A healthy diet should consist of 45-65 percent carbohydrates, 10-35 percent protein, and 20-35 percent fat (less saturated fats and 0 percent Trans fats). taking a closer look at the food pyramid is the best way to figure out how the food groups have to be consumed.

The base of the pyramid represents the carbohydrates-rich foods: grain group, bread, rice, and pasta. On average, an adult should consume 6-11 servings of the grain group every day.

The second level of the food pyramid represent fruits and vegetables. Our daily intake should consist of 3-5 servings of vegetables and 2-4 servings of fruits. The foods in this section provide us with fibers, vitamins, and minerals.

The third level represents protein-rich foods, such as dairy products meat, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. There should be three servings from milk group, and two to three servings from meat, eggs, or beans.

The top level of the pyramid is comprised of fats, oil, and sweets. The foods in this level should be consumed sparingly. These are just a few basic components of a healthy diet

A healthy digestive system- improves the person's capacity to eat well and the body's capacity to derive optimum energy from food.

A diet rich in raw, living food should be part of our daily diet. Raw diets such as vegetables salads, fruits, nut, vegetables, and fruit juices are rich with enzymes that hasten the chemicals breakdown of food. A diet rich in raw, living food provide our body with high energy, strong stamina, and all around good health. Eating food rich with enzymes will help our overworked digestive system.

Food rich in fibers is also recommended. Fibers do not completely break down during the digestive process, and they ''sweep'' the large intestine to keep it clean, and to assist in elimination of fecal materials. whole grains are also recommended to be eaten on a regular basis for good colon health. Whole grains have many essential amino acids, which are essential for our energy and well- being.

Drinking enough amount of water likewise promote healthy digestion. The digestive process take place in the
presence of water. As a matter of fact, all cells functions require water to perform optimally. Many believe that, if we drink more water, digestive malfunctioning would be greatly reduce and the body would be saved from so much discomfort.

Drinking warm liquids is also recommended. Ice cold drinks can stiffen muscles of the digestive organs, thus, reducing or slowing down their functions.

Exercise after eating. Light exercises, such as brisk walking and short distance biking, help the digestive system. Light exercises ca increase breathing and heart that can jumpstart the digestive process and increase the production of enzymes that will lead to a more complete digestion and less digestive discomfort such as constipation and heartburn.
