“Diet is a particular pattern of eating and a balanced diet provides the correct amount of all nutrients without excess or deficiency to maintain health”, started Andrea. There are many reasons why someone is interested in their diet, for example to improve health, lose weight increase performance or simply to feel and look great.
It is important that changes to a diet are long term changes, continues Andrea, because individuals with the highest weight fluctuations have the greatest health risk, independent of obesity. Every diet should have health in mind because even if you’re thin you can be unhealthy. If you are overweight but physically fit you have a much lower risk of getting cardiovascular disease than if you are lean and unfit.
A healthy diet will help ensure your body is getting the nutrition it needs, and will help you maintain a healthy weight. People who are overweight or obese are at an increased risk for certain health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and stroke. Your weight is directly affected by your diet and physical activity, and the food you eat greatly affects your body and how blood flows through your heart and arteries. High fat and high cholesterol diets can cause a buildup of plaque in your arteries. A blockage in a heart artery can cause a heart attack just as a blockage in your brain can cause a stroke. A healthy diet will help prevent buildup in your arteries and blood vessels- It will also reduce risk of acquiring weight-related health problems.
Many studies show that a great portion of individuals in the United States have poor diets and it has been shown that with an improved diet there is an increase in disease prevention.
Most Americans (70 %) say they are concerned about their weight status, and an overwhelming majority (77 %) is trying to lose or maintain their weight. When asked what actions they are taking, most Americans say they are changing the amount of food they eat (69 %); changing the type of foods they eat (63 %); and engaging in physical activity (60 %). Furthermore, 65 % of Americans report weight loss as a top driver for improving the healthfulness of their diet; 16 % report improving their diet to maintain weight. Similarly, losing or maintaining weight is the main motivator (35 %) for Americans who are physically active, yet a large majority of people (77 %) are not meeting the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Physical Activity Guidelines.
Andrea Zecevic emphasizes:” The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore. By taking steps to eat healthy, you'll be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong. As with physical activity, making small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it's easier than you think!”
