How Your Diet Affects Your Health
What you put into your body can have a huge impact on your overall well-being. If you do not practice proper nutrition, you are likely going to see that in your hair, skin, nails, and teeth. You may have dry skin, dull hair, weak nails, and tooth decay if you do not eat properly.
Lack of nutrition can also cause issues beyond the superficial. What you eat affects your organ health. You may be at risk for heart problems, cholesterol issues, obesity, bone density concerns, and so much more.
There is also a risk to your reproductive health if you are not eating properly. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are often related to health problems.
Many of these issues can be improved or eradicated when you are conscious of making healthy food choices.
Improve Your Health with Proper Nutrition
If you have wanted to improve your health and weight, creating a nutrition plan is a great way to start. You do not have to go through this by yourself. You can meet with our board-certified family nurse practitioner for weight management counseling.
We can help you better understand what foods are of nutritional value to you and which ones are not. This can help you meet your weight and health goals.
Do not hesitate to reach out to get a free consultation with us right away.
Are Fad Diets Proper Nutrition?
Some fad diets include the south beach diet, the Zone diet, the Mediterranean diet, etc. You may wonder which ones are worth trying and which ones are a waste of time.
Essentially any diet that has you making huge changes to your diet with a ton of restrictions right off the bat is going to be a red flag. Humans are creatures of habit. Your body is used to eating the way you eat right now. If you try the Keto diet, for instance, you are going to be cutting back on a macronutrient that you likely eat a lot of.
Small changes can make a big difference and can be more sustainable. Most of these fad diets put an emphasis on making healthy choices in regard to portions, healthy fats, and good carbs.
Beware of any diet that is intended to reset your metabolism. And unless you are ordered by a doctor to cut out one of the three major macronutrients (carbs, fats, or protein), you should avoid those types of diets as well.
Most people who jump into a fad diet will do it for a short amount of time, lose weight, and then fall back into old patterns because these diets can be so restrictive. It is important to make the right choices for your nutrition plans so you can sustain these choices long term.
