Covid-19 has changed people’s way of life. There has been a change in eating habits. In the idea of ​​health, people have really realized that health is an asset, not money. To fight against invisible germs therefore want a healthy life or your own immunity. Due to the body’s natural immunity, many are recovering from common fever, cough, sore throat and many are fighting to the death in ICU.
Even a few months ago, COVID-19 brought a lot of control to those who had a habit of not following the schedule when overeating or not eating at all.

The house that used to have a basket full of lotus drinks is coming home with a basket full of fresh fruit. The man who used to spend most of the day not eating to lose weight is now eating other meals, including breakfast, for hours. In fact, our body’s metabolism system is a matter of one day, a system that has developed over thousands of years. In contrast to this normal reaction, walking disturbs the body. This results in a malfunction of the immune system. So scientists are emphasizing on a balanced food system. Not only this, our physical labor, sleep and rest and many other daily effects on this system. Let’s not know what life should be like.

Balanced diet

A balanced diet is a diet in which all the essential nutrients are present in the required amount. A balanced diet is a proper combination of moderate sugars (40–50 percent), carbs (20–30 percent), fats (10–20 percent), essential vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and antioxidants for the body. So it is better to go back to a balanced diet instead of fancy diets like No Carb, Low Carb, Low Fat, High Protein, Keto, Intermittent Fasting etc. 

But be careful when choosing sugary, non-vegetarian or fatty foods, you need to be interested in the right and beneficial ingredients. The World Health Organization has also given advice in this regard. 

  1. Drink plenty of water. Drink 3–3.5 (like 10 glasses) liters of water a day. Less sweet or sour flavored fruit juices can be drunk. Coconut water, lemon water, fresh fruit juice, drink herbal tea with lemon tea, soup etc. are good. However, sugary juices bought from the market, soft drinks, not extra coffee. 
 Foods that have a high water content should be tried. You can choose low fat or non-fat milk or dairy products as drinks.

2. Everyone should eat fresh unprocessed food every day. Colorful fruits, vegetables, pulses (beans, lentils, spices, etc.), nuts, grains maize, sorghum, wheat, red rice; Stems or native starchy vegetables —sweet potato; Animal food: Eat fish, meat, milk, eggs every day. 

Eat at least 2 cups of fruits, two and a half cups of vegetables, 160 grams of grains, 180 grams of fish, meat and pulses every day. Red meat (cow, sheep, goat) can be eaten 2–3 times a week, chicken 3–4 times a week and eggs can be eaten daily.

Choose fresh fruits instead of sugary-salt-fat foods as a light meal or snack. Do not overcook vegetables or fruits. Avoid canned or dried foods.

3. Fatty foods should be eaten in moderation. Unsaturated fats include fish oil, olive oil, soy, sunflower oil, and nuts. Try to eat this kind of fat. Saturated fats such as ghee, butter, margarine and fats attached to meat are bad.

Processed meat contains extra salt, so it is best not to eat it. Trans fats, which are found in bakery foods, fast food, pizza, fried foods — these should be avoided.

4. Excess salt and excess sugar are both avoidable. The amount of salt daily should not exceed 5 grams. Foods cooked with soy sauce, ketchup or fish sauce are high in salt.
