Your body needs the right fuel to function properly and stay energized throughout the day. Many times due to poor diet plans, we miss out on the essential nutrients that we need daily. According to the WHO, we need all the necessary nutrients in our food to prevent diseases and support good health. The essential nutrients are broken down into two categories – micronutrients and macronutrients. The macronutrients contain protein, carbohydrates, and fat that provide energy to our body. Micronutrients include vitamins and minerals that are required by the body for a healthy immune system. Make sure that your dietitian includes all the necessary nutrients while planning your diet.
