Aside from knowing what to reduce, in this and upcoming series, we will look into the various healthy diet plans and what we should eat more for better health. 


Why do you eat?

First of all, have you ever wondered why do you eat? There could be several reasons:

  1. Have the feeling of fullness. To make and store energy for your daily activities.
  2. Balanced nutrition for better health. For you to live healthily and free from illnesses.
