The problem with nutrition...

Dear Clients, Friends & Family,

Do you ever feel like this - the more you know, the more you realize you don't know? I often feel like that about nutrition. There is so much information out there and so much conflicting good research that it's sometimes difficult to know exactly what to eat. This poem sums it up...

The Dieter's Lament

Cholesterol is poisonous,
So never, never eat it.
Sugar too, may murder you,
There is no way to beat it.
Fatty foods will do you in;
You just cannot avoid it.
Some foods once had vitamins,
But processing destroyed it.
So let your life be ordered by
Each documented fact,
And die of malnutrition,
But arteries intact!

At the end of the day, use your common sense. Consume a lot of fruits and veggies. Eat organic and non-processed as much as possible. And listen to your body and what it's telling you. If you're looking food, feeling great, have tons of energy and are free of disease and illness, you're probably doing the right things. Bottom line - don't stress out about what you're eating because that's not good for you either!

Yours in health and fitness,

Sherri McMillan
