The truth about nutrition

A lot of people have a very inaccurate idea of what being "healthy" is. Being healthy has nothing to do with being a certain weight or shape. That's being NOTtritious. To achieve being healthy, you don't have to necessarily eat less but you do have to look at what you are eating and make sure that it is nutritious.

What is nutrition?

Nutrition is the foods needed to live a healthy life and to assist the body in proper growth. The nutrients we need to live are carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. We also need fiber, vitamins, minerals, and water. To get proper nutrition, you have to eat foods that contain the things you need to survive. 

Aside from food, living a good life also involves being healthy in your mind and spirit as well as your body. From the beginning of our life all the way to this exact moment, nutrition has been at work in one way or another. 

To be healthy we need to maintain some level of exercise along with having proper eating habits. We also need to reduce the amounts of stress we face on a daily basis. Stress will only make things worse. Lastly we need to realize that nobody is perfect and when trying to get healthy, you should make your own realistic goals and not try to achieve others goals for you.
