Healthy Diet

A healthy diet contains a balance of food groups and all nutrients necessary to promote good health. It can be contrasted with an unhealthy diet, made up of processed food which often contains excessive amounts of sugar, polyunsaturated fat and salt.

The concept of a healthy diet is primarily a problem of rich countries where the lifestyle includes little physical exercise, a large food intake, and a trend towards factory-processed foods instead of home-cooked meal.

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." 
Thomas Edison
