Nutrition-what for? |දැනගෙන කමු!

Firstly, we need to understand what nutrition is. Nutrition is the science of food that is essential for ones health. Nutrition is also the study of people and their food choices and habits and how it interacts with society, physiology, economy and anthropology.

Nutrition is everywhere. Think about it, is the food we eat not nutrition? Is our health and growth not a reflection of our nutrition? Whether we realise it or not, we have been exposed to nutrition in all types and forms…from television advertisements, magazines to billboards. Nutrition is literally everywhere around us, but what we need to do is learn to differentiate between the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’ nutrition. You have the upper hand.

There is no point in dieting your whole life and exercising everyday all day when you really should be out their enjoying a cup of coffee with a slice of chocolate cake without feeling guilty! Most people feel uneasy around nutrition topics such as losing weight, what and what not to eat, exercise regimes and so on. But we are not here to tell you what to do and what not to do. We are merely here to help guide you to better your lifestyles in simple, new, innovative and exciting ways; of course with a scientific evidence based background. So, watch this space as we help guide you to be healthy, learn some interesting facts and learn to make your own decisions, while not feeling guilty about sneaking a bite off that cake.

  1. If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to leave comments.

  2. Everybody should know their own nutritional status. It is a simple measure by looking at the weight in relation to height which is called Body mass index for adults. Height won't get changed during adulthood. Therefore it is important to watch your weight at least annually.

    Currently 20-25% of females are overweight and another 20% are underweight. Both factors will affect the well being of adults and leading to chronic illness which will affect the day to day life.
