Dietetics and Nutrition
The proverbial saying 'You are what you eat' is the notion that diet plays a key role in your overall health and wellbeing. A balanced diet supplies the nutrients your body needs to work effectively. Without balanced nutrition, your body is more prone to diseases, infections, fatigue, and low performance. Eating well helps to reduce the risks of physical health problems like heart diseases and diabetes.
