A Healthy Diet

Macy Biggs, Contributor

According to Healthline, “A balanced diet is one that gives your body the nutrients it needs to function correctly.”  A proper and healthy diet should have a balance of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, which are also called macronutrients, or macros, along with micronutrients from vegetables and fruits.  This balance of macronutrients can be fulfilled by eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.


A diet that is healthy can give you more energy throughout the day and give you nutrients to your body that are needed to prevent illnesses as well as keep you strong and nourished.  Eating well can help regulate blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. Consuming dairy products and other calcium-containing foods aids in keeping bones and teeth strong.  A balanced diet also assists the body in managing one’s weight.


There are so many important parts of your body that are affected by what you eat, so try your best to eat lean protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and take care of your body by doing so!
