Nutrition is the science that studies the relationship between the food we eat and how our bodies use that food as fuel for growth and daily activities. A healthy diet gives you energy, supports your mood, maintains your weight, and keeps you looking your best. It can also be a huge support through the different stages in life.
The science of nutrition attempts to understand how and why specific dietary aspects influence our health. The benefits of good nutrition can be found in physical and mental health. Good nutrition promotes a healthy heart, strong bones and teeth, more energy, the ability to think and reason better, and controls weight. A healthy diet provides also promotes good sleep, and gives the body what it needs to stay healthy.
Nutritionists can also help you detect food sensitivities/allergies or nutritional deficiencies and then assist you in devising a plan to improve your diet. If you determine the foods to which you react and your findings include one of the major food groups, such as dairy and wheat, you might ask yourself, “What can I eat?” A Nutritionist will teach you exactly what you can eat, what the alternatives are and ensure that you do not miss out on any important nutrients. Nutritionists can even supply you with recipes and books to assist you, so that you do not need to do any of your own research if you don’t want to!
