What is Nutrition?
Nutritional science studies the effects of food on health, metabolism, performance and disease resistance in humans. It also evaluates human behaviors related to food choices.
Essential Nutrients for Life
The essential nutrients for a healthy body include carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids (fats), as well as fiber, vitamins, minerals, and water. Absorption of nutrients start the moment we begin to digest our foods. These nutrients are then transported throughout the body to enable the metabolic processes vital for life.
What does a Nutritional Consultation entail?
Good nutrition means getting the right amount of essential nutrients from foods in the right combinations. This enables you to absorb these vital elements. If absorption does not occur – then many of these health giving nutrients are excreted in faeces. Bad food combing often results in "expensive poo".
A nutritional consultation gives you the knowledge to make smart choices about the foods that your body needs and those that will help you achieve optimum health. This is the key to avoiding obesity, illness, and many of today’s most prevalent chronic diseases.
