March Madness…for Nutrition!

While the basketball lovers of the world are occupied with bracketing, the rest of us out there might be interested to know that it's National Nutrition Month!

As a health coach this is a great time to remind people to clean up there eating. Why do you ask? Well, because poor eating habits create problems such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. Most of us know this, but it's good to be reminded that there is a reason for the behavior. 

I also like to remind my clients that what works for one person, may not work for another. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics makes recommendations based on the average person, but we are each created differently and with different dispositions. Dairy, meat and gluten all effect people in wildly different ways. 

If you find that you are experiences help changes in any way, I challenge you to look to your diet to see if there might be an underlying culprit. Often allergies that are subtle can manifest into significant autoimmune diseases, for example. If you find yourself feeling stuck, unsure, or needing support I'd be happy to help you in your quest.

Happy eating, as you spring into this new season of abundance.
