    The major rule of eating right is eating more natural foods than the so-called processed ones.

    The “processing” of the latter are more often with strong chemicals which are well known to harm in the slightest excess…most especially preservatives.

    These so-called processed foods come in cans, bottles, pet bottles, sachets, etc. and we see the list of ingredients filled with so much chemical formulas and terms we can’t even pronounce.

    Don’t get me wrong, some of these processed food contain essential supplements which are naturally scarce but an excessive intake can be deadlier than poison taken with prescription.

    My point is,
    Instead of those soft drinks, why not take just water and eat fruits?
    Instead of gala, puffpuff, biscuit, why not eat a square meal?

    Before you take anything, ask yourself how natural is it?
    And if a more natural substitute exists at the same or a slightly different cost

    Natural food is the best. No one can compare it with artificially processed foods. Some processed foods can cause diabetes. The additives used to preserve these processed items can also be harmful.

    Like i mentioned on a post earlier, Eating too much is not eating right…

    Eating right is getting all the food nutrients in one meal in their adequate proportion.

    One of the advantages of eating natural foods is that they contain more than one food nutrient.

    Vegetables and fruits are really helpful in boosting the Immune system.

    Take coconut water/milk instead of energy drinks. Coconut milk contains electrolytes that boost energy and keep blood pressure and hypertension down. Eat some ripe pawpaw once in a while as part of your meal to aid digestion.

    Many of us travel from one part of the country to another. If it is possible, why not take a moment to buy your plantains, yam, and other food stuff from sellers along the way or go to the market and stock food? having food stuff at home minimises the number of times one eats out. Food you cook at home is often better cooked than food bought from food sellers, especially the meat. So eating right can also mean eating home.

    Eating right can also mean eating home-cooked, only if the person can cook.

    @mayjovey, the processed foods too have more than one nutritional content. However, what I wanna ask is how do we get to know the adequate proportion of balanced diet to take?

    We don’t get to know the figures exactly but the macro- and micro-nutrients.
    As the name suggests, one is required in large quantity unlike the other.
    Knowing as many of each and their sources will guide one in consuming at least an average amount as required.
