The Ministry of Health (MoH) highlights poor diet as the leading cause of death in New Zealand. In 1997 it
accounted for approximately 8500 deaths compared to 5000 deaths being attributed to tobacco consumption.

Macro-nutrients are nutrients the body needs in relatively large quantities, they are; carbohydrates (carbs), proteins, fats, fibre and fluids. Macro-nutrients are not ‘foods’ in their own right, rather they are nutrients found in the various food groups. So advising someone to ‘cut out the carbs’ or ‘eat more protein’ isn’t specific or useful advice. The food groups that supply the macro-nutrients are; fruits and vegetables, breads and cereals, milk and milk products, lean meats (including poultry and seafood) and eggs, nuts, seeds and legumes. Oh and who could forget…alcohol.
