Poor nutrition can reduce immunity, increased susceptibility to disease, alter the physical and mental development, reduce productivity1 have important economic and political implications. The evolution experienced by the western diet is characterized by a high consumption of animal foods, the presence of large amounts of refined products, high energy density; and at the same time, a low consumption of vegetables, manifested by a progressive increase in energy intake from total fat, trans saturated and simple carbohydrates. These dietary changes are accompanied by major changes in habitat and lifestyles and a progressive decline in physical activity and energy expenditures associated with deambulation, work and heat balance. Major cause of death in developing countries is related to diet, alcohol consumption, tobacco and physical activity, linked to a genetic component.2 Is difficult to quantitatively determine the proportion in which diet is responsible for the appearance of health problems, but there is evidence that dietary modifications can substantially reduce diseases.
