Love this infographic!
There is so so so much more to the way we use our food, "control" our weight and our overall health than the old simple Calories In = Calories Out.
I know I've said it before but I have seen many people with a nutritionally top notch diet, who exercise well, great sleep, low stress but still aren't reaching optimal health goals. Why..... so many reasons, toxic burden including copper overload, adrenal insufficiency, gut dysbiosis, inflammation resulting from food sensitivities or asymptomatic/symptomatic autoimmunity.
Many of us (I am the first to admit I am one) are "damaged" whether it be from following current recommended dietary guidelines or modern diet, lots of antibiotics, prescription medication, or even something as remote as our grandparents/great grandparents having an illness which has changed the balance and composition of the bugs in our gut. So whatever the reason it is realistic to expect the journey of healing to be exactly that - a journey. So much waffle exists around the eat less, exercise more and live happily ever after propaganda.
I say it over and over, we need to focus on stripping back to a diet removing inflammatory components (refined carbohydrates, sugars, high inflammatory "vegetable" oils and other foods which may be inflammatory to the individual), and looking to repair or support underlying isssues.
