Nutri­tion and favourite food

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News - By SI­GRID PE­TERS: SIGSFITBITS@HOT­MAIL.COM

I LOVE to read. I love to read about ex­er­cise and try new moves. I love, most of all, to read books on nutri­tion.

It fas­ci­nates me and is what lead me to be­come a nutri­tion coach.

How­ever, if you have even read any amount of mag­a­zines or watched morn­ing tele­vi­sion you will no­tice that there is so much con­flict­ing in­for­ma­tion out there.

It can be in­spir­ing and mo­ti­vat­ing in one mo­ment and then com­pletely ruin your day the next, to know that your favourite food or food group has now been de­monised by the me­dia.

When it comes to the ‘D’ word (aka Diet), I have just about heard of them all and given plenty a go my­self.

Don’t eat this, don’t eat that, never keep that in the house.

So many rules… I have fallen into sev­eral prod­uct traps in the past and have spent money on items promis­ing cer­tain re­sults but none of which served me any good in the long term.

The truth is we all know ba­sic right from wrong in the nutri­tion field but it’s the all-or-noth­ing ap­proach that causes the best of us to go crazy.

Along with the wa­ter con­sump­tion; eat­ing your veg­eta­bles is a no-brainer; those vi­ta­mins and min­er­als help to nour­ish your body and help it to do its job.

Fill up on veg­eta­bles for at least one of your meals in the day and you are do­ing a good job.

Or­ganic v non-or­ganic you ask?

Do the best you can do for you and your fam­ily.
