Let food be thy medicine


Healthy eating prevents obesity

Obesity is a major risk factor for many conditions, like type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, heart disease etc. Eating foods loaded with sugar, fats and calories can add extra weight to your body, weakening your bones and making your organs work harder. This automatically welcomes health issues


Certain nutrients affect certain parts of the body.

Inadequate calcium, your bones can become unhealthy, brittle and weak. This makes you more susceptible to osteoporosis. Therefore, a diet that is high in calcium can help prevent osteoporosis. The same holds true with saturated fat and cardiovascular disease. Too much saturated fat in your diet can lead to high cholesterol and high blood pressure, two major risk factors for cardiovascular disease.


Healthy diets boost “good” cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein) and decrease unhealthy triglycerides

This directly impacts risk of heart disease, stroke, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and high blood pressure by helping your blood flow smoothly. The more healthy foods you eat, the better your “good” cholesterol levels will be, helping to prevent disease


Healthy eating improves the mood, which in turn boosts physical activity

If you’re happy, you’re more likely to be active. Eating the right foods can help you be happier, therefore leading to more bouts of healthy exercise. Since regular physical activity is a necessity for disease prevention, healthy eating therefore helps in the equation.

Lot of things if eaten in excess and lack of eating some can cause future health issues or aggravate your current health problems.
