While many of you may know a thing or two about nutrition, we hear so many mixed messages today – low-fat, low-carb, no dairy, no grains, paleo, etc. – that you may be unsure of what to actually believe.
Should you eat eggs? Will gluten make you fat? Is fasting the answer? What should you actually eat? How much of it should you eat? And how should you eat it? This nutrition guide will provide you with the answers to those questions. In reality, good nutrition should not be all that complicated. While it may not always easy, it shouldn’t be rocket science, either.
To truly optimize your nutrition, your focus should mainly be on one thing: consuming real, whole, minimally processed food on a consistent basis. It’s as simple as that.
The healthiest of diets are composed of real, whole, minimally processed foods full of high-quality proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vegetables, and fruits. These foods provide vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants that are the raw materials your body needs to optimize your health, performance and body composition.
