Why nutrient density?

Get more from less. More energy, more stamina, a brighter mental outlook. Nutrient-dense foods contain high amounts of vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats, and are relatively low in calories. Examples of nutrient-dense foods include vegetables and fruits, whole grains, seafood, lean meats, eggs, peas, beans, and nuts.

What is a nutrition lifestyle?

Nutrition lifestyles dictate the foods to include or exclude in your eating plan. For example, the Paleo lifestyle excludes grains, legumes and dairy; a vegan lifestyle excludes all animal products. Nutrition lifestyles are chosen based on your body’s unique needs and your personal beliefs. Nutrition lifestyles are healthiest when based on eating real, nutrient dense foods.
