B1.1.1: Diet and exercise


A healthy diet consists of the right balance of nutrients such as:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Fats 
  • Proteins
  • Mineral ions and vitamins

Carbohydrates, fats and proteins are used by the body to release energy and build cells

Mineral ions and vitamins are taken in small quantities to maintain healthy functioning

If these nutrients are not balanced, malnourishment occurs. This leads to a person being underweight or overweight
