A balanced diet is referred to as a Healthy Diet for both men and women. A diet that doesn’t lack any important nutrients like minerals, vitamins, fibers, amino acids, proteins, fatty acids and much more. A healthful diet is wholesome in nature. It does not have excess or lack of any crucial nutrients that our body may need. Some people think that having excess of one healthy meal or fruit can solve their health problems but it is totally wrong. Our body needs food in proper proportions, neither less nor more and we have to maintain those proportions to stay fit.
