Nutrition can mean many things, but at The Healthy Zone, when we talk about nutrition, we mean one of these, the other or both: the act or process of nourishing or of being nourished; the process by which organisms take in and utilize food material. So, you ask, why should I care? Here’s why.
Nutrition: The Act or Process of Nourishing or of Being Nourished
Nutrition is all about having energy. It’s about sleeping better. It’s about being able to keep up with your life. Do you know what is going into your body? For example, are you taking in genetically modified foods with heavy amounts of pesticides, or are you eating organic foods? Are you eating fast foods or fresh foods with high nutritional values? At The Healthy Zone, we believe taking in pesticides and preservatives will increase the likelihood of disease and decrease the lifespan. We teach ways to avoid these substances and still enjoy eating. We also have researched supplements and nutrition programs designed to help you reach the ideal weight without sacrificing health.
We often advise clients to consider using a kit, the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge. You can feel safe using the products because, if you've read some of The Healthy Zone’s website, you already know that we are close to being fanatical about using safe and natural products. Beyond that, they must not produce any unwanted side effects. Additionally, you must like to use them, and they should not be so expensive that they interfere with the rest of your life. After all, the kits are part of your food budget, not your medical bill.
Nutrition: The Process by Which Organisms Take in and Utilize Food Material
This is the more metabolic definition of nutrition. Let’s say that in English: you’ve eaten it but is your digestive system breaking it down? Hint…if it’s still in your stomach after an hour, the answer is always no.
We all know that the metabolism is responsible for the rate at which we burn calories, fat and other sources of energy. We also know that enzymes are an important part in regulating metabolic function.
According to the Loomis Institute, “Enzyme nutrition is the art and science of using nutrition to maintain balance and health in the body. It works with the body's innate intelligence to bring the body to optimal health using whole foods that contain protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, rather than trying to manipulate it by using chemical compounds that produce side effects.” At The Healthy Zone, we use enzymes to help regulate the nutritional process. We recommend ordering the appropriate enzyme mix for meals.
At The Healthy Zone, we don’t just look at the weight you want to permanently release. We also focus on keeping all the muscle, losing the extra skin without surgery and being fit.
