Definitions of Healthy eating

Providing proper nutrition to you and your family is an important part of maintaining your health and living well. Whether you are trying to make a lifestyle change by eating more organic foods, or you are on a diet to lose weight, it is important to make good choices about the foods you eat. Many retail stores offer healthy alternatives. There are also retail stores that specialize in selling dieting, organic or other nutritional foods. Below are some common food terms for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

  • Detoxify – The process of removing toxins to cleanse the body. Often herbal supplements are sold that claim to be able to detoxify the body, but as this is a form of alternative medicine it's claims have little scientific backing.
  • Antioxidant – These are substances that may protect your body against free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells or play a role in heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants include vitamins C, A and E as well as beta carotene. High levels of antioxidants can be found in fruits and vegetables.
  • Protein – Foods high in protein can help with weight loss and keep appetites under control. Proteins are found in meats, milk, eggs and cheese.
  • Carbohydrates – Your body uses carbohydrates to make glucose, which is transferred into energy to keep your body going. Choose to eat complex carbohydrates like whole grains that are a good source of fiber.
  • Organic – Food that is classified as organic is food that has been grown without using pesticides or chemicals. Because over time chemicals in the foods you eat build up in your body, consuming organic foods is said to be better for your health.
