Why do we need to understand the nutrition facts in the food we eat?
Have you ever wonder how some inhabitants of Okinawa Island be able to live more than 100 years of disease-free life? Indeed, it is an accurate, scientifically proven fact! The answer to their longevity is because of their impeccable knowledge of the food items available around them, their nutritional facts and culinary techniques they employ while preparing dishes. People of this tiny Japanese island consume a nutrient-rich, low-calorie diet (a diet averaging not more than one calorie/g) that is composed of low-fat, low-carbohydrates, sufficient in protein (available through a small quantity of fish) but lots of green/orange/yellow (GOY) vegetables and fruits.
Of course! The right kind of nutrition is your right type of workout!
Research studies have shown that the kind of food we consume during the early years of our life sets in the metabolic pace of the body for the rest of our life. The benefit of good eating habits during the initial years of life, therefore, will be greater and longer-lasting.
Nutrition, health, and wellness are connected to each other very closely. Aberrations in our diet tend to influence significantly on our health and well-being. Gradually, but unfortunately, our eating habits have changed in a significant way from their usual, natural pattern. Each passing day, various hazardous agents enter our body through our diet.
Most of the modern food industries use several preservatives, artificial colorants, additives, and chemicals to enhance the appearance, flavor, and shelf-life of food we consume. However, some of these compounds ultimately end up accumulating inside our body, only to show their deleterious effects in the form of diseases, cancers, and genetic malformations in the newborns, etc., sooner in life rather than later.
Therefore, it makes sense if we could understand the nutritional requirements of our body. All of us are curious about "what is the well-balanced diet to stay healthy and to enjoy a productive life?" The main effort of this blog is to prepare readers aware of the nutrition values of food items available around them, antioxidant strength, storage quality, processing method, and finally, consumption.
Having equipped with the right nutrition knowledge, you are now capable of choosing the food item that has all the nutrients in the right proportion, hygienic, and free from harmful germs and chemicals.
