The main nutritional resources comprise (1) Macronutrients, like carbs, protein and fats. (2) Micronutrients, like vitamins and minerals. (3) Phytochemicals (compounds found in plants) that nutritionists believe may help to protect against serious disease. (4) Dietary fiber (both soluble and insoluble). Although this is not a nutrient, because we don’t actually “digest” it, indirectly fiber does provide a range of nutritional and digestive benefits which help to improve our eating habits and health.
As stated in the US Dietary Guidelines (2005), a healthy balanced diet is vital to promoting health and reducing the risk for death or disability due to chronic diseases such as heart disease, certain cancers, diabetes, stroke, and osteoporosis. So important is the link between diet nutrition and health, that it has been estimated that dietary changes could reduce cancer deaths in the United States by as much as 35 percent.
