Why is a balanced diet important for your health?

Letís talk about a healthy way of life. What influences a personís health.

Nowadays people are worried about their health more than ever. They understand that a lot depends on their behaviour - their decisions to smoke, to drink, to over-eat and so on. Income, housing, environment and healthy food are also among factors that influence a personís health. Living a healthy lifestyle is a matter of choice and like most good choices it takes effort. In order to keep fit some people do aerobics or yoga; others prefer some kind of weight training in a gym. People can easily learn more about fitness through popular books and videos that are sold almost everywhere. I think everyone can benefit from being a little more active. Making small changes like using the stairs instead of the lift or walking or cycling instead of taking the bus can help people live a more active, healthier and enjoyable life.

Is home-made food better than junk food? Why?

In todayís fast moving world, people have less and less time to spend eating, let alone cooking. Itís probably for this reason that junk food has become so popular. Teenagers should know that people who prefer burgers and chips, crisps and hot dogs tend to become overweight. Besides, fast food is high in saturated fat. This type of fat is associated with a greater risk of cancer. Nevertheless, healthy eating habits do not mean giving up all your favourite food; it is all about choosing food wisely and preparing meals in a healthier way. The best advice for those who cannot live without hamburgers and chocolate bars, is to limit the amount of junk food they eat.

What questions will you ask a fitness coach?

- Have you got special programs for people who suffer from overweight?

- Do you advise to have special diets?

- How much time is it necessary so as to become fit?



What activities can you advise a person who wants to have a healthy way of life?

It goes without saying that health is the most important point in the life of any person. So you should follow some rules if you want to be healthy. First get up and go to bed at the same time; do exercises at least every week; do sports if it's possible; eat proper food (fruit, vegetables, milk, porridge, meat chicken);spend more time outdoors, don't smoke; don't drink alcohol; don't spend much time working on the computer.

Of course, physical fitness is a general state of good physical health. For anyone who really wants to be healthy, fitness has become an integral part of their lives. It is a well-known fact that even moderate physical activity can protect you from heart diseases and strokes, obesity and influenza. There are many ways of keeping fit. Firstly, you could visit health and fitness clubs. Secondly, regular exercise is necessary. People of different ages can choose or design exercises that will fit them. Some people do aerobics or yoga; others prefer weight training in a gym. Many people prefer walking or jogging which are the cheapest and most accessible sports.

Why is a balanced diet important for your health?

What is a balanced diet? It is a diet which contains all the basic nutritients needed by body and that too in the required proportion. These basic components are vitamins, carbohydrates, fats, proteins and minerals. Having a balanced is very important. No one food contains all the nutrients necessary for optimum health. A balanced diet that includes plenty of fresh leafy green vegetables, fruit, legumes, whole grains, and nuts and seeds provides a wide range of nutrients essential for growth, energy, and fighting disease.

I would say just as a car needs all components for a smooth drive similarly a balanced diet acts as a fuel for proper functioning of our body.
