People are bombarded by nutrition messages everyday, many people have no idea what and who to believe, especially, what to eat. Your diet has a direct impact on many aspects of your life such as your energy levels, physical appearance, body fat percentage, disease risk, cognitive function, vision, exercise performance, and your happiness… just to name a few.
With my articles in PhillyHealthWatch, I hope to educate you about what the real nutrition recommendations are based on science, so that you can have a go-to source for sound information and guidelines from a reputable source. I will also provide you with tools, tips, and recipes so that you are able to easily incorporate healthy foods into your life and reach your health goals. The primary purpose of my articles are to make you more knowledgeable about nutrition and to become more aware of the foods you are eating. As a result, I hope that you will begin to improve your dietary (and other health) habits so that you can live the healthiest and happiest life possible!
