"The National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The theme for 2015 is "Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle," which encourages everyone to adopt eating and physical activity plans that are focused on consuming fewer calories, making informed food choices and getting daily exercise in order to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, reduce the risk of chronic disease and promote overall health".
A healthy lifestyle through good nutrition and physical activity will improve the way you feel and reduce the risk for chronic health conditions.
Let’s talk about diet. If you are into good nutrition, allow us to remind you that your diet should be:
BALANCED: be careful and plan a day so that you will have: lean proteins, healthy fats, fiber, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.
NUTRIENT DENSE: Home-cooked meals tend to be more nutrient-dense than those prepared at a restaurant, so try to be FUN and TASTY. Use the opportunity to get your whole family into the healthy movement.
MODERATE IN CALORIES: Of course, this depend on your gender, age and the kind of activities your are part of. We are not going to discuss these aspects here.
