What is Nutrition?

Nutrition is the components in our food which provide essential building blocks to assist the body in growth, development, maintenance, reproduction and health.

We all know we need to eat but understanding WHY we need and WHAT we need to eat to keep ourselves energised and healthy is often overlooked or not common knowledge.

The food you eat is going to be made up of a few different components. They are macronutrients which consists of carbohydrates, protein and fat; and micronutrients which is made up of vitamins and minerals. Natural food also contains antioxidants, enzymes and various miscellaneous factors which have added health benefits.

Notice how I said natural food? That’s because processed foods may contain some additives to help them appear as if they are a healthy choice but ultimately most processed foods are made from manufactured components

Choosing nutritious foods nourishes where body and both the macro and micro nutrients work in harmony to maintain health.

Here is a small example of what they do for us on a daily basis:
  • maintain a healthy heart
  • boost the immune system
  • provide valuable energy
  • nourish your brain
  • keeps your nervous system firing
  • engages your muscles when you walk, run and exercise
  • reduces inflammation
  • repairs any damage done to the body, inside or out
  • protects your organs
  • keeps your lungs clear and oxygenated

I get that you probably don’t want to think about your food in this way. Food is supposed to be enjoyable. We eat it because we like it and it tastes good.
So, don’t worry about the intricacies of what you are eating. Just focus on one thing:

Food is nourishment.

And make the choice every day to nourish your body. If you are unsure of what to put in your body and what to eat everyday, then I will guide you to nourishing your body as best you can.

Every body’s body is different, therefore, it will require different nourishment. We each lead different lives so the food we eat must reflect our own personality, our own lifestyle and our own body.

However,

Nutrition simply comes down to this . . .

Real food = nourishment
Processed foods = deprivation

Your body cannot process processed foods the same way it processes real foods. Our bodies are designed to function on the carbs, proteins, fats, vitamin, minerals and antioxidants from REAL food.

You may feel great for a while but eventually your body cannot sustain itself, leaving you feeling tired and unhealthy.
