A diet chart provides a basic guideline regarding the foods to be taken. It is usually planned by the dietician after analyzing the person's medical condition. To prevent further complications of the disease or to maintain a healthy weight, a diet chart is designed by the dietician. Lifestyle disorders like diabetes and obesity can be avoided by following a healthy diet chart. The diet chart should include lots of vegetables and fruits, increased fiber foods with nuts. Sugary, fried foods, and carbonated drinks are avoided in the diet plans.
