Importance of Having a Balanced Diet

importance-of-a-balanced-diet

Only a quarter of Americans meet daily-intake guidelines for nutrition. Don’t let yourself fall into the 75 percent. Eating a healthy diet is just as important as staying active.

Making sure to fuel yourself with balanced nutrition has a lot of benefits, including:

  • Preventing disease: Eating a healthy, balanced diet is proven to decrease the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
  • Strong bones: As we age, our bones lose density. Supplying your body with the right nutrients can keep your bones healthy and happy, reducing your risk of osteoporosis and bone breaks or fractures.
  • Stay energized: Having enough carbs, fats, protein and micronutrients in your diet helps you have the energy to get through your day!
  • Maintain a healthy weight: Pairing a good diet and daily exercise will give your body the energy it needs to keep a healthy weight.

Who can help?

If you have questions about finding the right foods for you, talking to your primary care physician is a great first step. Value-based care providers focus on preventative care, which could mean regular check-ins about maintaining a healthy diet for a healthy lifestyle. Preventing serious illness by eating a balanced diet may help save you from paying high out-of-pocket costs for hospital visits and medication for problems caused by a poor diet.

Medicare and Nutrition

Does Medicare cover any nutrition services? Individuals enrolled in Medicare may be eligible for medical nutrition therapy (MNT) under these conditions:

  • If you have diabetes
  • If you have kidney disease
  • If you have had a kidney transplant in the last 3 years.

Medical nutrition therapy could include an initial nutrition assessment, nutrition counseling or therapy services and follow-ups regarding your diet progress. This service is typically provided by a registered dietitian. If you don’t currently have a dietitian, your primary care physician can refer you to one that is in your network.

If you have questions about finding a primary care physician in your area, seeing if you are eligible for a medical nutrition therapist, or you want to discuss your Medicare plan options, we are here to help! Call us today at 1-800-991-4407 / TTY 711 (Mon - Thurs 8am - 11pm EST and Friday 8am - 9pm EST) to have your consultation with a licensed insurance agent.
