As we know that the healthy and attractive body is the basic need of every person. As we know the proverb used by our ancestor that “पहला सुख निरोगी काया |”, it means that the very first and fundamental need of every person should be to have a healthy and attractive body. But we all know that this factor is totally depends on our diet, because our body works due to the energy taken from the food that we eat. It has been revealed in research that every one of us knows that proper diet should be very important for the healthy body but 80% of us not even know that what and how we have to take diet for healthy and attractive body.
There are some rules and restriction that we all have to follow for proper diet plan. Like, always eat food with happy mood in a relax posture, because if someone take a food when he/she is in tension, tired and in an angry mood then it is better to remain hungry at that time because it is very harmful for body. The person who does lots of physical work needs more nutritious food as compared to those who does less physical work.
