A healthy diet isn't as confusing or restrictive as you might think. It's about choosing foods that provide your body with the calories and nutrients it needs to perform — not more or less. The best way to start is to learn the recommended daily calorie intake for your age, weight, height, activity level, and gender. In other words, skip the fads and focus on proper nutrition

Thinking of going the vegetarian route or trying a high-protein diet? Before you make a dietary switch, it’s essential to understand the health effects of eating too little or too much protein. Too much protein — more than 35 percent of your total daily caloric intake — could promote osteoporosis; too little can reduce muscle mass, lower immunity, and weaken the heart.

Eating right isn't just about looking good — it's about staying healthy and providing your body with the fuel it needs to function at its best. Incorporating certain vitamins and nutrients into your diet can help fight osteoporosis, eradicate eye disease, and lower your risk of developing hypertension as well as some cancers.
