    • Balanced diet
      • The right balance of different foods and the right amount of energy
      • Mineral ions and vitamins are needed in small amounts for healthy functioning of the body
      • People who exercise regularly are healthier because the body uses more energy
        • The metabolic rate increases as we exercise
          • Metabolic rate can also be affected by inherited factors
          • Cholesterol levels can also affect a person's metabolic rate
    • Unbalanced diet
      • A person is malnourished when their diet isn't balanced
      • Malnourishment may lead to someone being overweight or underweight
      • Can cause deficiency diseases or conditions like Type 2 Diabetes
      • People who take very little exercise are more likely to be overweight because their body isn't using much energy which is then stored as fat
