Food Take ??“ 1 Day
Many people do not know how many nutrients are needed on an everyday diet. I am part of that people. What I noticed is that I needed more vegetables and fiber foods on my diet. These nutrients are what I am missing in my everyday diet. If I add these nutrients to my everyday diet, it will help me get better in my eating habits and probably give me better energy to go on during the day at work or at a normal day basis. I eat what I am supposed to eat everyday and I also workout what I am suppose to, but there are some nutrients that are missing, and those missing nutrients are vegetables and fiber. By eating these proper foods, my diet will start to balance it self and I will be in a good healthy stage that will help my body and help my health day by day.
My body is getting the nutrients that I need, I am pretty healthy, I drink plenty of water and eat my 3 meals a day. I eat plenty of meat and poultry and eat plenty of fruits, but one of the things that I need to eat more is vegetable to have a better diet. Vegetables are the one of the nutrients that I need to eat for my body (Butler, 2010) To get my body stronger so I could become 100% healthier on my diet. There are pretty negative numbers of vegetable nutrients showing in my diet. I will start eating more vegetables in my diet so my body could start getting the better nutrients that I need to get in my diet. Salads will be added to many of my meals, to help my diet get the proper vegetable nutrients and get healthier. By eating vegetables I will produce my body with better vitamin a nutrients and I will get better with my senses. Vegetables are one of the top foods that are needed on a good diet; by me not eating them I do not have my diet balance I need to produce my body with more vegetables everyday.
The other nutrient that I need is fiber in my diet. I need to eat a better amount of fiber in my diet. By producing fiber in my diet I will get my digestive system to work better and it will help me digest what I eat in a better way. With fiber I will not feel constipated or will feel bloated with the food that I eat. Fiber will also help me with my heart, that fiber I could get it by eating a special type of cereal that will help my body get the proper nutrient that it needs to get from the fiber nutrient (Soderlund, 2009). I will also improve my fiber by eating dairy products such as yogurts and on them I will add granola on it. I need to eat wheat bread if I eat a sandwich or something like that, but I will limit myself with that. Fibers consist of many foods such as grains, cereals, and pastas. By eating all this foods, the other part of my diet will get a better balance and I will be healthy and strong everyday of my life (Lo, 2009).
In conclusion I need to improve my diet by eating these nutrients that I have just talked about. Vegetables and fibers, there to nutrients are missing in my everyday diet, and by starting to produce my body with these nutrients, I will improve and balance my diet. By finding this information out I will get healthier and stronger with this special nutrients. Now my digestive system will be working better with the fiber that I will be eating with my meals. With vegetables I will have better strength in me and I will get better with my eyesight. Now that I found out the my needs to get better in my diet I will start by eating them and hopefully I will feel better everyday with good strength each and everyday.
