As the sun is shining and we shed our heavy, bulky winter clothing, we start to think about slimming down our “heavy, bulky” winter shape. We buy new exercise routines, exercise equipment, exercise clothing, and then, we turn to the diet books.
Ah yes, if only we could magically transform our bodies with the power of the latest diet, health trend, or superfood!
Nutrition is more than eating right—it's also making sure you're eating enough of the right things and not too much of the wrong ones. It's about keeping up with your body's needs on a daily basis, and making sure you don't let yourself get run down by stress or lack of sleep. And it's about knowing when something's off, like when your skin starts breaking out or your stomach feels bloated after eating a certain food—and then figuring out what might be causing those symptoms so that you can fix them!
