All of these foods are rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and complex carbohydrates, and are low in fat and cholesterol. Consuming the right mix of the right foods will provide your body with all of the necessary nutrients to help you boost energy maintain an ideal body weight and ultimately live longer. The following are just some of the benefits of a healthy diet:
- Weight loss
- Increased energy
- Improved concentration
- Reduced chance of stroke, cardiovascular diseases,bone density loss, and reduced risk of certain chronic diseases
- Increased longevity
