People with healthy eating patterns live longer and have a lower risk of serious health problems, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity. For people with chronic illnesses, a healthy diet can help control these conditions and prevent complications. Good nutrition means that your body gets all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it needs to function at its best. Plan your meals and snacks to include nutrient-rich foods that are also low in calories.
An unhealthy diet contributes to approximately 678,000 deaths each year in the U.S. UU. Nutrition Action provides honest, unbiased, science-based advice on nutrition and health. Are you hungry for change? It starts here.
