So many people make poor dietary choices overall with food, not because they choose to eat poorly, but because few have really learned what are the best dietary choices for our optimal health. We have all been marketed to by a food industry that does not have our best health in mind and we have a health care industry that has not studied nutrition. There are over 150 diets on the market all promoting that they are the solution to your weight and health problems. We consistently get conflicting messages and information from the research and the internet, from health care professionals and marketing gurus. Who do you listen to? What do you believe?
First and foremost, I do not promote a particular diet. Everybody is different and everyone has a different lifestyle and dietary challenges for their own unique bodies. No one diet works for everyone. What I do promote is overall healthy eating with the knowledge of what our body needs. I believe the more we understand how our body functions and the roles of food in our body, the better decisions we can make on what we need to eat. I promote the why behind food choices. I promote choices based on understanding and assessing our needs.
