                                                                             What is a balanced diet?

Well, people say, talking about balanced diet that it includes a whole lot of things varying from proteins, fats, carbs, fibers, vitamins, minerals and water. So, the diet can be a combination of your own considering the given specifications. As we know, nothing can be PERFECT, so no diet plan can be rated as a perfect balanced diet. You must do a homework for figuring it out according to your needs and the call of the body.  

I can suggest you the following check list of a balanced diet, which you can modify as per your wish, I got this from a nutritionist once.
  • Carbohydrates should get intake of 65% of the calories.
  • 25% by proteins
  • 10% by fats.
A person’s diet relies on his/her type of work and daily routine.
For a man indulging in any laborious work should have ideal intake of 2400 k calories. For woman it is 2000k calories. It varies if the woman is pregnant or lactating.
And one can get a complete diet of approximately 2400 kcal energy from the following list:
  • Cereals - 400g
  • Pulses - 40g
  • Fruits -50g
  • Green leafy vegetables - 50g
  • Milk - 100ml
  • Roots and tubers- 50g. (it can be substituted with green leafy vegetables)
  • Oils and fats - 30g.
If the person is a non-vegetarian or egg-itarian the daily quantity of pulses intake can be reduced.
