What to eat?


One of the most frequent questions I get asked as a Wellness Consultant is, “What should I eat?”. Unfortunately that question is both simple and complex. The best answer is a quote form author Michael Pollan: “Eat food, mostly plants, not too much”. That is great advice but mot very practical in the long run. The reasons this is such a complicated issue are many. First is nutrition is a young science, second very people understand nutrition so they are easily misled, third companies trying to sell products will advertise misleading claims, and many people with little or no education want to give advice for what worked for them. I am starting a series of posts to help cut through the clutter. I am not trying to sell anything and I will try to back up claims with scientific studies and give the sources of my information. I hope it will help you. Please direct questions or comments to the Mitchell Wellness facebook page or send me an email.
