Basic Guide to Nutrition

A healthy diet is a critical part of you living your most fit life.  It’s vital that you pay attention to what foods you ingest, as well as what types of drinks you are consuming. An easy way to determine what your basic nutritional needs are is to visit www.choosemyplate.gov, here you will find the USDA recommended guidelines for nutrition, as well as some basic facts about what you are putting into your body.

It’s important to remember that your body enjoys everything in moderation.  It is always trying to achieve homeostasis, or balance, and it doesn’t like it when we consume too much of something and not enough of something else.  Eating pizza everyday will certainly give you your fill of carbohydrates (and then some), but it won’t do much to increase the amount of protein you consume.

As www.choosemyplate.gov will show you, a balanced and varied diet will provide you with the foundation for a healthy lifestyle!
