A healthy, balanced diet

The following is a recipe for feeling good overall 

Nutrition depends on the right mix but you can’t forgo calories all together. Depending on your age and gender, a person with an average physique and physical activity should consume between 1,700 and 2,000 calories per day.

The energy balance, which revolves around energy consumption, also plays an important role. If you eat more food than you burn through heat, sports and work, then body weight will increase. The opposite also applies when it comes to weight loss. If body weight is to be kept constant, an energy balance must be maintained.

In addition to the energy balance, a balanced diet requires regular intake of essential nutrients such as macro and micronutrients.

Healthy and varied nutrition

Macronutrients include carbohydrates (found predominantly in pasta, rice, bread and cereals), proteins (found predominantly in meat, fish, eggs and cheese) and fats (found predominantly in vegetable oils, butter, etc.).

Micronutrients are usually needed less often than their "big brothers." Micronutrients include vitamins and minerals that support the production of hormones and enzymes and are important for growth. Eating fruits and vegetables is the best way to take in these important nutrients.

The key to success for every balanced food pyramid is a varied diet!
