Don’t confuse diet with nutrition.
Diet implies a temporary change, a short-term fix to a long-term problem.
Nutrition is a life sustaining change in your daily eating habits.
Most of us make poor nutrition choices as processed food and fast food can be easier and quicker to obtain. Avoid them!
Instead your nourishment should come mostly from whole foods.
If it came out of the ground or off a limb it is a whole food. Vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds.
If it swam, walked or flew it is a whole food. Game meats, lean meats, chicken, turkey and fish.
Comprehensive nutrition includes all 3 macronutrients.
Protein, carbohydrates and fat.
Although you can get your protein from non-animal sources, humans are omnivores. Lean meats, chicken, turkey and fish are the better protein sources.
Eggs are also a great protein source.
Eat plenty of vegetables for your complex carbohydrates along with a daily fruit choice for a good simple carb.
You can include whole grains in your nutrition plan but be wary of Gluten.
You should avoid the bad simple carbs like most sugars, high fructose corn syrup, candy and sodas.
Water is always a good choice and you should drink plenty of it – all day long. Just do it!
Essential fats like those found in avocado, nuts, seeds and olive oil should be included in your diet.
Trans fats like hydrogenated oils are to be avoided at all costs!
Some processed food items such as a quality protein powder, a fish oil capsule, a quality complete meal replacement shake or a quality protein bar are acceptable supplements to your nutrition.
