The World Of Nutrition

I used to teach Nutrition classes at a college level and I would go over the Canada Food Guide but I always “qualified” it as mostly based on politics and not on health. It seemed whichever food industry was lobbying at the time got the most support. I would show Food Guides from other countries to show that there were many different opinions on what constituted a healthy diet. In North America, the focus was first always on meat and dairy. Then in the ’80’s fat and red meat were considered bad and grains and carbohydrates became the focus. We now know that carbs are just as bad for gaining weight as fat is.

 

The new Canadian Food Guide, which is supposed to come out in 2018, will look very different from its predecessors. For the first time since it’s inception 75 years ago, the guide will focus on consuming nutrient-dense foods, focus more on plant-based foods and regular intake of water. It will also recommend avoiding highly processed or prepared foods high in sodium, sugars or saturated fats and also avoiding beverages high in sugar.

 

Hallelujah! This is the kind of nutritional advice I have been “preaching” for years! Plant-based diets and eating WHOLE FOODS (not processed). Eating organic, sourcing out nutrient dense Super Foods, drinking water when you feel hungry are examples of ways to take healthy eating to the next level. It is easier than ever to buy organic and get more information on plant-based diets. Yes, there is going to be hype around some of this information but it is still a better choice than eating highly processed low nutrition food. I look forward to sharing some of my insights and experiences in the world of nutrition in the months to come.
