The Importance of a Healthy Diet:
The food you eat supplies much more than just fuel for your body to function properly. It provides the raw materials from which your skin, hair, muscle, bone, and all other tissues are made. Your diet provides nutrients that are necessary to manufacture hormones and enzymes that control the function of every cell in your body. Your body also uses these nutrients to make neurotransmitters that regulate how you think and feel. Therefore, ensuring a proper balance of nutrients (protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals) is essential to your overall health, muscle development and performance. You really are what you eat, and that’s why a balanced diet is SO important.
