Recently, an entrepreneur asked me to write a couple of paragraphs on nutrition and weight loss. She forwarded my note to a dietitian employed in one of the top hospitals in the USA. The dietitian regards nutrition to be a fuel that provides the body energy to function.

This, therefore, brings us to this important question of misconceptions about nutrition.

“Nutrition is a critical part of health and development. Better nutrition is related to improved infant, child, and maternal health, stronger immune systems, safer pregnancy and childbirth, lower risk of non-communicable diseases (such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease), and longevity.” WHO

If we go by the WHO definition, then nutrition has a much broader role and meaning. Nutrition has three functions- sustenance, protection, and prevention. Food is not just a bio-fuel for the body. I am inclined towards agreeing with the WHO view. A restricted view on nutrition is a common misconception that is not just not restricted to common people like many of us but also by experts.
