Diet plays an important role in deciding your health. Any health meet is incomplete if diet is taken out of it. A healthy diet is very important and you need to keep a check on the food that you eat. Whatever we eat is broken down into absorbable chemicals. The sugar and carbohydrates that we eat is broken down and converted into glucose. Similarly the fat is composed of fatty acid. Some of the fatty acids are already prepared by the body; however there are some that need to be had through the diet. Hence you can neither ignore the carbohydrates in the diet as they give us energy, nor can you ignore fat. To stay healthy the diet that you eat should be equally rich in all the nutrients.

For people who are looking for weight loss, only the diet with fewer amounts of carbohydrates should be had. The calorific value of the carbohydrate rich food is high. If you consume a lot of calorie you would have to do good amount of exercise to burn them as well. Hence if you need to lose weight you should consume less of carbohydrates.

Certain companies such as Atkins are providing the pre processed food that is low in terms of the fat and the carbohydrate content. These foods can be had if you genuinely want to lose weight. The use of oat also helps you reduce weight. Oats is fibrous as well as low in carbohydrates and fats. You can eat it to reduce your fat intake and reduce weight.
