Today we’re talking about the importance of nutrition, which is the single most important factor in helping you optimize your weight and improve overall health and wellbeing. When it comes to losing weight, diet and nutrition is 70% of the equation, while exercise is 30% of the equation. You may already know this, but some weight loss strategies in the past have focused on the wrong things. It was
thought that the reason people accumulate fat in their bodies was because of too much fat in their diets which is wrong.
As it turns out, the reason people accumulate fat in their bodies is because of too much carbohydrates and sugar intake in their diets.
The emphasis now is to limit carbohydrates. Examples of low-carb diets include the Atkins diet, South Beach diet, Paleo diet, Hunter-Gatherier diet – they all describe the same thing, which is high protein and moderate to extreme reduction of carbohydrate levels.
