I want to review a question that I get asked a lot: Is it true that a whole foods, plant-based diet is best for the human body? The answer for most of us is absolutely YES! So does this mean that eating meat, dairy, or processed foods will hurt you or make you sick? Listen, these foods are demonized because many chronic diseases are partly caused by eating too much of these foods. Not SOME of these foods, TOO MUCH of them. So that leaves us with the question- how much is too much? To be honest, I don’t know. Because I don’t know you! I don’t know what your life is like, how you eat, how you feel, how much you move, or what your labs look like. The answer is different for each of us and is dependent on so many factors, such as your current health status, lifestyle, preferences, genetics, and activity level, to name a few. My point here is that nutrition isn’t so black and white (like my cute top ) and treating it as such misses the point completely. The most important thing is knowing yourself, your limits, your needs, and what makes sense for you right now. Build your diet off that. Build your diet off YOU.
