Good Nutritious Food Choices

Posted by Rifki Hakim Thursday, 1 December 2011

Nutrition is an integral part of any person's life and good nutrition plans promote a happy and healthy person. In the following article, some ideas for a good nutrition plan have been discussed. To know more, read on...

If we take a small glance across the world wide web and several fitness books, conflicting notions, fad diets and routines may pop up leaving us wondering about what are good nutrition plans indeed made up of. To be very honest, many of us are unaware of what we are supposed to eat and whether what we eat every day is correct or not. Comically, we can divide the world into three parts, people who are hell-bent on losing weight and maintaining a sharp size zero figure. The second part consists of the ones who exercise a lot and think that they have a perfect diet, and the third ones are the people who are aware of their weight but are foodies. Well, one philosophy which I find rather good is eat, enjoy and have a laugh about it (well in moderation). The second approach is the one which is probably the best one and has stood the test of time, is the cultural approach. You may also refer to nutrition facts.

Good Nutrition Plans

If you want a good nutrition plan, then the diet of our culture or rather the culture of region in which we live is the best. A diet which is based upon our culture is the ideal one among all the nutrition and diet plans. The reason that makes a culture oriented diet the best one is simple enough, the food intake is in accordance with the geographical factors of the region such as climate, which suits the body best. Apart from that, such a diet is inexpensive and also quite easily found, not mention that it is fulfilling. Last merit, it's always delicious. Coupled with a good volume of exercise such a nutritional plan will help you to put your diet cycle on track.

Nutrients, Proportion, Quantity and Timing

The idea of following a culturally developed diet was a pointer. There are, however, 4 integral aspects of following a diet, nutrition, proportion, total quantity and finally timing. In short a healthy eating plan should have all food nutrients in proportion and the volume of this nutritious meal should have a proper timing. Here is a table that signifies all the 4 features of a good nutrition plan. The nutrients and portion of a balanced diet, also tend to change as per the seasons as the climate does significantly affect the dietary requirements of the diet.

Good Nutrition Facts

Every nutrient has some or the other significance in the diet. Broadly speaking, there are three categories of nutrition, namely the ones that are macro nutrients, energy and building substances and metabolism catalysts. The macro nutrients include fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, carbon, some components such as oxygen. These components of diet are required by all people in every day diet and should not vary. The second type of components include, energy providing and body building substances, namely, fats in small quantities, proteins and carbohydrates. A good nutrition plan for athletes lays emphasis on these substances. The third type which supports metabolism which include, vitamins and minerals. A good nutrition plan to lose weight lays emphasis on this class of nutrition.

The aforementioned table is applicable to average grown up people. Appetite stimulants for children refer to all the three aspects. Hence you may adjust your diet as per your requirement. Hence, if you need to increase weight, then you will have to increase the energy giving and body building elements in the diet. Thus, increasing fat and protein intake and maintaining the intake of metabolism supporting nutrition is also a good choice. Similarly, to lose weight you will have to reduce the intake of energy giving and body building nutrients and increase the intake of metabolism supporting nutrients and start eating healthy food. Apart from that a healthy workout routine will also enhance your weight loss. Exercise, after all is synonymous to a good nutrition plan. Good luck.
