Food shouldn’t be about deprivation or giving up your favorite foods. It’s about enjoying what you love but using ingredients of higher quality that benefit your overall health.
Using food for Energy, Vitality, and Nourishment is what food is meant for.
What you eat changes everything. It can make a powerful difference in your life - what we eat effects everything from our skin’s appearance to our immunity to our memory and learning ability to preventing diseases to reversing the progression of other illnesses to simply feeling better overall - at any age. It shouldn’t be an all or nothing approach as diets tend to promote. Food should be about the individual, not about the diet theory.
Food does much more than just satisfy our hunger. It provides the fuel our bodies need for thinking, moving, growing, repairing and living. Our diet doesn’t just affect weight; it also affects nearly every physical process.
There are so many widespread misconceptions out there about food. For one the, “calorie in, calorie out” theory for weight loss and health is probably one of the most established . Many, if not most, people who decide to embark on a weight loss regimen begin to count calories to ensure they take in fewer calories than they burn. But the problem with the “you can eat whatever you want as long as you exercise it off” theory is that all calories are not created equal. It’s not only the quantity but the quality of the calories that count when it comes to weight loss and overall health. In other words, you should be more concerned with the ingredients you’re eating than the calorie count on the nutrition facts panel.
