Nutrition (Diet)

Today I’m talking about nutrition for Terminology Tuesday. I use nutrition and diet interchangeably. I don’t think of a diet as something I need to “go on” to lose or gain weight. It’s simply the food I eat. Nutrition is the same for me.

All foods have nutrients in them. Some foods are better for you than others, but that’s the topic of another video. The old phrase is true, “You are what you eat.” If you sit on the couch and eat a bunch of junk food, you’ll be carrying around a bunch of junk on your body. Conversely, if you eat good quality, minimally processed foods, and get regular exercise, you’ll look and feel much better.

We’ll get into all the details behind eating healthy in other videos. For right now just think of nutrition and diet as the foods you eat on a daily basis.

Have a great day!
