FOOD IS FUEL
Better nutrition is more than eating organic or simply close to the earth. Eating well is about listening to your body, recognizing how certain foods affect your mental clarity, and having the courage to think outside the “better nutrition” box.
Your food choices each day affect your health — how you feel today, tomorrow, and in the future.
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, a healthy diet can help reduce your risk of chronic diseases, maintain a healthy weight, and promote your overall health and wellness.
Unhealthy eating habits have contributed to the obesity epidemic in the United States: about one-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese and approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese. Dietary habits established in childhood carry over into adulthood. The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore.

Food is fuel for every metabolic process which is nearly universal in nature across species. See, The universal nature of biochemistry, Pace 2001. Your brain, physical and mental endurance, and health depend on your commitment to feeding it with the right amount of quality foods at regular intervals. Depending on certain factors, including age, body fat percentage, body surface area, body temperature, diet, external temperature, gender, genetics and glands, people’s basic caloric requirement varies widely. Known as Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), this quantity is the minimum calorie requirement one needs in order to sustain life while resting. A person’s BMR may be responsible for burning up to seventy-percent of their total calories they expend. See, Basic Metabolic Rate Defined.
For most people, simply sustaining life is a given fact. With our basic nutritional needs met, optimizing health is our objective.
