Getting all of the vitamins and nutrients you need. not eating too much or too less of something. starving yourself or binging is the farthest from a balanced meal. if you follow the food pyramid you are going to be pretty close to a balanced meal. but getting a good portion of each food group is what a balanced meal is, because you are balancing how much you eat in each group. Like if you ate only protein and fat like when you go on the Atkins diet, it is not balanced because you are not taking in enough carbs but are taking in too much fat. balanced meal also means not eating too much sweets and sodium, or whatever is bad for the body.

A balanced meal is one which contains a healthy variety of foods, giving you a number of different nutrients, including carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals, possibly fiber, possibly omega-3 fatty acids.

It is a fundamental question everyone should ask and a good question too. Having a balanced meal is important. A balance meal is imperative in order for the body to function properly. Although some may not agree but a balanced meal may mean different to another person. It all depends on the physical condition of a person, and if a person has ailments or food allergies, his or her balanced meal can be different from another person's diet.

What a balanced meal would be is having foods from all of the food groups. You need to make sure that you have foods that have all of the vitamins and minerals necessaryA balanced meal consists of all the foods that contain the nutrients you need per meal to meet your daily requirement. An example of a balanced meal may consist of a side salad, at least two vegetables, a meat, a bread, a healthy drink such as milk, and perhaps fruit for dessert.

If you don't get a "balanced meal" and all you eat is unhealthy foods, you wouldn't be fit. You would get sick all the time. Maybe even get diabetes, or have to stay in the hospital for the rest of your life.

First off you must ensure that the meal is balanced in nutrition. However, this "balanced" part will have to be according to where you are staying. You can always google a food pyramid to see the suggested nutrition for you.
