If you wake up every morning feeling fatigued, sluggish, and weighed down, it is only because your body has had enough of your indulgences! Routine exhaustion is the body's way of drawing your attention and urging you to follow a balanced diet as consistently as possible! A balanced diet gives your body the nutrition it needs to function properly. The right types and amounts of foods and drinks supplies proper nutrition and energy for maintaining body cells, tissues, and organs, and supports normal growth and development.

If you have been trying to lose weight for some time now, a "short-cut" fad diet can certainly be tempting, but you'll soon discover that fad diets can be more dangerous to your health than beneficial to it. The majority of the weight you lose by a fad diet tends to be water weight, which can lead to rapid dehydration and also end up disrupting your natural metabolism. Once you stop the crash diet and resume your normal lifestyle, chances are that you will gain the lost weight back - with a few additional kilos.

The only way to safely lose weight and keep it off is by making long-term alterations to your lifestyle, such as opting for a healthier diet and including exercising in your daily routine. Determining how many calories you need to consume daily and keeping a track of your calorie intake throughout the day is also an effective way to lose weight. Tracking your calorie intake isn't a diet, but it does help you consume the right number of calories according to your height, weight, body type and level of physical activity.

But it is best to seek approval from a nutritionist or dietician before starting a weight-loss diet or exercise plan. It is not worth risking your health with a generic diet plan that is not suitable for your body type. A diet plan is chalked out taking into consideration the daily calorie intake and BMR of an individual. Individuals with different body types and activity levels need diets that best suit their individual lifestyle.

To ensure consistency in your efforts and see noticeable results, you should try to limit your indulgences (alcohol, sweets, and high fat foods) to rare occasions and most of the time, eat meals that consist of lean proteins such as beans and legumes, and lots of fruits and cruciferous veggies. Not only are they low calorie, but they are also packed with heaps of nutrients, antioxidants, and essential minerals and vitamins that are necessary for the body to feel better as well as work more efficiently.

Also, try to incorporate the super foods such as yogurt, legumes and pulses, nuts, milk and milk products, berries, soya beans, turmeric, etc. in your everyday meal as they provide multiple disease-fighting nutrients and fill you up so you can enjoy plenty of food without beating yourself with the guilt of consuming excess calories.

Nutrition and health are very closely related. To achieve its true health potential, your body needs the right food and regular maintenance. A healthy and balanced diet needs to be complemented with regular exercise to ensure fitness, high levels of energy, and immunity against sickness and diseases.
