Nutrition: Eating to Thrive

From obesity to chronic illnesses, there are three key factors involved:

  • Toxicity
  • Deficiency
  • Inflammation

 It’s good to cleanse you system by eliminating toxic input- but it’s equally important to address nutritional shortcomings. The only way to do that, is to eat plenty of good, clean, nourishing food.

It's about quality not quantity: 

  • You can stop counting calories!

  • Focus more on food quality and less on food quantity.  If you are primarily eating whole, healthy foods (veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, whole-kernel grains and healthy fats/oils) you don't need stress about numbers. You can trust that your body will tell you what you need.  

 

How/Why does this philosophy work??

  • Our bodies require a consistent balance of healthy macronutrients (protein, fat, carbs) as well as micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants & phytochemicals)- plus adequate phytonutrients (enzymes, fiber & water).  When we miss any part of these elements, your energy levels decrease, hormones and neurotransmitters get imbalanced, and your metabolism stops working efficient.
  • The health of our metabolism (the machinery that dictates how we burn fat and produce muscle) requires whole, “real” foods & the complex synergistic blend of nutrients they contain to function properly.
  •  “Diet plans” (selecting foods on low calories, low-carb, high-protein or low-fat characteristics) fail because, they put your body into a hunger-creating, “fat-conservation” mode.
  • Your body eventually compensates by reducing your metabolic rate. Goodbye caloric burn. Hello weight rebound.
