Importance of Variety of Diet

Do you remember when you were a kid and you had a favorite food that you ate all the time? Quite possibly you were a picky eater and didn’t allow for much variety of diet into your meal schedules. Today, your variety of diet is likely much different than when you were a child. Now, think about your current favorite, or “go-to” food. Imagine if you had it every meal for the rest of your life. Do you still think that after one or several months a year, you would 

  1. still love that same food as much?
  2. get sick of it?

If you answered “get sick of it”, the body is the same way, and would tend to agree with you. Much like our tastes change from a child to an adult, and from time to time is very similar to how the body operates with regards to the food we eat. 

To understand how a variety of diet factors into your optimal health via nutritional wellness, we need to understand a key concept about the body and how it extracts the nutrients it needs from the food you eat.
