After researching what maintaining a healthy lifestyle is, we thought it would be appropriate to research what a healthy diet is, and what it should consist of. The definitions are as follows:

  • A healthy diet is one that helps maintain or improve health. It is important for the prevention of many chronic health risks such as: obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
  • Source: Wikipedia

  • Recommended by the USDA in its dietary guidelines as a diet that emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk products, lean meats, and protein from beans, eggs, and nuts, and is low in saturated fats, trans fats, salts, and sugars.

This information will benefit us when putting together our powerpoint presentation.

We also looked at healthy alternatives to smoking, including nicotine patches and electronic cigarettes. The prices are as follows:
