There is a lot of confusion about nutrition. People are uncertain what to eat, how to make the best food choices, which nutrition experts (or would-be experts) to trust, and whether today's conventional wisdom will be tomorrow's exposed myth. Are carbs good or bad? Is meat healthy or harmful? Are supplements necessary for optimal health or a waste of money? Health-conscious Americans are full of such questions.
Here's another question: Why is there so much confusion about nutrition in the first place? There is no single answer to this question. In part it's the result of the sheer abundance of nutrition information we're bombarded with daily. The media have realized that—due largely to the tremendous weight problem our society is struggling with—Americans have a large appetite (so to speak) for nutrition information. Essentially, they've figured out that nutrition stories attract viewers, listeners, and readers, who in turn attract advertisers. So they gorge us with an overwhelming number of nutrition stories, often with little regard for the quality of information they provide.
Another cause of the widespread confusion about nutrition is the fact that many of the most influential sources of nutrition information—certain diet gurus, some supplement makers—are more interested in profit than truth. And let's be honest: scientists aren't perfect either. New nutrition research often contradicts older research, resulting in altered dietary recommendations.
Yet there are plenty of basic truths of human nutrition that are widely accepted by the most informed nutrition experts. In addition, there are some fundamental principles of human nutrition—such as the principle that the more natural the diet is, the better—that we can also use to effectively guide our eating choices. The purpose of Nutrition Information is to clear away the myths and misinformation and give you the raw truth about how to eat.
Why provide such information on a website such as this one? Because Permalean products were formulated on the basis of the real truth about what is good for the human body. The better you understand the most scientifically validated facts and principles of diet, the more you'll appreciate the role Permalean can play in helping you optimize your diet to maximize your health.
So pick a topic and start your journey toward health empowerment through nutritional knowledge. And come back often to continue the journey. You won't regret the time you spend here!
