Few people have a perfectly balanced diet. However, it is important that we each make good decisions regarding nutrition.

What you eat can directly impact many aspects of your life, including your energy level, mood or mental health. A poor diet can lead to fatigue, irritation or deterioration of mental functions.

A healthy diet not only helps you feel better mentally and physically, it also helps reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes or cardiovascular disease in the medium or long term. If you already have an illness, a good diet can help you better manage your symptoms. It also provides the energy you need to maintain an active daily life.

To start eating better, you need to first understand your body’s needs and the nutritional value of foods.
