No matter what diet or lifestyle we have, it is necessary to get all the nutrients a body needs. Those are called essential nutrients for a reason. This article is about the essential nutrients to have a balanced diet. And I was curious what kind of diets there are, so it is also about specific diets and lifestyle.
The 6 essential nutrients are water, carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins and minerals.
Some say fibers are the 7th essential nutrient.
Most of these nutrients are provided by food. The body can only produce a few nutrients itself. The rest you get from a varied diet and / or from supplements.
