Nutrition has played a significant role in your life, even from before your birth, although you may not have always been aware of it. Nutrition will continue to affect you in major ways, depending on the food you select, your inherited strengths and weakness (your genes) and what you do and the way you live (your lifestyle).

Every day, several times a day, you make food choices that influence your body’s health for better or for worse. Each day’s choices may benefit or harm ur health only a little, but when these choices are repeated over years and decades, the affects (rewards or consequences) can become major and pronounced.

We select foods for a variety of reasons. Whatever these reasons may be, food choices combined with our genes influence our health. Single food selections neither make nor break a diet’s healthfulness, it is the whole diet, the balance of foods selected and the timing of eating that makes an important difference to your health.

Healthful nutrition choices can bring health benefits in your daily life and later on. Equally, careless choices and habits often established from an early age can be major contributors to the most prevalent chronic diseases of later life: heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Of course, some people unfortunately become ill no matter what food choices they make, and while others live long healthy lives despite making poor food choices. Nonetheless, for most people, the food choices we make each and every day, and the way these choices interact with our inherited strengths and weaknesses (our genes) benefit or impair our bodies and our health in proportion to the wisdom of our choices…..

Although most people probably realize that their food habits and lifestyle affect their health, they often choose foods for other reasons. After all, food brings to the table a variety of factors and sensations: traditions, pleasure and enjoyment, associations as well as nourishment. Most people decide what to eat, when to eat and even whether to eat in highly personal ways, often based on behavioural, social motives, lifestyles (work) or incomplete nutrition knowledge rather than on awareness of nutrition’s importance to health.

The challenge, then is to combine favourite foods and the fun and enjoyment associated with eating along with your individual genetic makeup and lifestyle with a nutritionally balanced and healthful diet.
A diet that gives your cells and therefore your body what it needs to thrive that looks and tastes good and is healthy and can realistically fit into ur life…
