Nutrition means consuming nutrients to support growth, sustain life and protect health. A healthy diet is a key need for humans, and for that the body needs a varied combination of different nutrients. Eating carelessly just to satisfy hunger leads to an imbalanced and unhealthy diet. Complete omission or insufficient intake of some nutrients leads to deficiency of essential vitamins and minerals, exposing the person to various diseases or disorders, whereas overconsumption of certain nutrients may also cause obesity and visceral fat. It may be advisable to consult a dietitian for advice on a healthy and balanced diet, who may recommend a diet plan appropriate to your metabolism, health condition, sex and level of physical activity.
Who is a dietitian?
A “dietitian” is a person who has successfully completed a 4-year bachelor’s program in nutrition and dietetics. Dietitians analyze the effects of nutrients consumed by our body to develop a personalized dietary program to address specific medical needs.
A dietitian is a competent healthcare professional well-versed in nutrition and nutrients, who investigates medical conditions related with nutrition and nutrients, helps ensure economic, healthy and hygienic consumption of available sources of food while raising individual and public awareness of related issues, developing dietary plans to support specific medicinal or surgical therapies, and providing training, monitoring and oversight on matters related with diet.
