Nutrition is King

Posted in Fitness, Food, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins

Letting nutrition be king over just a craving is essential to maintaining optimal health and wellness. In America taste is all the rage while in some unfortunate places many people lack even having enough food, let alone the right foods. While America is rich in options we are poor with our selection. I hope to convince you that choosing nutrition will be a difficult discipline at first but you will learn to love how you feel and possibly change the scale if you do it. In the last blog I was sharing some of the value of B vitamins. I’d like to add to that in this blog. In the B vitamin list I’m including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins B6, B12 and folate as well as pantothenate, para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), inositol, biotin and choline = B complex. Our physical and mental wellness are dependent on these resources. Our skin, sleep, heart, eyes, energy levels, a balanced mental state, and help reducing stress can all be effected by your uptake of B vitamins. White flour, in so many of our food selections, is devoid of so many of the Bs that are in the flour in its’ whole state. I consistently recommend that sprouted grain is an optimal choice if you are going to eat bread. After that a quality whole grain, organic if possible. Don’t take up your calorie space with things your body can’t use when it really needs the proper amount of nutrients for optimizing your health and vitality. Our focus shouldn’t be low calories as much as it should be good calories.  I tell my kids in Super Sport class that we need a lot of the good stuff and just a little bit of the not so good stuff.  Learn it, live it and teach it to your kids.


Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
