    Nutrition & Diet check


    Nutrition is the most important aspect of the human diet. Whatever we eat, affects our body. It can be a positive effect if we eat a well-balanced diet enriched with nutrients or it can be a negative effect if we eat a diet that lacks nutrition. Not only body, diet and nutrition also affect the mind and soul of a person. 


    A well-nourished body will have a peaceful mind and soul while an undernourished body will have many mental problems, especially stress when you are working professional. When a person has to manage personal and professional life together, nutrition suffers and when one is malnourished, stress is bound to happen.


    More importantly, diet and nutrition are more affected in females. Women are biologically different from a man and their bodies need apt nutrition to perform the additional task of releasing eggs during the menstrual cycle every month. In the case of malnourishment or stress or both, they suffer from various women's health issues.


    The most common problem in women is anemia due to lack of iron in the diet, low HB levels, too much stress or work pressure. All these can also disturb the menstrual cycle of a lady; at times increasing or decreasing the duration of the cycle. In some cases, ladies miss out on their monthly cycles. Undernourishment can also cause fertility issues, pregnancy-related problems, etc. 


    So, women should take care of their diet and nutrition facts to keep up to her personal, and professional lifestyle balanced.
