Nutrition is how food affects the health of your mind and body. What you eat will determine how well you think and feel today, tomorrow, and in the future.
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. A nutrient dense, well balanced way of eating can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight, maintain healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and avoid certain chronic diseases and debilitating conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and osteoporosis. Eating well can improve your sleep, your ability to think, remember and concentrate, and increase your energy levels. Having good nutrition also helps to keep the immune system strong increasing your ability to fight off illness, as well as recover from sickness or injury.
