Foods That Sustain

Posted by on

The benefits to eating a whole foods-based diet are far reaching. One of the main advantages is sustainability: maintaining at an effective level or rate. If you’ve every dieted for a period of time, either focusing on low carbohydrate or low fat consumption, you know how difficult it can be to maintain this type of eating. The types of food consumed on these diets don’t nutritionally sustain our bodies at an effective level.

When our bodies aren’t nutritionally sustained, we can suffer from low energy levels, irritability, decreased hormonal function, headaches, increased cravings; disrupted sleep cycles, decreased strength and cardio function, mind fog and more.

It’s no surprise then that this type of nutrition can halt one’s progress.

Finding foods that sustain our body’s functions effectively will give us the best chance to be optimally well – nutritionally, physically and mentally.
