Good nutrition is essential for healthy living and prevention of diseases. There are seven classes of nutrients required by the body: carbohydrates, fat, fibers, minerals, protein, vitamins, and water.
Our Hellenic Practice team is aware that nutrition is the science that teaches us how nutrients react with different elements in food concerning the growth, maintenance, reproduction, health, and diseases of a living organism. Nutrition includes food intake, absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism, and excretion, i.e., digestion of food.
An organism’s diet is what it feeds on, and it is influenced by the availability of the food, how palatable it is to the organism and the ability of the organism to process the food. A healthy diet also includes the method of preparation and preservation techniques which are essential for the prevention of food contamination.
A poor diet can lead to nutrient deficiencies which can result in anemia, blindness, cretinism, scurvy, preterm birth, and stillbirths. Nutrient deficiency can also cause health degrading conditions such as obesity and metabolic syndrome, and common chronic systemic diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and osteoporosis.

Nutrition vs Diet
Nutrition is essential for the sustenance and proper existence of human life and evolution. An individual can achieve an ideal level of fitness, and health through good nutrition practices. The Hellenic Practice provides a professional program which is based on the findings of research in the area of good nutritional knowledge.
Diet, in the modern sense, means to lose weight temporarily without proper knowledge of nutrition. But an overweight or malnourished person may start a diet program, which may be for good nutrition. Thus, “Diet” may be misinterpreted since all diets can mean different nutritional programs.
