Personal Reflection

  • what I need to know to stay healthy is that its okay to eat different variety of food just not a lot of it and watch the serving size too.
  • what I can do to reduce heath risk is just by watching what I eat in general and how much sodium and other things are in it.
  • what influences my healthy behaviors is basically the food that surrounds me and when there food that I know is healthy that i am able to eat

How can eating a healthy diet affect my ability to live a healthy and balance life?

When eating a healthy balance diet it cant affect my ability to live in many ways. The first thing is that it lets me be able to do more things because when my body get the correct nutrient it makes me feel like I can do a lot more. Another thing eating a balance diet does for me is that since I do two sports i wont feel as fatigued as I normally would because I would have a lot more energy. Next is that I wont feel the need to want to eat more because my body already has everything it needs so on top of that I loose weight which also puts me and little to no health risk. Even so it also just makes me feel good in general because i know that I am eating what I need to eat.This is how eating a healthy diet can affect my ability to live a healthy and balance life.
