A diet is considered to be balanced if it consists of the right proportions of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals, and also meets the calorie requirements of our body. However, following a balanced diet chart doesn't mean one has to starve or eat tasteless and bland food. Therefore, to lose weightand to stay fit, you need not have to try tons of fad diets. Rather,you should follow a balanced diet plan and eat everything in moderation. For maintaining the optimal body weight, one must keep a track of the daily calorie intake, which should neither be too low, nor too high. Hence, the healthiest combination for a balanced diet is low fat, low refined carb + healthy carbs + moderate protein i.e. approximately 50 percent of calories should come from complex carbohydrates, 20 percent from protein and remaining 30 percent from fat. Since most of us are unaware of the correct proportions of nutrients and minerals required in the body, our bodies consequently lack them. This eventually leads to various health related problems and debilitating diseases like cardiovascular ailments, diabetes, osteoporosis and stroke. Following are some balanced diet charts containing the correct amount and variety of food items which provide the sufficient amount of nutrients for health and weight management.
