what happens if you have an unbalanced diet?

Unbalanced diet: Eating an unbalanced diet means you are eating too much of certain types of food and not enough of others. It means that you can become deficient in certain vitamins and nutrients. This can set you up for chronic illness. An example of an unbalanced diet is fast food, heavy in fat sugar and salt.
