Diet is often referred to as verb, an action to be taken when trying to change something. While some people go on a "diet," your diet is actually your personal relationship with food and how you use food each and every day. Many people have trouble changing their diet to meet the demands of aging and disease.
Nutrition is the value of the diet, or food you prefer to eat, in relation to your body’s needs for optimal health and wellness. When considering food choices, look for higher quality foods which are higher in fiber, lower in fats, and lower in sodium. The content of vitamins, minerals, and other natural food products (phyto-chemicals) should also be considered.
