What are 5 facts about nutrition

When we say facts about nutrition, it does fall into a lot of categories like what is more nutritionally better, or what are the guidelines that are to be followed to get the best nutrition but in the blog we will focus on facts that we are not supposed to ignore about proper nutrition in our or our loved one’s life:

Fact 1:

Never ignore vitamin D deficiency

We all know how we get vitamin d from the sun but most of the times when we walk out we walk out with SPF creams and lotions which ends up blocking the vitamin d to our body and mostly people like to stay in shadows unless it’s crazy cold but when it’s crazy cold our skin does not get in contact with the sun, but do we know what would happen if we fall under low vitamin D deficiency category? You may feel weak, lethargic and even demotivated to move a finger because eventually your body will not have the right amount of energy to do anything, irrespective of what you eat or how much caffeine you jug deep down you will feel weakened. And to avoid all of that, you must keep you vitamin-d in check. Vitamin D is a crucial hormone in the body and many people are deficient in it. Reversing a deficiency can have powerful health benefits.

Fact 2:

The artificial trans fats, are actually very bad

Trans fats are basically formed as a side product, where when vegetable oils are hydrogenated. Yeah it’s that vegetable oil packet in your WAIWAI that you pour for taste.

The food producers regularly use hydrogenation to harden vegetable oils for use in products such as margarine and since trans fats have been linked with poor health, margarine free of trans fats is becoming increasingly common. Avoiding trans fats, is important for you if you want to live a healthy lifestyle and want to avoid diseases.

Fact 3:

Whether it is added preservatives or sugar, it is a warning for you to not consume it at all

The only reason that we find such things in our foods today is because the taste buds, want it all. Right? Would you drink a cup of coffee or tea without sugar if you have been fed with the same with sugar in it? No you would not because the taste buds just like it so much that we forget about our health and just try to keep up with our moods. But no, actually added sugars can be toxic and no we are not talking about a relationship which you can get out of.

To improve the taste of processed foods, producers often add sugar to them. This type of sugar is known as added sugar and the most common types of added sugar include table sugar (sucrose) and syrups, such as high-fructose corn syrup. So next time when you read the label of your favourite drink etc, make sure you give it a ready and avoid the one with these.

Fact 4:

Eating vegetables is actually healthy for you and your body

Your momma said it right, eating vegetables may not make you like popoye but it will help you in building a good immune system as well as keeping diseases at bay. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and an endless variety of trace nutrients that science has just begun to uncover, and the best part about them is with changing seasons they change so you are never stuck with one thing.

Last but the most important fact about nutrition

Fact 5:

A perfect diet for everyone does not exist, because if we talk about how different we are from each other we certainly talk about our culture, our foods, our preferences, and then comes the game of genetics as well. We all have different body type, we all are on different physical activity level and a single diet will not fulfil everyone’s need.
A rikshaw puller may need 4000 kcal a day where as a sedentary office going clerk may need only 2500 kcal hence we can’t all be sharing the same diet.

To figure out what you should do, a little experimentation may be needed.

Try a few different things until you find something that you enjoy and think you can stick with.
