It is obvious that humans eat almost anything. From one point of view, it is a good thing, but from another, it might not be such a good idea. Our ability to eat almost all foods and ability to get used to new tastes brought us to a state where many types of non organic foods and artificial flavors exists. Even though they are delicious, there are many foods that simply should not be present in a daily menu. Those belong to a group of so-called junk or fast food, which contain an abundant of calories but it is not valued much when it comes to nutrients the body needs.
Carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals – are all things the human's body requires in order to function normally. Also, the next important thing is ratio. Carbohydrates should be present with the highest amount, while fat should be taken the least. This means that most of the energy we generate for all activities comes from carbs. This is the base of many diets that use a decrease in carbs to reduce the total value of calories taken daily.
Nutripoints is a method for easier creation of healthy menus, which has all the requirements needed. It basically tells people about the structure of food, how many minerals and vitamins are present, how much calories etc. The basic understanding of nutripoints in foods makes it much easier for those people who want to eat healthy and stay away from obesity and other health problems. Nutripoints are available for more than 3600 foods. The concept of nutripoints is based on rating each meal with points, with 100 points being an optimum for a daily menu. This method is being used in many countries today and has proven to be one of the most reliable ones, at least when it comes to creating a healthy, balanced menu suitable for all people.
