The importance of balanced nutrition cannot be understated. No one can outrun a poor diet, and when we use the word “diet,” we are talking about the way a person eats. You can exercise for an hour a day to build muscle and burn calories, but the real hard work happens in the other 23 hours of the day with what we choose to feed ourselves.
Fueling the body with a balanced diet can help manage hunger, cravings, and energy levels throughout the day. Good nutrition can also help ward off disease. When we consider chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, high blood pressure, some forms of cancer and type 2 diabetes can be managed with the proper diet, it makes sense for everyone to sit with a Nutritionist and do a “checkup” on their eating habits to see how they can maximize their intake to stay healthy.
There is so much misinformation out there regarding nutrition. Eastpointe provides a variety of nutrition services to help members navigate their diet and help prevent or fight diseases.
