Very few know the relation between diet and health. From the health point of view vegetarian diet has lot of good points. As compared to nonveg, vegetarian diet is easily digestible and contains less fat, sugar and calories. Because of the emphasis on fruits, vegetables and grains, medical experts and nutritionists everywhere in the world now recommend vegetarian diets. Naturopathy has made a detailed study of merits and demerits of each food and drink. Proper diet is a veritable elixir of life. A proper food must serve two purposes.


The food should supply all essential nutrients to the body and it should maintain the acid-alkali balance in the blood. The essential food elements are water, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals, vitamins, and fibers. A balanced diet contains all the food elements needed by the body to keep one healthy. Proteins build tissue, fats and carbohydrates produce energy


and heat. Minerals and vitamins are needed for growth, to maintain tissues and regulate bo9dy function. A diet lacking in any of the needed food elements may cause certain deficiency causing diseases. Both the energy value of food and the energy spend in daily activity are measured in units of heat called “Kilo Calories”. Diets for gaining or losing weight are based on the amount of calories taken into the body in the form of food, and the amount of calories used up in the activity. Special diets may be prescribed for people suffering from certain diseases.

For example the healthy body needs fruits, vegetables, sugar, but a person with diabetes must limit the use of sugar. Children need special dietary because they grow rapidly and need food not only to replace worn out tissues but also to provide energy and build new tissues. Older people need as many nutrients as children and young adults.
