A good diet can go a long way towards promoting a healthy lifestyle and reducing the risk of illness and injury. It can also improve your energy levels whilst helping you to maintain a healthy weight. The key to a healthy diet is a variety of foods combining all macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat) and a good selection of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).
All of these nutrients should be sourced from healthy foods, low in salt, sugar and bad fats, and where available sourced from 'real' food.
