Being Healthy The Food Way

Anamika Sahu, Managing EditorThe greatest investment once can make is in their own health! But somehow, we became lazy to invest even the bare minimum of our time in being healthy. While gym investment spiked, we on the other hand started eating junk food with an excuse of busy schedule and no time to cook. Now imagine; how can one be healthy without eating healthy food? I was not different. Despite doing regular workout, when I recently visited my doctor for my annual health check-up, I was stunned to know that I was not in good shape. But to my surprise, my doctor advised to treat my health problems with food instead of taking medication.
There actually is a new trend in the market, and I believe all good doctors are vouching on it – healthy eating as a substitute of heavy medication. This is why the clinical nutrition market globally is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 8.1 percent from 2019 to 2025. Thanks to the increasing health awareness among the populace, including young and geriatric, the clinical nutrition and dietetics industry is ready to serve the purpose of being healthy. While for most of us, being healthy means dieting and turning to internet to source the best (read quickest) resulting diet plans, which most of the times act adversely. Diet is not just about giving-up on some food or start eating bland ones, but it is more about what food suites your body and the genes. Yes, you heard that right! Your genes play an important role in your food plans. Hence, going to an expert to get your diet/healthy eating plan fixed is the right way.
