The Nutrition of Eating A Healthy Diet
Do not get confused by trying to be 100% natural. The goal that you are aiming for is good nutrition and personal health. Making perfectionism, a part of your nutrition dogma is a very bad idea. Idealists in a constant search of the perfect diet do not have a life. They are neurotic
Highlights of the Nutrition of Eating A Healthy Diet:
- The perfect diet is a fantasy.
- Organic foods are not required for the beginning stages of good personal health.
- Beginners should not be concerned about ONLY eating organic.
- Everyone should be eating a realistic diet.
Get started improving your Nutrition at the Beginner Level.Where to start? The recommended approach is to tackle what is easiest to change first. Beginners should start moving away from eating junk food towards more whole foods.
Nature is not benign. Organic foods are not as good for improving nutrition as some Food Faddists would lead you to believe. The food additives contained in processed foods are, also, not the poisons that food faddists would lead you to believe that they are.
In other words, organic foods are not required for the early stages of good health or for improving nutrition. Good personal health is about achieving the proper balance in five areas: Diet, Nutritional Supplements, Exercise, Attitude, and Resilience. Eating organic is an advanced level strategy from the natural health perspective. Beginners should not be concerned about improving their nutrition by ONLY eating organic.
Nutrition and Healthy Eating
|On Organic Food: "It's a bunch
of bull. How do you know what's really organic? Today, there's all
these impurities in the water and the air. The water for the fruits
and vegetables has junk in it. If you get enough vitamins and minerals
out of normal food and whole grains, and you get enough proteins and
exercise (that's the key) then nature builds up a tolerance to all
of these things. It's survival of the fittest. You can't have everything
perfect, that's impossible, but the fit survive. The fit can handle
the impurities in the air and in the water, but the poor people who
are sick, it really affects them more."
The perfect diet is a fantasy. Even if eating a perfect diet were possible, it would take a great deal of time and effort. Perhaps, eating a more realistic diet would be a better choice for improving your nutrition and natural health.
