Did you know that what (and how much) you eat can have a major impact, not just on your waistline, but also on your physical function, comfort, and well-being? Here at Aaaah…Wellness, “eating for health” is more than just a saying with Mesa Nutritional Counseling. Our Mesa chiropractors offer Mesa Nutritional Counseling that can help you change your entire relationship with food so you can achieve and maintain a healthier life, one bite at a time.
The Value of Nutrition vs. Dieting
Some people equate nutrition with diet, but these terms are actually describing different things. Nutrition involves providing the body with the specific raw materials (nutrients) it needs to sustain its countless daily functions; diet refers to the daily selection of foods you consume, regardless of whether those foods contain the necessary nutrients for health. Good nutrition can have profound benefits on your wellness, including:
Proper nutrition requires a healthy diet. You can eat for health by choosing antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains over a diet of fatty, highly-processed foods. These food choices also help fight or prevent obesity — a major factor in many systemic diseases as well as premature joint wear and joint pain. While starvation diets and other dangerous fad diets may shed pounds, they won’t give your body what it needs to be healthy. They’re also not sustainable, meaning that the weight will simply go back on again.
