A calorie may be a calorie if we’re simply trying to survive another day.


⚠️But if we want optimal health, the type of calorie matters. A twinkie is not the same nutrition as steak.


💡Even if we should “live a little” and be okay with sugar, we are replacing nutrient-dense foods for nutrient-poor foods. It’s not just that sugar is addictive and nutrient-poor, it replaces nutrient-dense foods.


🦠And if you have gut imbalances, you have a higher risk of not absorbing nutrients. So each bite’s nutrient-density matters (timing and frequency, too).


👦🏻When parents ask if my children are on a medical dietary plan as they mostly eat meat, the short answer is no.


❓Why is eating mostly meat not the norm?


🥩If we know all food breaks down into raw materials to either support or harm the body, why wouldn’t I go for the most nutrient-dense and readily available nutrients for the body?


💣And for a growing body, why don’t we feed mostly meat-based? Kids have smaller stomachs, so it makes logical sense to feed them the most nutrient-rich foods to get the biggest bang for your buck.


⚖️The truth is every bite of food is a friend or a foe. The more foes we have, eventually the body will breakdown. The more friends we have, the more we can have optimal health and healing. ❤️‍🩹
