is meant by a healthy diet?
Whether you are on a balanced diet or healthy diet shouldn’t
really be a problem. A healthy diet plan comprises natural, fresh
and rich foods taken daily. A balanced diet on the other hand consists
of all the various nutrients in adequate proportions to supply your
body with all the needed nutrients.
The problem with a balanced diet arises when you tend to eat some

still balanced. So a balanced diet may be bad for you simply because

was depressed. I’m glad I decided to tell him about my dieting.
That was the only way the doctor nailed it. I was deficient in
so many nutrients because I have not been eating enough. How can
I ever loss weight if I still eat like before?”

A healthy diet will help you health. Do not load yourself with
unhealthy food in the name of eating a balanced diet.
