Keep in mind that getting healthy isn’t only about gaining muscle and losing weight, it’s also about proper nutrition. Cookie cutter approaches to nutrition aren’t the key to vibrant health and longevity. Your health must be approached according to a bio-individualistic perspective. This means addressing your individual needs biologically, emotionally, and spiritually, etc. What works for the next person may not be the best fit for you, and vice-versa.
Fad “diets” lead to temporary weight loss by restricting calories and typically leading to losses in both body fat and lean body mass. The loss of lean body mass also leads to a lowered metabolism making it more likely for you to store additional fat, instead of burning existing fat.
In addition to a well-rounded fitness regimen, it is vital to address the factors associated with your weight gain. In this context, it would be helpful to understand the complexities of primary food nutrition. Primary food refers to categories of our life that have an influence on our wellbeing; categories such as relationships, careers, spirituality, and physical activity, as well as several sub-categories. When something is lacking in our Primary Nutrition we substitute with Secondary Nutrition (food). When all of our primary food needs are met and balanced for our good, then the food we put into our mouth becomes secondary and we enjoy it more, and benefit from its nutrients on a much deeper level.
