Research methods are the tools used to help you find, collect, analyse and interpret information in order to answer your research question. Sound methodology is important to make sure your research results are trusted and respected in your field. In some disciplines, the use of standardised methods is also important to allow fellow researchers to replicate, or repeat, their studies. The resources on this page have been designed with researchers in mind and can help you choose an appropriate research method for your dissertation.
SAGE Research Methods contains over 1,000 e-books, reference works, journal articles and videos which provide information about research methods and design. The database can help provide context for writing a research question, conducting a literature review, choosing a research method, collecting and analysing data and writing up the findings. It includes a range of methods commonly used in numerous disciplines. View the Sage Research Methods Guide for further details. Kortext and BibliU are online textbook providers, with numerous e-texts on research methods .
Open educational resources on research methods are available from the Open Access Research Methods Resource Collection . The National Centre for Research Methods has many online resources which are intended to help people interested in social science research methods. While the Global Social Change Research Project curates a lot of open access resources, predominantly on quantitative methods with some qualitative methods. Once you have located background information about your research design, you may want to locate scholarly journal articles on your research topic that use a particular type of methodology. Previous dissertations and theses will also help you to determine which methodologies are appropriate for a specific research question and how to construct a research study.

Centre for Doctoral Education
Publishing doctoral work
All doctoral students are encouraged to publish their work, and should expect guidance and support from their supervisors in doing so. Publishing is an important part of academic work, and publications provide opportunities for feedback on and development of work from wider communities.
Publications may also demonstrate that the work included in a thesis meets the requirements of a thesis (section 5.1). However, to avoid any doubt, there is no requirement to publish work in order to pass a doctoral examination; and furthermore, having doctoral work published does not oblige examiners to judge the work of constituting an original or sufficiently scholarly contribution.
Developing academic writing
It is important for doctoral students and supervisors to be clear about their expectations around publishing work. Such discussions could include what work to publish; when to publish it; whether it would be best presented as a conference presentation, journal article, book chapter, etc; where to publish it; and how to respond to feedback provided on drafts, for example through peer review.
Students and supervisors are encouraged to think about developing their experience with publishing their work across the whole of the doctorate. It may be helpful to plan this in terms of increasingly specialised audiences, or of moving discussions from relatively closed and supportive audiences (such as departmental work-in-progress seminars) to more open or critical fora (such as specialist conferences or peer reviewed international journals). A possible trajectory for development could involve, for example, contributing to the Institute’s annual poster conference or doctoral summer conference, taking part in the three-minute thesis competition, writing for blogs or magazines, presenting at external conferences, and finally producing work for journals or books.
Students and supervisors may also find it useful to review the support, guidance and materials available from the IOE’s Academic Writing Centre .
Doctoral work may be published jointly with supervisors – but this is not required in all cases, and it is vital that students and supervisors discuss their expectations around this early in the supervisory process. This is particularly important where different disciplines are involved, since expectations about authorship can vary considerably.
Students and supervisors should be aware of UCL’s policy on publication and authorship . However, this does not mandate any particular model of authorship, instead drawing attention to issues that teams should consider.
More specific guidance is provided by specific scholarly societies or professional bodies, and students and supervisors are advised to consider any such guidelines that might apply to their work. There is variation between these, although there are many points of consistency – for example, that authorship (including the order of authorship) should not be claimed on basis of seniority or status.
For example, BERA’s ethical guidelines include the following:
The authorship of publications is considered to comprise a list of everyone who has made a substantive and identifiable contribution to their generation. Examples of substantive contributions include: contributing generative ideas, conceptual schema or analytic categories; writing first drafts or substantial portions; significant rewriting or editing; contributing significantly to relevant literature reviewing; and contributing to data collection, to its analysis and to judgements and interpretations made in relation to it. Academic status or other indicator of seniority must not determine first authorship; rather the order of authorship should reflect the relative leadership and contributions made by the researchers concerned.
The implication of this is that supervisors who had been active during the period of work covered by the publication would normally, but not always, be included as co-authors.
Similarly, the British Sociological Association’s guidelines state that “Students should normally be the first author on any multi-authored article based on their thesis or dissertation” and that honorary authorship is not acceptable, specifying that:
Everyone who is listed as an author should have made a substantial direct academic contribution (i.e. intellectual responsibility and substantive work) to at least two of the four main components of a typical scientific project or paper: a) Conception or design. b) Data collection and processing. c) Analysis and interpretation of the data. d) Writing substantial sections of the paper (e.g. synthesising findings in the literature review or the findings/results section). Everyone who is listed as an author should have critically reviewed successive drafts of the paper and should approve the final version. Everyone who is listed as author should be able to defend the paper as a whole (although not necessarily all the technical details).
The implication of this is that supervisors would not automatically be included as authors on papers for which they had not made substantive and direct contributions.
The British Psychological Society’s Statement of Policy on Authorship and Publication Credit includes this summary:
Authorship refers to not only the writing up of the work but also scientific contributions (origination and formulation of the research idea and hypotheses, design of the research, designing and conducting major analysis, and interpreting findings). Contributions (such as designing or building research apparatus, recruiting research participants, data collation and entry, and other administrative duties) should not necessarily be considered to constitute authorship, but should merit formal acknowledgement if the nature and extent of the contribution is insufficient to warrant authorship.
This differentiation between authorship and acknowledgement may be helpful in giving options for recognising the contributions of different individuals appropriately. The BPS guidance is that “The authorship of publications arising from doctoral work should, therefore, normally be joint (with the student listed first). The supervisory input provided must, however, justify the inclusion of the supervisor(s) as co-author(s).”

UCL School of Management
University college london, 26 august 2022, the imb dissertation: how does it work and what are your options.
The dissertation is one of the most important projects that an undergraduate student can face during their years of study. A dissertation is a large body of academic work or a research project, and typically concludes both undergraduate and postgraduate study.
However, in the case of UCL School of Management’s BSc Information Management for Business (IMB) programme, the typical rules of a dissertation do not necessarily apply. An IMB student can write a standard dissertation, but they can also elect to do a consultancy or enterprise project. Wondering what the difference is between these projects? Let’s take a look at the IMB class of 2022 and how they chose to complete their final-year projects.
msin0067 Extended project - the dissertation module
When discussing the IMB dissertation project, what we are actually referring to is the MSIN0067 Extended Project module. As previously noted, there are three types of projects that you can select in the final year of your IMB, and the choice is entirely yours.
The Extended Project module is a double module, meaning that it carries 30 credits, and runs during both Term 1 and Term 2 of the IMB final year. Unlike other modules on the programme, classes do not run weekly, but approximately once a month. That way, there is enough time between each session to work on a particular part of the project. It also allows time for 1:1 meetings with supervisors in order to receive frequent feedback to build upon your work.
As a result, the progress of the project is very much down to the individual student - at least it was for my year - as there are no intermediate deadlines. But what is it actually like to write these projects and what experience can they give you?
IMB Dissertation - wei’s experience
When undertaking an IMB Dissertation, the focus is on writing an academic piece of research. That involves the assessment of academic literature to identify a research topic that can further advance what is already known.
Having talked to one of his family friends about e-commerce platforms in China where cashback reviews are fairly common, my friend, Wei Cao, decided to focus his dissertation on how these reviews affect customers’ choices.
Discussing his project, titled, ‘Cashback reviews: How does it affect consumers’ purchase decisions?’, Wei Cao told us, “I would say that writing this dissertation was quite a challenge for me. I had to manage my time and my effort well, especially during the last few weeks before the deadline, and reading extensively for the dissertation is also a huge amount of work. Also, working with my supervisor was a really good experience. He was really helpful, and answered my questions very quickly.”
IMB Consultancy Project - my experience
The IMB Consultancy Project is about conducting a piece of research for a business client to help them resolve issues and grow their businesses. While students are encouraged to source their clients and discuss a mutually beneficial project together, the IMB team can help with arranging these collaborations. Each year, through links with alumni and industry experts, the IMB team is adding more external clients to the consultancy project portfolio, covering everything from Business and Management to IT – so there is something for everyone.
During my time at Secondary School, I participated in an educational programme provided by a non-profit organisation called JA Slovakia. When deciding what to do for my extended project, I realised that I may be able to help them by researching their alumni. That is how my Consultancy Project titled “JA Alumni Slovakia: Establishing a Flourishing Alumni Network” came about.
To sum up my experience, I very much enjoyed the practical focus of the Consultancy Project. While the majority of projects in the IMB programme are quite practical, I enjoyed this project as I also had the chance to interact with a business client over a longer period of time. As a result, I have developed excellent time management skills, as well as an ability to communicate professionally and assertively and a well-researched project.
IMB Enterprise Project - paulius’s experience
The IMB Enterprise Project focuses on researching and testing a student’s business idea. Much like the Consultancy Project, the Enterprise Project is very practical and gives students an opportunity to try out business ideas before truly committing to them.
Running a business alongside his studies at the UCL School of Management, my friend, Paulius Serva, decided to conduct an Enterprise Project and focus on foreign expansion research for his business.
Discussing the experience that his project, ‘Alfa Klase Ltd Foreign Expansion’ gave him, Paulius told us, “The Extended Project allowed me to have a very methodical and comprehensive analysis of the business idea I had. Ongoing supervision was extremely valuable as receiving feedback made me question multiple assumptions and guided me through the whole process. The outcome gave me the basis to proceed with the idea further and I’ll inevitably use the knowledge for future ventures.”
Which type of Extend Project should you choose?
If you are studying or plan to study an IMB at the UCL School of Management, the type of project that you undertake in your final year is entirely up to you. But fear not, besides the inspiration from the quotes above, you will have a resourceful and extremely helpful teaching team in the MSIN0067 Extended Project to turn to for help and guidance.
I have only one remaining piece of advice: you should write your final-year project about something you are actually interested in. This project will make up a large portion of your final IMB year, so make sure you make it as enjoyable as you can by writing about something you actually care about.

How to Create an Effective Dissertation Presentation
For many students, the task of writing a lengthy dissertation is so daunting that they forget about the need for Dissertation Presentation! Amidst all the hard work of researching and writing, students in some courses still need to prepare for a high-quality presentation that will help them earn top marks. This article will help you prepare and give you some essential tips for success.
The Purpose of Dissertation Presentation
There are two main types of Dissertation Presentation that are normally encountered in UK universities:
Students will often be asked to present their dissertation work at a mid-point in their research. These presentations are usually made to a panel comprised of various faculty members from your department. In addition, they are sometimes structured as a postgraduate seminar, in which fellow students also attend. Both faculty and students can pose questions. The purpose of these Mid-Research Dissertation presentations is to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their progress and identify any weak areas that need to be addressed.
Students are also sometimes required to make a Dissertation Presentation as part of their overall assessment . This is a much more formal presentation than the Mid-Research one, and it is usually open only to the student, examiners and the research supervisor. During an Assessment Dissertation Presentation, the student is required to present a summary of their research and results. They will then be asked questions by the examiners in a somewhat lengthy oral examination. The purpose of this Dissertation Presentation is to assess the student’s original research project and test its scholarly validity.
Differences in Undergraduate and Masters Presentations
Dissertation Presentations may be required at both Undergraduate (Bachelors) and Postgraduate (Masters) levels. The key difference between these levels is the length and degree of originality expected. Postgraduate Dissertation Presentations will normally be longer than Undergraduate Presentations, and they will demonstrate a greater degree of critical engagement with the subject matter. They will also demonstrate some degree of original thinking. By contrast, most Bachelors Dissertation Presentations will be shorter in length and will only require a thorough knowledge of the topic rather than an original scholarly contribution of any kind.
What to Include
- Broad subject area – What subject area of your discipline does your work fall into?
- Narrow topic area – Within this subject area, what is your specific topic? (This may be simply an expanded discussion of your research title).
- Relevant Existing Studies – What studies have already been done on your specific topic? What are their strengths and weaknesses? How does your work fit among them?
- Methodology and Philosophy – What methodology have you chosen to conduct your research? Is there a specific philosophical context? Why is this a good approach?
- Project Resources – If this is a Mid-Research Presentation, what resources do you require to complete the project? Furthermore, have you identified likely sources of funding, or do you need any difficult-to-acquire materials?
- Case Studies – If you’ve conducted practical fieldwork or lab research, why did you choose these cases or projects? How are they the best choices for researching your topic?
- Research Results – If this is a Dissertation Presentation for Assessment, note the results of your research in detail. Relate these back to your theoretical framework and discuss how the results support or contradict existing studies.
How to Prepare for your Dissertation Presentation
The best way to prepare for your Dissertation Presentation is to review your work carefully. Take notes of the key decisions you have made throughout your research and the scholarly literature that supports these choices. Make sure that you have a thorough understanding of the scholarly context of your research, which should have been achieved in your early research stages.
Once your content has been written, you should create a PowerPoint presentation to use during your talk. Don’t forget the slides should be informative but not wordy – keep bullet points concise and use pictures sparingly. Make sure that you rehearse your presentation several times.
What Sort of Questions to Prepare For Dissertation Presentation
The questions you will face in a Dissertation Presentation are designed to test your knowledge of the subject area and your awareness of the context of your work. You will be asked questions to determine how well you understand the potential criticisms of your project, and how well you are able to defend this. Therefore, remember to reference established scholars and existing research.
You might be asked about the specific choices you’re made with regard to methodology and case studies, and how you accounted for any possible inaccuracies in your resulting data. Similarly, examiners frequently ask students what they would do differently if they were starting the same project again.
You should also be prepared to answer questions about the ways your research might be applied within your field, and how it might be supplemented in future. This is an effective way for examiners to assess the originality of your research, and consider its potential impact on your subject area.
How to Earn a High Mark
Much of your dissertation mark will come from the written work and the research project it represents. However, a good Dissertation Presentation will help make a strong case for a good overall mark, whereas a weak Presentation will confirm any doubts in the examiners’ minds. As such, here are a few key areas for success:
- Good Presentation Skills. As with any Presentation, it is important to speak clearly and concisely. Stand still and look your audience in the eye, and try not to rely too much on notes. Be sure to keep breathing and don’t rush your words!
- Knowledge of the Topic. If you truly have a good understanding of your topic you will be likely to do very well. Remember, much of the Dissertation Presentation is designed simply to test your knowledge. If you’ve kept pace with your reading assignments and practical work you should have no problem answering any questions that are posed to you.
- Professional Behaviour. Stay calm and focused during your Presentation, and answer any questions with objectivity and professionalism. Don’t be drawn into debates, but instead offer references to other scholars whose work supports your own agenda.
- Take Your Time . Many students make the mistake of rushing through their material and answering questions too quickly. This doesn’t give the audience a chance to thoroughly understand the quality of your work. Furthermore, it risks leaving out essential information and neglecting to demonstrate the depth of your research.

health diet essay
Healthy diet essay.
Consuming a healthy diet throughout a person’s life helps prevent malnutrition in all its forms, as well as a range of diet-related non-communicable diseases and conditions. But the increased consumption of processed food, rapid urbanisation and changing lifestyles have led to a shift in dietary patterns. People now consume fast food and do not eat enough fibre-rich fruits, vegetables and whole grains. So, to help students understand the importance of a healthy diet, we have provided a “Healthy Diet” essay.
Students can also go through the list of CBSE Essays on different topics. It will help them to improve their writing skills and also increase their scores on the English exam. Moreover, they can participate in different essay writing competitions which are conducted at the school level.
500+ Words Healthy Diet Essay
A healthy diet consists of simple, natural and/or well-cooked foods which promote health and protect us from diseases. It keeps our organ systems functioning well. The diet that we consume is decided by our socio-cultural norms, lifestyle patterns and the type of activities we are engaged in. A healthy diet includes nutrition, nutrients, food groups, a balanced diet and special dietary requirements.
A diet that contains all the essential nutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins in the proportion required for the normal growth and development of the body is called a balanced diet. The important components of a balanced diet are cereals, pulses, milk, fruits and vegetables, fats and oil. A balanced diet constitutes a healthy diet. Thus, we all should try to follow a balanced diet.
Role of Nutrients
Nutrients that we obtain through food have vital effects on physical growth and development. It also helps in maintaining normal body function, physical activity and health. Nutritious food is thus needed to sustain life and activity. A healthy diet must provide all essential nutrients in the required amounts. Requirements for essential nutrients vary with age, gender, physiological status and physical activity. Dietary intakes lower or higher than the body requirements can lead to undernutrition or overnutrition, respectively.
Eating too little food during certain significant periods of life such as infancy, childhood, adolescence, pregnancy and lactation and eating too much at any age can lead to harmful consequences. An adequate diet, providing all nutrients, is needed throughout our lives. Eating a variety of foods from each food group is crucial for supplying the individual with all the essential nutrients that the body needs, including carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and water.
Special Dietary Requirements
The amount of food or nutrients required by a person in a day depends upon the need for energy. These needs are directly related to age and physical activity. During the rapid growth years, i.e. 12–22 years for boys and 12–18 years for girls, there is a gradual increase in daily food requirements. But as we grow old, our daily need for energy decreases. The amount of energy required by people engaged in low, moderate or high levels of physical activity differs. A sports person always needs to consume more calories than a non-sports person. Similarly, the dietary needs of a woman during pregnancy and lactation are higher.
Before we eat, we should think about what goes on our plate, cup, or bowl. Foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and lean protein foods should be part of our diet. These contain the nutrients that we need to maintain a heart-healthy eating plan. Eating a healthy diet will keep our body fit, healthy and free from all kinds of diseases. With a healthy body and mind, we can enjoy our life and can achieve whatever we want in our life.

Healthy Food Essay for Students and Children
500+ Words Essay on Healthy Food
Healthy food refers to food that contains the right amount of nutrients to keep our body fit. We need healthy food to keep ourselves fit.
Furthermore, healthy food is also very delicious as opposed to popular thinking. Nowadays, kids need to eat healthy food more than ever. We must encourage good eating habits so that our future generations will be healthy and fit.
Most importantly, the harmful effects of junk food and the positive impact of healthy food must be stressed upon. People should teach kids from an early age about the same.
Benefits of Healthy Food
Healthy food does not have merely one but numerous benefits. It helps us in various spheres of life. Healthy food does not only impact our physical health but mental health too.
When we intake healthy fruits and vegetables that are full of nutrients, we reduce the chances of diseases. For instance, green vegetables help us to maintain strength and vigor. In addition, certain healthy food items keep away long-term illnesses like diabetes and blood pressure.
Similarly, obesity is the biggest problems our country is facing now. People are falling prey to obesity faster than expected. However, this can still be controlled. Obese people usually indulge in a lot of junk food. The junk food contains sugar, salt fats and more which contribute to obesity. Healthy food can help you get rid of all this as it does not contain harmful things.
In addition, healthy food also helps you save money. It is much cheaper in comparison to junk food. Plus all that goes into the preparation of healthy food is also of low cost. Thus, you will be saving a great amount when you only consume healthy food.

Junk food vs Healthy Food
If we look at the scenario today, we see how the fast-food market is increasing at a rapid rate. With the onset of food delivery apps and more, people now like having junk food more. In addition, junk food is also tastier and easier to prepare.
However, just to satisfy our taste buds we are risking our health. You may feel more satisfied after having junk food but that is just the feeling of fullness and nothing else. Consumption of junk food leads to poor concentration. Moreover, you may also get digestive problems as junk food does not have fiber which helps indigestion.
Similarly, irregularity of blood sugar levels happens because of junk food. It is so because it contains fewer carbohydrates and protein . Also, junk food increases levels of cholesterol and triglyceride.
On the other hand, healthy food contains a plethora of nutrients. It not only keeps your body healthy but also your mind and soul. It increases our brain’s functionality. Plus, it enhances our immunity system . Intake of whole foods with minimum or no processing is the finest for one’s health.
In short, we must recognize that though junk food may seem more tempting and appealing, it comes with a great cost. A cost which is very hard to pay. Therefore, we all must have healthy foods and strive for a longer and healthier life.
FAQs on Healthy Food

Essay on Healthy Food
Food is essential for our body for a number of reasons. It gives us the energy needed for working, playing and doing day-to-day activities. It helps us to grow, makes our bones and muscles stronger, repairs damaged body cells and boosts our immunity against external harmful elements like pathogens. Besides, food also gives us a kind of satisfaction that is integral to our mental wellbeing, but there are some foods that are not healthy. Only those food items that contain nutrients in a balanced proportion are generally considered as healthy. People of all ages must be aware of the benefits of eating healthy food because it ensures a reasonably disease-free, fit life for many years.
Switching to a healthy diet doesn't have to be a one-size-fits-all approach. You don't have to be perfect, you don't have to eliminate all of your favourite foods and you don't have to make any drastic changes all at once—doing so frequently leads to straying or abandoning your new eating plan.
Making a few tiny modifications at a time is a recommended approach. Maintaining modest goals will help you achieve more in the long run without feeling deprived or overwhelmed by a very drastic diet change. Consider a healthy diet as a series of tiny, accessible actions such as including a salad in your diet once a day. You can slowly add additional healthy options as your minor modifications become habitual.
Cultivating a positive relationship with food is also crucial. Rather than focusing on what you should avoid, consider what you may include on your plate that will benefit your health such as nuts for heart-healthy, predominant fat that reduces low-density lipoprotein levels called monounsaturated fatty acids(raspberries) for fibre and especially the substances that inhibit oxidation which we call antioxidants.
Why is Healthy Food Important?
Living a healthy lifestyle has immense payback. Over time, making smart eating choices lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease, certain malignancies, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and even anxiety and depression. Daily, you will have more energy, feel better and possibly even be in a better mood.
It all boils down to how long and how good your life is. According to several surveys, A healthy diet consists of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and fish. A higher diet of red or processed meats on the other hand doubled the chance of dying young.
Types of Healthy Food:
Following are the various types of healthy foods and their respective nutritional value:
Cereals,potatoes,bread and other root vegetables- These are the main sources of carbohydrates. The calories obtained from them enable us to do work.
Pulses, milk and milk products, eggs, bird meat, animal meat in limited quantities - these are great sources of protein. They build muscles and repair the damaged cells of our body, i.e., they are important for our immunity.
Ghee, butter, nuts and dry fruits, edible oil used in restrained quantities- These are rich sources of good fat. They provide more energy to our body than carbohydrates but should be consumed in a smaller amount.
Fresh fruits, vegetables and leafy vegetables, fish, egg, milk-these are good sources of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants are essential for normal functioning of the body. Though they are needed in small amounts, nowadays, nutrition experts prescribe their higher consumption as they help to fight lifestyle diseases like diabetes, obesity and even cancer.
Different types of healthy food when included in our daily diet in the right proportions along with water and roughage comprise a balanced diet. However, a balanced diet is not the same for all individuals considering many factors. It depends on a person’s age, gender, condition of the body-healthy or suffering from any disease and the type of work or physical activity a human does.
Benefits of Eating Healthy
Healthy food intake nourishes both our physical and mental health and helps us stay active for many years. One who break downs this broad benefit into micro-benefits will see that eating healthy:
Helps us in weight management
Makes us agile and increases our productivity
Decreases the risk of heart diseases, stroke, diabetes mellitus, poor bone density, and some cancers, etc.
Helps in uplifting mood
Improves digestion and appetite
Improves sleep cycle
Healthy food habits are inculcated in children by their parents early on. These habits along with the right education and physical exercise lead to an overall development of an individual which ultimately becomes the greatest resource of a country.
What is Unhealthy Food or Junk Food?
To fully understand the prominence of healthy food in our diet, we must also be aware of unhealthy food, that is, the food that we must avoid eating. These are mainly junk food items which are low in nutritional value and contain an excessive amount of salt, sugar and fats which is not healthy for a human body.
Junk food is one of the unhealthy intakes in the present day scenario. It makes us more unfit than ever before. It is high time that one realised this and adopted a healthy food habit for a sustainable lifestyle.
Steps to improve Eating Habits:

Myths About Healthy Food:
Carrots affect eyesight: According to historic times, during World War II, there was a popular belief that eating a lot of veggies would assist maintain the pilot's eyes in good repair. In actuality, the fighter pilot's eyesight was aided by advanced technology. However, the myth has persisted since then and many parents still use this narrative to get their children to eat more veggies. Carrots are high in vitamin A and make a terrific supplement to any healthy diet, but they don't usually help you see better.
Fat-Free Food : Health foods continue to dominate grocery store shelves but it's always a good idea to look beyond the label before buying. This is especially true when it comes to "fat-free," "low-fat," and "non-fat" foods. It's generally true that anything with less fat is preferable for some dairy and meat items.
Lower fat alternatives in packaged and processed foods contain other dangerous additives as fat substitutes. Manufacturers compensate for the loss of fat in packaged cookies, for example, by adding other undesirable elements like sugar.
Protein shakes: Pre-made smoothie beverages and protein powder mixes which typically claim to contain less sugar than milkshakes, slushies and diet sodas are likely to be the popular choice among customers because of the above mentioned reason. They both have the same amount of sugar and artificial sweeteners.
However, this is not true of all pre-made protein shakes and smoothies. Many of them, particularly the plant-based mixtures, are still nutritious additions to a balanced diet. Check the nutrition label to be sure there are no added sugars or artificially sweetened mixtures.
Organic food is better: Foods that are grown organically are better for you. Nutritionists labelling a product as organic doesn't mean it's superior to non-organic foods. It's a popular misperception that organic produce is nutritionally superior to non-organic produce. Organic produce has the same caloric and nutritional value as non-organic produce since it is grown and prepared according to federal rules.

Diet and Health Essay Model Answer
An increasing concern for many governments around the world is the declining health of their citizens due to a poor diet. While some people believe governments should be responsible for improving the health of their nation, others believe it is up to the individual. This essay will examine both sides of the argument.
There is no doubt that individuals must take some responsibility for their diet and health. The argument to support this is the fact that adults have free will and make their own choices about what they eat and the exercise that they do. Children are also becoming less healthy. However, their parents are the ones who provide their evening meals so it is their responsibility to ensure these meals are nutritious and encourage them to avoid junk food and sugary snacks during the day.
Despite these arguments, there is also a case for advocating the intervention of the state. People these days often have little choice but to depend on fast food or ready meals that are high in sugar, salt and fat due to the pressures of work. Governments could regulate the ingredients of such food. Some governments also spend huge amounts of tax money on treating health problems of their citizens in hospitals. It would be logical to spend this on preventative measures such as campaigns to encourage exercise and a good diet.
Having considered both sides of the issue, I would argue that although individuals must take ultimate responsibility for what they eat, governments also have a role to play as only they can regulate the food supply, which openly encourages a poor diet. It is only through this combination that we can improve people’s health.
The IELTS diet and health essay has a number of good points which would means it would score highly in the test.
The introduction clearly introduces the topic and sets out both sides of the issue. There is then a clear thesis statement to explain what the essay will do:
This essay will examine both sides of the argument.
Coherence and cohesion are evident from the topic sentences which make the subject of each paragraph very clear:
There is no doubt that individuals must take some responsibility for their diet and health. Despite these arguments, there is also a case for advocating the intervention of the state.
Transitional phrases and words also guide the reader through the essay. For example:
The argument to support this is... Children are also becoming less healthy. However , their parents... Despite these arguments , there is also ... Some governments also spend... Having considered both sides of the issue,
The conclusion summarises the writers opinion very clearly. It is always important to make it very clear what your opinion is if it is an opinion essay (you could put your opinion in the introduction too if you wish).
The grammar and vocabulary are appropriate, with a mix of complex sentences and topic related vocabulary.
The content of the essay is also appropriate. It clearly addresses both opinions and provides a number of points to support each argument. The ideas are clearly explained and will not cause any misunderstanding for someone reading the essay.

Importance of Health Diet for Modern Person Essay
A contemporary person living in a modern world should learn to eat well since what a person eats, in the long run, determines their health status. Eating nutrient foods can keep you healthy while eating bad foods or acting in an unhealthy manner will cause issues in the human body. Adopting a nutritious diet in daily meals is one of the most important aspects of good eating habits.
This diet is designed to help people achieve and maintain better overall health. Many junk meals that are not necessarily nutritious are consumed as part of modern lives. Taking adequate macronutrients and micronutrients are essential aspects of a healthy diet (Abdelhamid et al., 2020). I had little to no idea about my eating habits or how to eat “correctly” before taking this nutrition journal assignment. For example, I was constantly under the impression that I was overeating fat, and I didn’t know the difference between healthy (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) and harmful (saturated) fats. I ate breakfast for all five days, which improved my concentration during the day and gave me more strength to engage in physical activity. After learning about the importance of essential nutrients in dairy products like calcium, potassium, Vitamin D, and protein, I’ve decided to take one fruit and vegetable daily. As a result, I started taking fruits instead of snacks, which usually were chips, candy, etc. To make the diet more efficient, I took the vegetables as salads after lunch or dinner. I am pleased to report that I met my expectations in a few areas, such like I tried drinking at least a liter of water per day and stopping drinking soda. I found that this project was valuable not just in terms of my health but also in terms of the additional knowledge it provided me with to help me establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle.
I noticed that when it comes to organizing my meals for the weekend, I have no set routine, which might lead to consuming unhealthy items. As a result, I aim to make a concerted effort to incorporate more healthy options throughout the weekend, even if it means bringing smart snacks on the go. With this in mind, I am sure I will meet my objective of maintaining a healthy yet manageable diet.

Nutrition information offers a public health tool that could be used to promote informed consumer choice and aid consumption of a healthy diet.

Exploring Nutritional Balance in a Vegetarian Lifestyle
There was an abundance of information gained from the nutrition assignment. Firstly, I am a vegetarian and I am always concerned about getting enough protein and micronutrients in my diet. Due to this concern, I often make dishes like curries, stews, and vegetable medleys to compensate for my perceived deficiencies. Another habit I acquired from my growing concern for a balanced vegetarian diet is the frequency in which I eat. I now find myself eating around five times a day with medium proportions. It seems as though, I am hungry every three hours without fail. I usually do not watch my proportions or calorie intake since I assumed those aspects of my diet were of little to no concern considering that my diet is mostly plant based. However,
