nutritionIn today’s fast-paced life, it’s extremely difficult to get a well balanced diet. Now more than ever, families are working harder and longer hours, and their nutrition has taken a back seat to all of life’s demands. The new USDA guidelines now recommend a daily intake of 7-13 servings of fruits and vegetables, healthy complex carbs, lean protein and Omega-3 healthy fats. For most people, this seems impossible, until now.

Why do we need good nutrition?
Why are well-balanced meals so important to your health? The secret is understanding the basic science of our bodies. Our bodies are made up of millions of cells. These cells need to be replenished constantly due to the wear and tear of everyday life. However, these cells cannot be replenished on their own. They can only be found in nature’s nutrients inside fruit, vegetables, essential fatty acids, lean protein, complex carbohydrates, water, vitamins and minerals. When these nutrients are ingested into the body correctly and in the right amounts, the body can function at its full potential: optimal health.

Why It Takes Balance, and Why Fad Diets Don’t Work?
The key to a healthy body is getting the proper balance of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats, water and vitamins and minerals. Without balance, the body cannot operate properly. This is why fad diets don’t work, because fad diets are not in balance, especially those fad diets that provide the food in their plan. Most of the food these diets provide is chemically induced processed foods where most of the proper balanced Foods the body needs is missing. They are either too much of one thing (protein) and lacking in another area (healthy fats or fruits and veggies). Imagine our bodies like a car. What if the gas tank is full but there is no oil? What if the car is running perfectly, but the battery is about to die? Studies have shown time after time that a healthy body inside and out comes from the basic elements of nature, working in balance. Each meal should be a combination of a complex carbohydrate, fruit, vegetable, lean protein and healthy fat, all in a range of 300-400 calories, 4-5 times a day, with plenty of water.
