We need a balanced diet to ensure we are healthy and strong. If we did not have a diet where we didn't receive any of the necessary nutrients and supplements then we would not be healthy.
The array of foods we need is wide as are the nutrients we require to maintain a healthy body. A deficiency in any nutrients can result in your body becoming weak or getting sick. Our bodies and their make up are made of many chemicals and if we don't get replacements for these chemicals we will end up sick.
We get these nutrients through food, drink and if we are short of them through supplements like vitamin tablets.
For example all our bodies rely on protein for muscles, which is found in meat and other foods. If we don't have enough of this we become weak and will suffer and array of problems.
One of the most famous deficiencies was among sailors who travelled the seas during the middle ages. These sailors were lacking in vitamin C, which is used to ensure we have a healthy immune system. These sailors suffered a disease called 'Scurvy' which caused them to be weak and useless for the physical tasks required on a ship. To combat this, sailors were given large amounts of limes when aboard ships. This meant they got enough vitamin C and weren't ill.
This is a severe example of a lack of a balanced diet. People nowadays in the first world who don't have a balanced diet may suffer less drastic short term consequences but people may suffer fatigue or other issues that will mean they are not at their peak.
Get a balanced diet by eating a diet full of all foods including fruits and vegetables.

You must eat energy producing foods, you will feel tired.
If you eat too much of energy containing foods, you will become overweight, and that can be reduced from using up the energy and exercising.
Eating a nutritionally balanced diet helps control weight and lessen risk for developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity or kidney disorders. These chronic diseases are a consequence from an over-consumption of fatty meats that raises unhealthy cholesterol levels. Eating too much salt and foods made from refined white flour and white sugar can increase weight gain to unhealthy levels. Eating too few fresh vegetables, fresh fruits and whole grains and low-fat proteins, can result in being malnourished and overweight. Overeating can result and weight gain continues to unhealthy levels.
