THE WISE DECISION

Nutrition

New_LogoWhether you are looking to loose weight, reduce body fat, firm your body or improve your physique, nutrition is a key element. Proper nutrition is a very important part of any health and fitness program. Exercise alone does not provide you everything you need to improve your health. It’s also very important to make healthy eating choices. Eating right helps you feel great and stay healthy so you can live long and well. Eating healthy includes eating meals complete with whole grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy and lean meats.

Good nutrition requires a satisfactory diet, which is capable of supporting the individual consuming it, in a state of good health by providing the desired nutrients in required amounts. It must provide the right amount of fuel to execute normal physical activity. If the total amount of nutrients provided in the diet is insufficient, a state of under nutrition will develop.

Nutrition is one key to developing and maintaining a state of health that is optimal for you. In addition, a poor diet coupled with a sedentary lifestyle is known to be risk factors for life- threatening chronic diseases and death: Heart disease, Stroke, Hypertension, Diabetes and some forms of Cancer. Together these diseases account for two- thirds of all deaths in the United States. The major health problems in the United States are largely caused by excessive energy intake and not enough physical activity.
