Food as Medicine: The Essence of Proper Nutrition For Your Body with Dr. Paul Goodman
 

“An apple a day keeps the doctors away.”

This is a common proverb that each one of us is familiar with. In fact, it is something we often say to remind ourselves that keeping our bodies healthy can offer us several benefits like keeping us from various diseases and illnesses.

The human body requires an adequate amount of nutrients to function properly and maintain good health. These nutrients are chemical substances found in foods that are categorized as proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. We need all of these to let our bodies function properly and have all the energy we need for the day.

Living a healthy lifestyle is the best investment we can make. It may sound daunting to exercise daily or keep a balanced diet, but investing in our health is something our future selves will thank us for. 

But everything takes patience, dedication, and time. You can take things slowly, and alter your lifestyle one step at a time. Consult your doctor, research, and be consistent to keep your body healthy and physically fit.

Hear more in this episode with Dr. Paul Goodman, the Chief Medical Officer of Fresh N’ Lean, about the best way to get proper nutrition and how food can be your medicine. Tune in!
