What It Is
Balanced Diet is a food preparation which provides complete nutrients as well as supplies carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and fiber in their normal proportions. It is the basis for all diet modifications.

Some Tips
  • Eat 3 meals a day instead of frequent ones or eating between meals.
  • Establish a regular eating habit.
  • Eat a heavy breakfast, a moderate lunch, and a light supper.
  • Eat food of the right kind, at the right time and interval, in the right amount, and in the right condition of mind (eating in a relaxed atmosphere is ideal).
  • Have at least a 5-hour interval between meals for digestion to be efficient. Last meal of the day should be taken at least 3 hours before sleeping.
  • Eat more fresh fruits instead of rich desserts.
  • Eat at least one serving of dark green leafy vegetables a day.
  • Eat more unrefined, unprocessed foods.
