Confused about what good nutrition is?
You shouldn’t be — we know what works and what doesn’t.
In a moment, I will share five simple tips to help you optimize your nutrition and achieve vibrant health , but first let me clear up a few misconceptions.
Despite the “conflicting” scientific studies and media reports designed to confound rather than enlighten, there is no confusion about what constitutes good nutrition.
If we were to gather the world’s top nutrition scientists and experts — free from food industry influence — there would be very little debate about the essential properties of good nutrition .
Unfortunately, most doctors are nutritionally illiterate. Worse, they don’t know how to use the most powerful medicine available to them: food.
Common sense and scientific research both lead us to the conclusion that if we want healthy bodies, we must put the right raw materials into our bodies: real, whole, local, fresh, unadulterated, unprocessed, and chemical-, hormone-, and antibiotic-free food.
There is NO role in our diets for foreign molecules such as trans fats and high-fructose corn syrup, which interfere with our biology at every level.
If you want junk out, put junk in. Enough said.
If you want a whole, healthy body, put in whole real food.
Here are some simple steps you can begin taking immediately:
To your good health,
