Being fit and healthy, productive and appealing is the goal. A good nutrition brings you closer to this goal. The composition of the nutrition should include biologically produced, regional and seasonal products.
A balanced nutrition will include all essential nutrients. The right balance of carbohydrates, fat, proteins, vitamins, minerals and micronutrients and water plays a major role in a balanced nutrition. The nutritional pyramid displays the right balance between the different kinds of nutrients.
To function perfectly, the body needs energy and nutrients. The chemical energy coming from the nutrition is converted into biological energy by metabolic processes. The biological energy fuels the vital functions.
