What is a healthy balanced diet?
We all know we should be eating ‘healthy’ but what exactly does this mean?
Many people hear the words ‘healthy eating ‘ and instantly think of a restricted diet consisting of bland foods paired with huge servings of fruit and vegetables.
This is most definitely not the case. A healthy balanced diet should include foods from all the major food groups in the right proportions and quantities to maintain a healthy body weight. Here at We Train You Gain we have a great team who are able to help educate and support you with all your dietary needs.
For many people its easy to slip into a pattern of eating the same meals every week, picking the same unhealthy snacks for that quick energy boost or simply putting another ready meal into the microwave after a busy day. If this sounds like you then we can educate you on exactly how to achieve a healthy balanced diet easily and gradually so that the changes you make are sustainable for life.
Healthy eating has multiple benefits, including;
- Increased energy
- Improved sleep quality
- Improved mood and mental well-being
- Helping you maintain a healthy body weight
- Lowering the risk of chronic health conditions such as heart disease, stroke and cancer.
