Having been accustomed to an on the go lifestyle for days and months, it’s pretty hard to monitor what we take in our diets and more so, when we aren’t really paying attention to it. Most people think that a tonic or an additional vitamin tablet will make up for their nutritional elements lacking in the diet but we are afraid to burst that bubble of yours with this article. But before moving ahead, let’s get to know the elements of an ideal diet first.
What is A Balanced Diet?
A balanced diet is a combination of diet that includes all the nutritional elements that is required by your body in an appropriate amount. The primary elements of any balanced diet are namely, carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals with appropriate amount of roughage and water that can aid the digestion process as well as help the body fulfill its energy requirements. Often people take tonics, but scientifically, no chemically synthesised tonic can make up for the natural replenishment you can get through a well balanced diet from organic and natural sources. And this is the primary reason why your regular physician or Ayurvedacharyas ask you to take a proper diet.
