How I Chose REAL Food
I've been interested in traditional food and nutrition since, October of 2008, when I read Nina Planck's book, Real Food. Previous to that, I was interested in healthy eating, cooking and nutrition, and completed my bachelors degrees in Health Education and Nutrition in 2007. I worked as a health educator, teaching the ways of the government mandated health policies aka "low-fat." Since these times, I've transitioned my life, and my training, into "politically incorrect" nutrition! The ways of real food, and traditional diets truly make sense- and I knew that this was the real way the human body was designed to be eating! I knew this because of my background in nutrition from college, that this makes sense scientifically- and I know based on my own experiences and health improvements from eating real food! You need FAT to absorb fat soluble vitamins and to absorb and utilize minerals! period! No science can refute this! If you cut fat out of your diet- you ARE malnourished! Vitamins and minerals are bound up in fats! If you take the fats out, then you take out the nutrients! I know I don't want "low quality" aka "low fat" foods, and you shouldn't either!
