Nutrition is the single most important aspect of becoming and remaining healthy. If you aren’t getting your vitamins, minerals, proteins and essential fats from your food, it’s only a matter of time before you start to suffer in one form or another. Food is just as important as air or water; and even though that statement sounds obvious, many people do not give their diet the proper respect that it deserves and then have no idea why they constantly feel tired, depressed, anxious or sick.
The fact is that when you are well nourished, every single cell in your body can run at it’s optimal rate of efficiency. Just like elite racing cars require elite fuel. Our bodies require only the finest, natural ingredients to maintain health and balance. If you tried to win a NASCAR race with a tank full of low quality, you would lose...miserably. So why do so many people miss the importance of making nutrition a high priority?
Eating well is a simple process that requires just a little bit of common sense. Let’s take a look at what the wisdom of the ages says about nutrition.
Food is such an important part of our lives that the bible tells us what to eat in the very first chapter...“I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will all be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground- everything that has the breath of life in it- I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” (Genesis 1:20-31) ... Your mom isn’t the only one telling you to eat your veggies ;)
How about your doctor? Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, believed that food held healing, restorative power. Keep in mind every doctor takes the Hippocratic oath in order to be licensed to practice medicine.He said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
We couldn’t agree more with this statement! People that eat healthy typically don’t get sick or need to go to the doctor. As the old proverb goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
We believe, through personal experience, as well as with empirical date from our clientelle, that eating a diet consisting of lean meats and fruits/vegetables, seeds and nuts is the perfect way to stay lean, healthy and full of energy. It's obvious when one of our clients isn’t eating the way they should be, because they aren’t seeing results nearly as fast as our nutritionally committed clients do.
There are lots of excuses as to why eating healthy is hard to do. Sometimes we hear the misconception that eating healthy is “too expensive.” People mistakenly believe that healthy food costs more, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Take for instance a breakfast consisting of (1) slice of Guiltless Bread, (3) all natural, farm raised eggs and a serving of cheddar cheese…the grand total for this meal is approximately $2. Not bad considering it has over 30g protein, only 400 calories and a mere 3g Net carbs. The same goes for a Guiltless Muffin…are you sitting down for this one?... $3 for 13g protein, 9 g of fiber and 16g of omega 3’s and 6’s.
Going to the hospital is expensive, treating cancer is expensive and missing work is expensive. Eating well is an investment in the most significant piece of equipment you will ever own, Your body.
Stay hungry my friends,
