What is Good Nutrition and Healthy Eating?

Good Nutrition begins with making healthy daily food choices. But the foundation of good nutrition is consistency in choosing healthy food and living a healthy lifestyle everyday.

Healthy eating can't just be part of a temporary "diet" or "program." It has to be a way of life.

And the good nutrition tips below will help you understand the concept of choosing the right macronutrients and micronutrients necessary for good health. So, are you eating healthy now? If not, maybe it's time to start following these "eat to live" healthy, good nutrition guidelines.

What is Good Nutrition for Healthy Macronutrients?

Good nutrition decreases your risk of getting sick and developing degenerative diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart disease. And it also increases your odds for living a happier life.

The important macronutrients ("big" nutrients) are proteins, fats, carbohydrates and liquids. The problem is there are good and bad quality choices for each. But here are good nutrition choices.Good nutrition also means staying within your daily calorie needs to make your healthy calories count. If you eat just 100 more calories a day than you burn, you'll gain about a pound a month or 10 pounds in a year. So managing calories is an important part of good nutrition.

What is Good Nutrition for Healthy Micronutrients?

Both daily exercise and good quality nutritional supplements can help with calories. Exercise burns calories and supplements help you keep micronutrients high while you keep calories low.

The necessary micronutrients ("little" nutrients) are vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

These are called micronutrients because you need them in smaller amounts than the basic "big" four macronutrients. But optimal levels of micronutrients are vitally essential to your good health.Is there a real fountain of youth? Yes! And it simply consists of pure water intake and natural unprocessed foods found in the human food chain that we were designed to use as human fuel.

Following these good nutrition tips and guidelines will help you understand the importance of good nutrition and how to choose the healthy macronutrients and micronutrients necessary.
