Good Nutrition Gives Us Nutrients
Food is so much more than fuel!
Living organisms are not machines. They're incredibly complex, self-regulating, and dynamically responsive BEAUTIFUL systems.
To be completely transparent; I would say "food is fuel" and leave it at that! Then after more thought, more learning, more experience I understand thinking about food reduces food to gasoline, your body to a "dumb" machine, and you to a calorie accountant who does calorie math! We are more than that. Right?
FOOD IS POWER!
Every food decision we make sends a message to our body. Every food choice is an opportunity to direct, shape, and remake our health. Our body composition. Our performance. Our well being.
If food is more complicated than just fuel, then good nutrition is probably more complicated than "following the rules.''......SO what is GOOD NUTRITION?
SIMPLE.....Good nutrition controls energy balance...SIMPLE? no, not really, too much energy coming into the body causes problems. We can become resistant to important hormones (such as insulin or leptin). Inflammation my increase and a host of other issues. So what to do?
