You’ll have sufficient energy to get your daily duties done and enough left over to participate in sports and exercise programs when you eat right. Good nutrition means getting the right mix of vitamins, minerals, fat, protein and carbohydrates. When you’re sick, a balanced diet speeds up the recovery process. In general, you’ll feel better when you practice healthy eating habits.

Disease Prevention

Your diet consists of the food you eat every day, while good nutrition refers to the proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals you feed your body. When you eat a balanced diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein and whole grains that’s low in saturated and trans fats, you reduce your risks of getting sick and developing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Weight Control

Good nutrition involves getting sufficient nutrients in the right proportions. Eating healthy food increases the odds that you’ll maintain the proper weight for your age and body type. By following federal guidelines for recommended calorie intake that includes the right levels of each nutrient, you will avoid weight gain that lowers your self-esteem and reduces your energy levels. Obesity leads to a host of weight-related diseases as well, from Type 2 diabetes to high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol.

Growth and Development

In the early developmental stages, good nutrition plays an integral role in healthy growth. Different age groups need various diets to supply the proper nutrition, according to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. For example, preteens and adolescents need extra calcium to support healthy bone development. Kids who play sports need extra calories so that they can continue to flourish while burning off calories during play.

Aging Well

You’ll maintain an active lifestyle and increased mental acuity as you age when you develop healthy eating habits. You’ll be better able to manage age-related illnesses and bounce back more quickly after undergoing surgery or treatment for an injury or illness. Your immune system will be stronger, and you have a greater chance of increasing your life span when you practice good nutrition.

Feeling Good

Good nutrition affects your mind as much as your body. Vitamins play a role in the operation of neurotransmitters and deficiencies can lead to depression and mood disorders. Apathy, poor concentration, fatigue and insomnia all may result from poor eating habits. Your mood rests heavily on your blood sugar levels, making it important to not only eat healthy foods but also to eat them at regular intervals throughout the day.
