Kolkata-based nutritionist Hena Nafis believes healthy eating is a choice not a prerequisite
“HEALTHY eating is not just a choice that you make, it’s a prerequisite for healthy existence. We primarily eat food to fuel our body. Hence, if you eat good food, you will feel more energetic, have stronger muscles, bones and teeth. You will also experience improved concentration, mood, memory — which means not only better physical health, but mental health too.
Moreover, healthy eating along with adequate physical activity can help prevent lifestyle disorders like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, fatty liver diseases and even depression and anxiety problems.
Lifestyle disorders are a bane of modern-day living, hence smart eating is indis-
pensable for a healthy existence, and a good quality of life.” Hena Nafis, consultant nutritionist, health expert and owner of the all-day cafe, Eat Good Food.
