a healthy diet reflects healthy body and wellness.   The goodness of consuming the right food influences alertness of mind, strength of body, weight control and improves mood.  Healthy diet is all about discipline and habit whereas wellness is about attitude and lifestyle.  Healthy habits not just enrich your life with positivity but also contribute to longevity of life.  The collaboration of healthy eating and healthy habits are the key to wellness.  Together, health and well-being are the central components of quality of life and development which is impossible to reach without a balanced diet.
