Most people put way to much focus and attention on (macronutrients) protein, fats and carbs….wasting their time counting calories and points.

The real focus should be on micronutrients! There-in lies the secret to weight loss and optimal health.

In other words, become a Nutritarian.

 

What is a Nutritarian?

Simply put, a nutritarian is a person who strives for more micronutrients per calorie in their diet-style.

A nutritarian is a person whose food choices are influenced by nutritional quality.

Food has powerful disease-protecting and therapeutic effects and you should seek to consume a broad array of micronutrients via your food choices.

It is not sufficient to merely avoid fats, consume foods with a low glycemic index, lower the intake of animal products, or eat a diet of mostly raw foods.

A truly healthy diet must be micronutrient rich – nutrient dense.  The foods with the highest micronutrient per calorie scores are green vegetables, colorful vegetables, and fresh fruits. For optimal health and to combat disease, it is necessary to consume enough of these foods that deliver the highest concentration of nutrients.

Low nutrient eating, such as the Standard American Diet (SAD) leads to increased cellular toxicity, over-eating, toxic hunger and contributes to the development of chronic diseases.

The food you eat can make you energized and healthy or it can make you fatigued, unhealthy and overweight. By learning good nutrition and cooking techniques, you will have the tools to create the lasting change you want.

Good health starts in your grocery cart!
