Food, Nutrition, Mind, and Wellness

Improvements don’t last unless you have a big shift coming from deep inside. True life coaching helps you to call on your very own inner mentor, with or without the help of another human being, any time, any place.

Pick what you want. Not too many

Pick what you want. Not too many. In most cases plants That, more or less, is the brief answer to the supposedly incredibly complicated and confusing question of what we humans should eat to be as healthy as possible.

Eating a little meat won’t kill you, though it could be approached better as a side dish than as a main. And you’re better off eating whole fresh foods instead of processed foods. That is what I mean by the “eat food” recommendation, which isn’t as simple as it sounds. If your health issues, you should also avoid goods that make health claims. Why? For what? Having a safety argument on a food product is a clear sign that it isn’t just food and you want to consume it.

Overnutrition

Overnutrition is the type of malnutrition that occurs when you consume more than one nutrient (or nutrients) you need every day. The overnutrition of energy is widespread in developed countries such as the United States.

At a time when the rise of “overnutrition” is a more severe challenge to public health than undernutrition. Yet I contend that much of what we eat today is no longer, strictly speaking, food at all, and how we eat it — in the car, in front of the television, and increasingly alone — is not really eating, at least not in the way that humanity has long known the word.

Historically we forget that people have eaten other than a biological necessity for a great many reasons. Food is also about pleasure, community, family, and spirituality, our relationship with the natural world, and the expression of our identity. As long as humans took meals together, eating was about culture as much as it was about biology.

We become an orthorexic nation: people with an unhealthy obsession with eating healthy. There’s an inverse link between how much time people spend thinking about diet and overall health and satisfaction.

The American paradox

The American paradox: a massively unhealthy population concerned with nutrition and diet, and the concept of healthy eating

Chronic diseases with well-established links to diet are four of the top ten causes of death today: coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and cancer. Yes, the rise in prominence of these chronic diseases is due in part to the fact that we don’t die earlier in infectious disease life, but only in part: even after age adjustment, many of the so-called civilization diseases were much less common a century ago — and they remain rare in places where people don’t eat the way we do.

The rise of highly processed foods and refined grains; the use of chemicals to raise plants and animals in huge monocultures; the superabundance of cheap sugar and fat calories produced by modern agriculture; and the reduction of human dietary biological diversity to a small number of staple crops, including wheat, maize, and soy. These changes have given us the Western diet that we take for granted: lots of processed food and meat, lots of added fat and sugar, lots of all but vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

Early in the twentieth century, an intrepid group of doctors and medical workers stationed overseas observed that a predictable series of Western diseases, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer, soon followed everywhere in the world where people abandoned their traditional way of eating and adopted the Western diet. They named these Western diseases, and while the exact causal mechanisms were (and remain) unknown, these scholars had a little question about the common etiology shared by these chronic diseases: the Western diet.

Health Food Tips

Maximize it with food filled with nutrients
Offer the body the nutrients it requires by eating a variety of foods filled with nutrients, including whole grains, lean protein, fruits and vegetables and low-fat or fat-free dairy. Eat less solid fat food, add sugars and sodium (salt).

Turn on grains
The quickest energy supply to your body comes from foods like bread , pasta, oatmeal, cereals, and tortillas. Make sure that at least half of your grain food options involve whole grain foods such as whole wheat bread or pasta and brown rice.

Speed up on protein
Protein is important to muscle building and muscle repair. Choose lean or low-fat beef or pork cuts, and skinless chicken or turkey cuts. Get your protein twice a week from the seafood. Even, the sources of quality protein come from plant-based foods.

Mix it with vegetable protein products
Variety is outstanding! Select beans and peas (kidney, pinto, green, or white beans; split peas; chickpeas; hummus), soy products (tofu, tempeh, veggie burgers), and unsalted nuts and seeds.

Vary fruits and vegetables
Get your body’s nutrients by eating a variety of colors, in different ways. Consider blue, red, or blackberries; yellow and red peppers; and dark greens like spinach and kale. Choose choices for fresh, frozen, low sodium canned, dry, or 100 percent fruit.

Don’t think about dairy
Foods such as fat-free and low-fat milk, cheese, yogurt, and fortified soy beverages (soymilk) help create and sustain the strong bones that are required for daily activities.

Equilibre the meals
Use all food classes every day to use MyPlate as a reminder.

Drink some water
Stay hydrated with drinking water, rather than sugar drinks. Keep a reusable water bottle with you to keep the water on hand at all times.
