Ever since reading the book Sugar Blues over 30 years ago, and experiencing for myself the dramatic difference simple dietary changes can make, I’ve made the link between nutrition and health my obsessive focus. Food is by far the biggest single chemical we put into our bodies each day—literally the building block of our bodies. Our diet has a surprisingly strong influence on how we look, feel, and act each day, in addition to influencing our long term health. Every day, science is validating the link between health and diet. Improving nutrition is, in my view, the single most important field of endeavor for improving the human condition.
Eating is about the most natural thing we do, after breathing. How have people come to see it as being so complicated? Surely, science and common sense must have some absolute lessons about how to eat to keep our bodies nourished and at a healthy weight.
