An overwhelming amount of scientific evidence demonstrates the powerful effects of nutrition to protect against disease or, conversely, to create disease. It is becoming more and more obvious that understanding the benefits of a high-nutrient diet is the means to recovering our health and healthcare systems.
Superior nutrition defines a diet-style that maximizes the beneficial health promoting effects of eating a variety of micronutrient-rich natural foods. To assure superior nutrition, individuals must understand their own unique nutritional needs. From there the quality of an individual’s diet must be increased accordingly to experience the most profound therapeutic effects for preventing, treating and reversing disease.
Once the focus is on consuming more micronutrient-rich natural foods, the other important nutritional benefits automatically follow: lower sodium, reduced calories, high fiber, high volume of food, satiety, a low glycemic index, and a high phytochemical index. As this shift takes place, people are able to win back and take control of their health destiny.
People who follow the Nutritarian Diet:
- understand that food has powerful disease–protecting and therapeutic effects
- seek to consume a broad array of micronutrients via their food choices
- strive for superior nutrition
