Improper diet Usually Leads to gut discomfort

  • Diet

A famous phrase “We are what we eat” contains all the meaning of how important it is to eat healthy foods and minimise the consumption of high-fat foods & sugary drinks. “Vary the choices at the table, often” is the principle on which a healthy and correct diet is based.

Improper nutrition, or an unbalanced diet, generally boils down to various factors including poor food choices, excessive consumption of junk foods, misinformation, and the spread of “fake news” on the subject of dietary needs. All of these components work toward the creation of an increasingly sedentary lifestyle that tolerates reduced energy levels.

Nutritional experts affirm that there are no inherently “good” or “bad” foods: bad or incorrect, can be defined as a diet that excludes a food or an entire category of foods for a specific reason (such as properly diagnosed allergies or intolerances) or that is too monotonous. A diet of this type may be deficient in many nutrients, especially minerals and / or vitamins, even if adequate in terms of energy intake. For these reasons, combining different foods correctly means avoiding excesses and deficiencies of energy and nutrients.

Let’s take a look at the symptoms of an improper diet


Feeling consistently tired even after sufficient nights’ rest.

Bowel changes

A lack of daily nutrients will start to affect your gut, often leading to lasting discomforts such as lazy bowel syndrome, dysbiosis and disvitaminosis.

Lack of good bacteria

Healthy foods provide the nutrients needed for good bacteria to replenish in the body. Your gut flora is one of the first areas to be affected when there is a nutrient deficit, leading to problems such as gut discomfort, diarrhea cramping and bloating.

Here are two important points to keep in mind

Food indirectly plays an important role in the proper functioning of the body

It helps us maintain a consistent body temperature and gives us the energy to carry out daily activities (even while sleeping). These functions are provided by fats, sugars and, to a lesser extent, proteins.

Food helps us repair any tissue damage, as well as build new tissues (for example during growth and pregnancy). These functions are mainly carried out by proteins.

Foods allow us to have defenses capable of countering attacks from external and internal agents (such as infections). This protective function is mainly carried out by proteins, vitamins and minerals.

Food aids us in carrying out basic biochemical reactions for life (breathing, eating, digesting, moving, etc.). This regulatory function is guided by proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates, mineral salts and water.

Improper nutrition is a common trigger amongst young people

An improper diet, lacking in essential nutrients, is increasingly widespread among young people. This is due to several reasons, including:

An unsuitable approach to diet from an early childhood

Rebellion typical of the age that leads to preferring only junk foods

Psychological and emotional aspects, in which nutrition plays a particular role, especially in girls

Bad eating habits such as skipping dinner to socialise

Use a traditional food pyramid to help prevent gut discomfort

The food pyramid is a worthwhile tool that provides us the information we need to make better dietary choices in our daily lives. It’s universally recognised as a base structure for a correct diet from which everyone can derive their own interpretations. The pyramid effectively communicates the role, quality and quantity of foods that must preferably be eaten in hopes of attaining better health and quality of life. Here’s what you need to know:
