It turns out that the main purpose of the active modern man - this is to live to a hundred years in a clear mind and sound body, and still getting pleasure from it! Scientists have found that this is possible under the four fundamental factors of a healthy lifestyle - diet, exercise, mental state and social relations.
About the enormous importance of a rational diet, while respecting a healthy way of life, no one probably would not argue. Lovers of good and plenty to eat waiting for inevitable retribution in the form of numerous diseases. The food is very closely connected with the metabolism, which supports the fine regulation of the balance of a healthy body. Therefore, all the nutrients have to do is balanced so as not to violate this regulation.
And first of all, a healthy diet should be balanced in content of protein, fat and carbohydrates. The qualitative composition of the food must meet certain requirements - need to eat less sweets and fats, and more - fruits, vegetables and foods rich in vitamins. In large amounts are harmful lard, butter, eggs, meat, sour cream, mayonnaise, cheese, margarine, bakery products, particularly yeast.

Such a diet should lead to the fact that the body will do a minimum of fat and carbohydrates, as long as the body does not burn the food of these factors, it will not accept for its own fat.
And there is already seriously need to think about the calories and even find them, because the diet should provide the state of energy deficit, that is, dominance over consumed calorie expended. For as long as the energy coming from food, enough to cover all the energy, the body will not accept for the oxidation of the internal energy content, that is fat.
But protein should be a lot, because in a complete or partial deficiency of protein the body immediately taken for their own tissue - muscle, liver, immune cells. Do not forget enough vitamins and minerals, or in their absence, there are diverse and highly undesirable metabolic disorders. And the fundamental point - the diet must be such that its principles may be a milder form, easily observed, and in the future to keep the result.
