The foundation of your diet is composed of macronutrients. They consist of:

𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐛𝐨𝐡𝐲𝐝𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐬: the main energy source in your body.

𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐬: essential for general growth and muscle regeneration.

𝐅𝐚𝐭𝐬: important for the creation of hormones and brain health.


The vitamins and minerals that your body requires in lower amounts are known as micronutrients. They are essential for many body processes, including immunological support, bone health, and antioxidant defence.

A balanced diet should include fibre, which is frequently disregarded. It promotes heart health, helps regulate blood sugar levels, and aids with digestion. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes are examples of foods high in fibre.
