Is there a perfect diet for everyone?

perfect diet

We are all unique… and subtle differences in genetics, body type, preferences, culture and environment can affect which type of diet we should eat...

Your lifestyle determines what you will eat. This trait of each & every one of us being unique in the way our body works is known as bio-individuality. 

We therefore need to ‘listen’ to our bodies in order to understand what they need better. Ask yourself, who am I nutritionally? Do I get a stomach-ache, nausea, diarrhea, allergic reactions or fatigue after I eat a certain food type? Noting such changes could help you establish which foods you should eat & which ones you should avoid and incorporate what’s best for you in your balanced healthy diet. 

The fact is, ‘One man’s food is another man’s poison’ – what works for one person may not work for the next. Therefore there is no specific diet that is perfect for everyone, however there is a silver lining in this dilemma –Healthy Eating Guidelines. Nutrition experts created these simple, straight forward guidelines to help people make the best eating choices. 

These guidelines include the Healthy Eating Plate –ensures you have a healthy balanced meal every day, the Healthy Eating Pyramid –aids in shopping for foods in a proportion best for wellness attainment & the Stay Active reminder –exercise is key for our body, whether to lose weight or to simply keep fit. No shortcuts! 

Bottom Line: The best diet for YOU is the one you get results with and that you can stick to in the long term. Both the Healthy Eating Pyramid and the Healthy Eating Plate are based on the latest science about how our food, drink, and activity choices affect our health.
