  • What Direction is Your Food Taking You?

    Filed to Nutrition, Weight Loss and Healthy Eating

    If you read last week's blog, you know that we just began a summer series on Nutritional Transformation. This week, we are going to look at the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.). This will lay the ground work for looking at four templates on how to approach healthy eating.

    Does food really "evolve"?

    Much of today's scientific literature, including the field of nutrition, assumes that humans have been around for 50,000 years or longer.

  • What is Dietary Inflammation?

    Filed to Nutrition, Weight Loss and Healthy Eating

    Inflammation plays a vital role in the human body's immune response - without it, we would not be able to heal. According to Medline Plus, the body's inflammatory response occurs when tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat or any other cause. When your cells are in distress, they release chemicals to alert the immune system, which sends its first responders (inflammatory cells) to isolate the foreign substance or heal the tissue. As these events unfold, blood vessels leak fluid into the site of the injury, causing the telltale swelling, redness and pain.
