Diet vs Nutrition | What’s The Difference?
It was really surprising to me that I easily found quite a bit of information in all my resources on nutrition. There is quite an abundance of good solid info on nutrition.
Nutrition Defined: the study of foods, their nutrients and other chemical components, their actions and interactions in the body, and their influence on health and disease.
Nutrients: substances obtained from food and used in the body to promote growth, maintenance, and repair.
The 6 Classes of Nutrients are:
Yet when I went to look for the definition of Diet it was not so simple. There were pages of info on the many, many different kinds of diets however no definition on simply what a diet is. So I went to Wikipedia and found this: In nutrition, diet is the sum of food consumed by a person or other organism.
This may be why we are so confused about what foods to consume for great nutrition? The diet vs nutrition question is out of whack! Way too many people are focused on diet and not in a good way rather than on looking at our food intake from a nutrition viewpoint.
My feelings are Real Organic Foods, cooked in our own kitchen are the only choice for your best life. Organic fruits and vegetables, locally grown when possible. Protein sources that are raised naturally in the field as mother nature intended. Grass fed and finished beef, chicken grown outside, wild seafood ect.
Diet vs Nutrition does not need to be confusing!
Enjoy real organic foods for your best life!
It seems to me that the issue around diet vs nutrition is that most individuals today do not cook in their own homes! Most eat a quick meal, and not real foods. The easiest way to remedy this is to begin learning how to cook by picking 3 recipes and make them until your skills are good at those 3 recipes, then add 3 more.
