Optimal Nutrition & Real Food

Updated: Aug 30, 2022

You may or may not know this by now, but my background is in holistic nutrition. And as such, I’ve received quite a few questions on the best way to eat.

But with SO MUCH information out there, there seems to be a swamp of confusion that leaves people more in the weeds than in optimal health and wellness. So, if I were to boil everything that I learned in grad school about optimal nutrition down to just one small concept it would be: eat real food and don’t pay attention to processed, low-fat, keto, paleo, etc. claims about premade food (that is, unless you’re making a strict attempt at a therapeutic diet for therapeutic results).
