They say you are what you eat. So what you eat determines your state of health.

Your diet is the key to your health and physical appearance.

With diet you control your life, how you look, how you feel, how well you perform, even how smart you are.

Obviously, nutrition is something we should pay close attention to as correct nutrition can help fight disease.

You Are What You Eat: A Guide to Good Nutrition at http://library.advanced .org/11163/ has some useful tools to help you plan a healthy lifestyle interactively.

It includes nutritional information customised to your needs and a database of foods which help you plan your daily diet.

It allows you to submit your profile containing such information as age and weight to the Nutritional Profile Generator where it will determine your nutritional needs.

Once you have been there, your nutritional profile will be saved for later use. You can begin exploring the nutrition your body needs from the Food Counter, the Food Planner, the Food Database and the Testimonials Archive.

Healthy Choice (http://www.healthy choice.com/index.htm) has super recipes for the health-conscious cook.

Healthy Choice even helps you stock your pantry so you are able to whip up a healthy meal in just minutes.

To find out how to adopt a healthy lifestyle, go to CyberDiet at http://www.cy berdiet.com/ where detailed nutritional information and motivation can be found.

Find your ideal weight and calorie and nutritional intake at the Nutrition Profile or visit the Food Court, Fast Food Quest, or Supermarket Survey.
