Eating fruits and vegetables can make people healthier in the long run. Even for diabetic patients doctors suggest few tips to remain fit with fibre foods and fight obesity which is available in plenty in both vegetables and fruits. Fruit is the way of life to fight obesity. It is ideal to live on a fibre high diet all the year round. Fibre has anti-inflammatory properties and is also rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Our body requires a variety of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, calories, fat, enzymes, trace elements, antioxidants for its metabolism and most importantly to enhance the immune system against the diseases and strengthen our body. To get the optimum health benefits, it is recommended to eat variety of fresh organic fruits to furnish our body with essential nutrients. Similarly, vegetables are also playing equal role in balancing your body metabolism and that in turn helps to reap happiness benefits. Life satisfaction is more important and that can be achieved by consuming fresh organic vegetables. But the pity is that rampant adulteration in food items continue to pose a real threat to the life of people in the Metro city. Adulteration of eatables is seen in every nook corner of Mumbai and that defeats very purpose of eating fruits and vegetables.
