Letter: Eat reasonably

Dear Editor,

With reference to Ana Nov’s letter on the price of food and the quantity of intake, I wish to clarify the following.

It is the quality of the food – its nutrition value and calories – which count, not the quantity.

Instead of taking too much of fast and fatty foods, one should take a reasonable quantity of quality food. This doesn’t mean that we can take energetic capsules either as they are also bad. Our digestive system needs proper and continuous quality food to digest and to function properly.

Therefore, let us eat a reasonable quantity of good quality food to keep us fit in order to live life to the maximum – healthy and happily.
