Plant Nutrients Provide the Key for Healthy Eating
Nutrition science has long been focused on macronutrients such as protein, fats and carbohydrates, and micronutrients like vitamins and minerals, explains registered dietitian Carla McGill, Ph.D. Now, emerging science tells us that there is another important nutritional category we need to be paying attention to: phytonutrients, which simply means nutrients derived from plants.
Physical Activity and Nutritious Choices -- Easy as Pie
and healthy food choices into your day-to-day life, the American Council for Fitness and Nutrition (ACFN) pulled together specialists from its advisory board of dietitians, physicians and physical fitness experts to give you tips. According to the advisory board members some simple solutions can make a big difference.
Essential fatty acids
Essential fatty acids are fatty acid that are required in the human diet. This means they cannot be synthesized by the body from other fatty acids and must be obtained from food.
Healthy Eating Pyramid
The healthy eating pyramid is a nutrition guide developed by the Harvard School of Public Health, suggesting how much of each food category one should eat each day.
Illnesses Related to Poor Nutrition
Many diseases in humans are thought to be directly or indirectly related to nutrition, These include, but are not limited to, deficiency diseases, caused by a lack of essential nutrients.
Nutrition and longevity
Oxidative damage was the agent which accelerated aging, and that aging was retarded when the amount of carbohydrates (and thereby insulin release) was reduced through dietary restriction.
For normal cellular maintenance, growth, and division, radical oxygen species must be sufficiently neutralized by antioxidant compounds
A persistent high intake of processed carbohydrate-dense foods (high glycemic load) resulting in repeatedly high release of insulin and leptin seems to readily make cells less responsive to both of these crucial hormones.
Obesity and Insulin Malfunction
Researchers have for long assumed that overfatness/obesity causes insulin resistance, which in turn causes type 2 diabetes.
Nutrition and Health
Health can be brought about by an imbalance of nutrients, producing either an excess or deficiency which in turn affects body functioning in a cumulative manner.
An essential nutrient is a nutrient required for normal body functioning that can not be synthesized by the body. Categories of essential nutrient include vitamins, dietary minerals, essential fatty acids, phytochemicals and essential amino acids.
