And now we’ve gotten to the last of the Five Pillars for Success…Nutrition. There are several reasons this is the final pillar. No matter what healthy food plan you use, unless you have the other pillars in place, your chance of sustained change, and therefore success, are pretty slim.

When I work with my clients, I don’t dictate what they should eat. It’s really not about that. Of course, I recommend healthy food choices in healthy portions but it’s so much more important to put food in its proper place your life.

What is food really?

Food is information for your cells. It informs your cells’ performance. So, of course you would like to give them the right information for optimal performance. Food has the ability to shape the development of the cells. Doesn’t it then make sense to give your cells the food that provides the most and best information?

Then what is good food?

Food that is whole and natural and nutrient dense gives our cells the best information. Unfortunately, the food we often consume is none of these things. I work with my clients to help them make the best choices using  what is available in nature. When we eat processed food, the nutrients are often separated out and broken down into component parts. The components work best in synergy with each other. When we eat whole foods, those components remain together and are consumed as they were meant to be consumed.

Finding foods that serve us nutritionally can often be a challenge. I help my clients navigate the complicated world of food selection so they can get good nutrition and still enjoy what they’re eating.

    One thing I’m doing right, Karen. It took awhile though. I always thought I was doing good, but when I was working, I ate alot of comfort food, especially when I was working nights. It’s french fries and snack food on our breaks. In retirement I caught up on sleep and not so tired all the time. There’s more time for preparing my own meals and to have a garden.

      Lily…it makes all the difference when you’re well rested and have the time to do what’s right for your healthy body. Keep up the good work.

    Like Lily I eat much better now that I am retired, considerably more home grown vegetables. I rarely have a meal from a restaurant or fast food. Rest and food are key to well being. Thanks!

      That is so true Cindy. I’m happy to read that you’re putting your new found freedom to good use so you can enjoy your remaining years in vibrant health.

    I had a near death experience – my diet is improving. It isn’t perfect AND it is better. I am grateful to have lived – so I am thankful to my body by feeding it well.

      Sometimes it takes a near death experience to get your attention. Keep working on it and the other pillars of success. Feel free to schedule a free consultation with me if you’d like.

    It is so easy, in the rush of life, to pay little or no attention to our nutrition. Then our neglect comes back to bite us later. Keep up your good work of informing people of the necessity of good nutrition.

      Thank you Florence. Nutrition often does fall by the wayside when life gets in the way. Why does ou\r self-care become the first thing we don’t have time for??? Inquiring minds want to know.
