“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.”

What do you really know about nutrition?


Most people think they know what healthy nutrition is yet after my deeper inquiry it turns out they were all wrong. Others are simply confused. It is mostly because the nutrition information in the media has been so politicized, most research studies funded by the food and drug industry, and consequently, the results of the research twisted and presented in a way that plays to the above industries’ agendas. This sad reality has created the ever increasing rates of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and other related problems. We are overweight, our kids are overweight and things seem to only be getting worse.

Many outspoken researchers are finally starting to speak up. Change is gradually starting to happen but it is still slow, very slow. We have been brainwashed to think that saturated fat is the source of all evil, that we don’t really need much protein, that our diets should be based on huge amounts of grains, that vegetable oils are good for us, and so on, and so on. The examples are endless…..and the public is more frustrated and confused than ever.

So you think you’re eating healthy.

      Or are you?
 


 
Do you:
  • Eat a lot of grains like pasta, rice,
    breads, pastries, cookies and the like?
  • Avoid animal fats and saturated fats
    of any kind?
  • Think that tropical oils are bad?
  • Eat a lot of vegetable oils because you think they are heart-healthy?
  • Eat nuts, seeds, avocados and vegetable oils as your only sources of fat?
  • Try to follow a low fat diet because you think it will help you lose weight?
  • Drink a lot of fruit juices because you think they are full of vitamins?
  • Eat huge amounts of fruit because you were told they are good for you?
  • Think that crispy cereal with non-fat milk is a health food?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions and are having problems with your weight OR your health, you need nutrition re-education.

At Fitness Science Inc. we believe you are unique. Your biochemistry is unique to you and you alone. Your genes, your heritage, the climate where you live, as well as your current age, activity levels, health and degree of stress, will predetermine how your body will react to certain kinds and ratios of foods. All of us have very unique nutritional needs. The assessments we utilize help to determine what kind of “diet” your body will respond to the best, considering all the above factors and your current state of health. Although not the “be all end all” method we use to help you achieve your desired goals, it is extremely helpful in designing a program that will make you feel your very best.

Could this be you?

Simple mistakes while trying to diet can often have far reaching negative consequences. Starving or not eating enough causes loss of muscle tissue. Your muscle is a much more metabolically active tissue than fat, which means if you have less of it you will burn fewer calories. Due to inadequate calorie intake your body goes into starvation, or in other words, survival mode. This, in turn, slows down your metabolism. Now you are burning fewer calories per day than before. Your initial weight loss slows down drastically or stops altogether. As if this wasn’t enough, you walk around tired, lethargic and grumpy. You’re always hungry and can’t stop thinking about food. You get frustrated and resume your normal eating patterns. Now your body perceives the old “normal” amount of calories as excess and you gain the weight right back. And that’s not even mentioning the hormonal imbalances that have been caused by this kind of dieting, which will only make weight loss even harder in the future.

The goal of a proper weight loss program should be to spare muscle but burn off body fat. Unfortunately, many weight loss programs result in both muscle and water loss but not really much fat. You end up being a thin fat person. Not healthy, and not pretty either.

As our client, you will not be a slave to calorie counting and constant measuring nor will you have to walk around hungry, grumpy, light-headed and depressed. Food is pleasure and we want you to enjoy it. Food is nourishment and we want you to learn to appreciate what it can do for your body. We want you to have a happy and healthy relationship with food and we are here to help you along the way.
