Road to Wellness, Part 1.
ARE YOU A FOODIE?

A “foodie” is a person who has a refined interest in food. A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger, says wikipedia.org. Agreed Wikipedia, I am a foodie! I have a refined interest in food to supply me with the right nutritional content and chose to eat out of a need for those reasons rather than convenience. And so should you!

With summer on its way, many people are looking forward to upcoming bikini beach days and have dieting in mind. What I have learned over the years from being in the healthcare field and managing personal health issues is that sometimes you need to follow a routine developed by you personally versus trying to fit yourself into someone else’s form. It can be very hard to stick to someone’s version of normal levels or average portion size on a particular diet because you are your own unique person with your own level of nutrient need. A plan based upon percentages of someone else’s normal won’t work for you. There are also those diets that will tout being healthy and natural yet they set you up on a routine where you are taking supplements to supply you with the nutrients you need. Such drastic changes or restrictions can set you up for failure before you even begin.
