balanced diet is the most desirable nutritional state. most humans are exposed to over 500 different foodstuffs and drinkable liquids every day. obviously it is possible to eat only what is available in one's local environment. the challenge is to develop the ability to evaluate a broader range of foods and to select ones that will support a healthy, active life. such a diet is based upon nutrient density; the greater the food's nutrient content per calorigenic value, the better it is. foodstuffs containing high amounts of protein and good fat (like nuts, seeds, and oily fish), or a high carbohydrate/low-fat diet (such as may be consumed in a diet for weight loss) are poor choices. poor eating habits are the major cause of human illness. proper nutrition is essential for overall health, since nutritional deficiencies can lead to metabolic dysfunctions that may be deadly. nutrient deficiency can result in numerous diseases. overconsumption, especially of sugar and other processed foods, has also been associated with chronic disease, cognitive impairment, and even death.
