c. Read the article, carefully, look at the sources, check-out the studies cited

Be careful of sensational headlines about food and nutrition. Look at the sources and studies. See who funded the study and if the journalist presented the findings accurately before you take the information seriously.

Question #5 - What does the 30-30-40 rule refer to in nutrition?

a. The proportion of Protein, Fats and Carbs in a healthy diet, according to some healthy eating experts

The 30-30-40 rule (30% Protein, 30% Fat, 40% Carbs) assumes you are eating healthy carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. It is a way to get a balance of the three energy nutrients that are each important in their own way as part of a healthy diet.

Bonus Question: What substance, although not traditionally included in the list of basic nutrients, is now often considered a nutrient in its own right?

b. Fiber

With the change in the food supply to more processed food, the need for sufficient amount of fiber in the diet has become a critical issue.  A lack of fiber in the diet has been associated with a rise in colon cancer and other digestive disorders.

Know the Healthy Eating Basics

As I talk to people, I realize that there is a great deal of confusion about basic healthy eating concepts. In addition, there is lots of good information about healthy eating that is simply not known by the average person.

Take the time to educate yourself about eating healthy. Click on the topics at the top of this page to learn about healthy eating. The more you know, the easier it will be to achieve your healthy lifestyle goals.

Get to know the basics of healthy eating, so that you can make better food choices for better healthy. If you put in a little time now, it will soon become second nature to know about the types and combinations of foods that will help you feel well and live longer.

Wellness

I am convinced that what we eat and how we eat plays a major role in how we feel and particularly, how well we are. For this reason, I would like as many people as possible to become more aware of what healthy eating involves, and of the extreme benefits that can be found in being conscious of what and how we eat. I know that wellness is about more than what we eat, but healthy eating will be my focus on this site, although we will occasionally allude to related aspects of wellness.
