Technology has made every aspect of our lives efficient, relatively stress-free, joyful and excellent with breathtaking results and accomplishments.
The performances of the machines, automobiles and electronics have boosted productions, movement, transfers, entertainment, political exercises, structural development, mining, stock market, delivery, discoveries, agriculture, health care system and so on.
All these machines need optimal maintenance with the best products to ensure the continued enjoyment of their efficiency else, they breakdown and become liabilities. Some can even gulp millions of Naira for repair while others do not have repair options except to replace, for example, windscreen.
Like the machines we maintain daily, monthly or yearly, our bodies need even more, with close supervision and keen attention. The diet the body needs for proper functioning and effective output and health is called BALANCED DIET because it is structured to contains all the 6 classes of food; carbohydrates, protein, fats and oil, minerals, vegetables and water.
It is understandable that the country and her economy hasn’t been in her best glory days therefore achieving a balanced diet can be difficult because of cost and availability of the items. It is also worthy of note that cultural or religious dispositions have determined the what we eat, when we eat and how we eat, so, it makes things even more difficult.
The truth is this, it is not until we ‘obviously’ present the classes of food in our 1-1-1, 1-0-1or 0-1-1 formation diet, but until we obviously take our bodies as important as the gadgets and machines we constantly maintain for our activities at home or at work. Junk food or fast foods may be your best option because of the nature of your job or sole carbohydrate may seem to be the leading and chair class of food in all the plates you consume every day, and so on and forth, it doesn’t matter. What matters is this, you need to form a habit of or make a resolution to giving or wanting to give your body the closest attention it deserves.
Once a habit is formed, you may not be taking a balanced diet, but you are surely taking a STANDARD DIET that will keep you away from sicknesses and eventual death.
A great deal of death from dietary causes is on the rise due to the age we’re in. The advancements in technology is bringing processed foods to our stores and keeping us away from fresh foods. The enticing packaging and the sweet tastes of these processed foods have made us to sideline the natural foods.
Make it a duty to eat healthy, no matter how little. Make it a duty to eat more natural foods than processed materials.
