Nutrition is vital to all of us, it is what fuels our bodies and keeps us healthy. Without proper nutrients in our body, it starts to break down and we get ill, or lack energy or gain weight.
The single biggest increase in the last 50 years has been obesity in pretty much everyone, why? Well because we have turned to processed foods for quick sugary or fatty hits to feed our cravings, to be honest, it is not your fault as we are hard-wired to want 5 tastes – bitterness, sourness, sweetness, saltiness and the recently discovered umami.
We have constantly been told by advertisements and media to eat the food when what we really need to do is listen to our own bodies and not false advertising. If we constantly have bad sugary or fatty foods thrown in our face we become hooked, and once you're hooked it is hard to get out the cycle you're in but never impossible.
With correct advice and support, you can switch bad food for good food and still keep those tastes buds and cravings happy.
