Vitamins and Minerals

Understanding nutrition doesn’t have to difficult if you understand key principles.

Food is only a fuel source for energy for our body.

The correct combination of food metabolised at the right time is critical for nutrient absorption.

A deficiency of vitamins or minerals will manifest in the body as different symptoms and may result in chronic illness if not corrected early.

Eat a rainbow of colours each and every day.

Most dieticians and nutritionists will tell you to eat as per the food pyramid, I wont. Have you tried to eat that much food in one day and stay within a health weight range?

Everybody body’s are the same but different. To explain: people who live on the land (farmers) often will not eat as much fish as seaside dwellers.  Deficiencies occur when we do not balance meals with a range of nutritious food sources.  Iodine deficiency is the most common seen as I have noticed a reduction in people eating fresh fish, sushi and using iodised salt which results in the thyroid gland fluctuations.  When speaking with your nutritionist she will detect if there are any deficiencies and will design a specific nutrient meal base to top up levels in your body when running below average.

Listening to your body and knowing what is needs is essential to good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle with food
