Paying proper attention to what you are eating, keeping a record of your physical activity performance, and keeping track of your body and your health can help you achieve your health goals.

As physical and mental wellbeing are related to each other, a slight change in one of them hampers the other. All humans require food as fuel for proper growth and development of their mind and body and it differs for different age groups.
