Everything You Think You Know About Healthy Eating is Wrong and it’s Making You Fat and Tired

Nutrition and diet info is everywhere and each expert and association tries to lead you in their direction because they know best and their advice is going to help you. Right?

Well, maybe…

Everyone has heard (and maybe lived through) the intense focus on how much you eat. This has gotten way too much attention because while this does affect your weight and energy level, it’s certainly not the “holy grail” of health.

Let’s focus a bit more on the often overlooked (and proven) benefits of what you eat and drink and how you eat and drink it.


What you eat and drink

What is Metabolism? [PLUS Metabolism Boosting Recipe]

This word “metabolism” is thrown around a lot these days.

Well technically “metabolism” is the word to describe all of the biochemical reactions in your body. It’s how you take in nutrients and oxygen and use them to fuel everything you do.

Your body has an incredible ability to grow, heal, and generally stay alive. And without this amazing biochemistry you would not be possible.

Metabolism includes how the cells in your body:

  1. Allow activities you can control (e.g. physical activity etc.).
  2. Allow activities you can’t control (e.g. heart beat, wound healing, processing of nutrients & toxins, etc.).
  3. Allow storage of excess energy for later.

So when you put all of these processes together into your metabolism you can imagine that these processes can work too quickly, too slowly, or just right.
