THE TRUTH ABOUT NUTRITION+

Humans are omnivores and that means that most can eat meat, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and eggs.

Yes, some have food allergies and must stay away from certain types of seafood, peanuts, lactose, gluten, sugar, and other food ingredients or compounds. Most of us can eat almost anything and should have as large a variety of food in their diet as possible.

The two major myths floating around are that you have to eat a low fat diet to avoid getting fat and that meat is bad for you. The truth is that low fat diets frequently are high in carbohydrates and sugar which may actually make you gain more weight since you eat more of the food and get more calories into your system. Meat may contain traces of growth hormone and antibiotics and most meat is fed GMOs so it is not organic or very healthy but it won’t kill you if you have meat once in a while. If you are paranoid about it then you can eat fish or seafood instead of meat for a healthy protein and fat intake.

Trans fats or processed or hydrogenated oils or fats may be bad for you in the long duration but eating natural fat in whole foods is not unhealthy and will not cause heart attacks contrary to popular myth. In fact if you eat natural fatty foods once in a while then you will feel satiated sooner or stop eating sooner and will eat fewer calories than you will on low fat diets.

Balanced eating is the key to eating well and if you go on fad diets eating mostly one or a handful of foods then it is a lopsided unhealthy thing to be doing in the long duration. You need a healthy balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals to stay healthy and the more organic the food intake, the healthier it is for you.

If you eat a wide variety of organic food with dairy and meat too then you don’t really need food supplements or pills. To be assured that you are  getting trace minerals you can try taking some wild flower bee pollen once in a while, include some sea salt or Himalayan pink salt, or eat some seaweed.

Instead of taking a pill supplement find a natural food which contains what you think you need and get it in natural form. Not only will you be getting the vitamin or mineral that you think you need more of in a balanced way but you will be consuming other nutrients which your body needs which you aren’t even aware of.

Variety is the spice of life and it will not only make your meals interesting and not boring but you will be eating healthy even if you once in a while indulge in overly processed foods and sweet treats which some claim are bad for you. Even eating non organic fast food once in a while will not kill you or ruin your health in the long duration.

Unless it is for specialty health reasons, eating only fruits and vegetables for the rest of your life is not a very exciting prospect and a severe limitation on the pleasurable taste sensations which you can experience in a lifetime.
