A nutritious diet is essential for good health and weight control. In particular, a nutritional eating plan will definitely improve your chances of fast weight loss. So avoid fad diets or any type of eating plan that restricts you to certain foods. Instead, choose a healthy calorie-controlled diet rich in fruit and vegetables, moderate in protein and low in saturated fat or trans fatty acids, with foods from all main food groups. This helps to improve metabolism, maintain a stable appetite and eliminate cravings. Which makes weight reduction easier and faster, and future weight gain less likely.

Digestive System And Dietary Nutrition
Our food digestion system (mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine) helps us to obtain energy and nutrients from food. If our digestive tract cannot properly absorb macronutrients and micronutrients we become vulnerable to nutritional deficiencies. Carbohydrate, fats and protein are each digested differently within the gastrointestinal tract, but surplus calories from these three macronutrients are ALL converted to body fat.
