This simple list always get more complicated as I think more and more “Well,
what about…..?” So I am gonna spit it out and then expound on them in later posts.
1. Eat vegetables.
2. Sit in the sunshine.
3. Move your body.
4. Drink water.
5. Breath from your belly.
6. Eat food composed of ingredients you easily recognize.
7. Not too much caffeine, sugar, or alcohol.
8. Everything in moderation.
The nitty gritty of this list are the details and the real life application. Things like “If I don’t eat rice that is processed to cook quickly, how do I cook it?” and “How much water per day will keep me hydrated?” and “How much sugar is too much?” These are highly individual due to every body being different and every lifestyle varying (as in if you do hot yoga everyday you may require more water).
This is a straight-forward list. It is pretty hard to argue against these points. That is the messy element of being a Nutritionist- people have really strong opinions, habits, and beliefs about food and health. To muddle matters further, there are many varying opinions among Nutrition professionals. This list is meant to be argue-proof, simple, and straight-forward. If you do these things, you will have something right about health.
