What is a healthy diet?
If you want to know if you are eating a healthy diet or how you could modify your diet to make it as healthy as possible, take note.
A healthy diet contains:
- Eat without saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium.
- Feeding on chemical-free and 100% biodynamic products.
- High fiber diet
- Food rich in essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6).
Therefore, when it comes to eating, we must take into account the following criteria:
- Maintain an adequate balance so that excessive consumption of a food does not displace or substitute another important food.
- Moderation of the amounts consumed to keep us at the right weight and avoid falling into obesity, avoiding its consequences.
- Choose a varied diet that includes foods from different groups: cereals, fruits, oils, vegetables, dairy, eggs, sugars, meats, fish,
- Take into account our particular eating habits, since we not only eat out of physical necessity, but we also do it to enjoy ourselves.
Keep in mind that nutrients are distributed in food and can be obtained from many combinations between them.
A diet in addition to being healthy and nutritious, has to be designed in such a way that we want to eat it and that foods that we are used to eating are included in it.
To achieve a healthy lifestyle, you have to acquire certain habits, both eating and daily exercise.
The benefits of healthy habits are numerous, including:
- Protect the health and prevent disease. There are already enough studies that corroborate better health due to an adequate diet.

- Decreased risk of long-term cardiovascular disease, helping to lower cholesterol (LDL).
- Reduced impairment of memory and other brain functions.
- Blood pressure at normal levels.

On the other hand, the most bitter side of these habits is eating a bad diet. More and more diseases are associated or aggravated by the intake of saturated fats, fried, processed, etc. Such as diabetes, cancer, overweight and obesity, among others.
