Exercise alone can not make someone healthy, proper nutrition is also vital. To meet allrepparttar daily nutritional requirements a healthy diet must consist of good quality, nutrient dense foods. Buy whole grain versions of breads, pastas, and rice. Keep frozen vegetables and fruits on hand as they are pre-cut and easy to use. Choose lean cuts of meat, eat raw nuts, and include fish often. Be sure to keep fat intake to around 30% of total calories. Fiber is also importantóa daily intake of around 30 grams is recommended. Donít forget your water, 8 cups per day isrepparttar 136901 recommended amount. This may all sound like a lot, but make changes slowly by incorporating only a couple of new things each week and youíll see how easy and delicious good nutrition can be.
