The recommended diet is made up of different food groups having variable proportions. The biggest proportion comes from carbohydrates since these provide us with energy levels throughout the day. Fats, which can be classified as saturated and unsaturated fats, can also provide energy, for maintenance of body temperature, cell formation, and nerve protection.
