What is a balanced diet?
It is a diet that gives one all of what one needs in more or less the quantity that is needed. This bulletin permits you to balance the diet with only a few simple rules. You need only learn the 5 common food groups (all foods will fit into them) and about the amount you will need of each food group each day. Yet this bulletin attempts to educate you further, to give you sufficient knowledge to be able to resist food fads and irrational diets, and to interpret the "nutritional" advertisements one is surrounded by today.
Furthermore, you may be interested in the spiritual well being of others. How can you help them spiritually if they suffer from hunger or malnutrition? You may owe your people the knowledge given here. Finally, although all people need the same foods, they may need them in different amounts due to special conditions of the moment. This bulletin will help you interpret individual differences and special needs.
