 Plant Based Food | Food Plan

    Nutrition during adult years emphasize the importance of diet in maintaining health and preventing diseases. Significant physiological and psycho-social changes occur during adult years i.e. around the age group of 25-55 years. 

    The main physiological changes that are involved during this period are weight gain which involves shifting of body composition with a lessening of lean body mass and an accumulation of large fat stores. During mid-adulthood one needs to follow nutritional fundamentals that were introduced during early adulthood plus regular exercise.

    The role of nutrition during adulthood has thus expanded significantly and is now viewed as a tool that can be used not just to prevent deficiency diseases but as a defense against chronic diseases.
