Diet and nutrition are important factors in the promotion and maintenance of good health throughout the entire life course. Their role as determinants of chronic Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is well established and they occupy a prominent position in the prevention of diseases. Presently, chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and hypertension are the leading killers in developed countries and are increasing wildly in developing nations. Factors such as underestimation of the effectiveness of interventions, long delay in achieving measurable impact, institutional inertia and inadequate resources have constrained progress in the prevention of chronic diseases. Besides, promoting healthy diets and healthy lifestyles to reduce the global burden of non-communicable diseases requires a multi-sectoral approach involving various relevant sectors in societies. The purpose of this review is to discuss extensively, lifestyle patterns and health and dietary habits and its associated risk.
