A New Look at Nutrition

I am an LPN who ate my way back to health. Read my continuing story about researching a different kind of nutrition. I used food as my medicine.

A New Look at Nutrition

By Joan McDaniel                

Three Types of Nutrients in the Human Diet

Back to basics for a moment, to make sure we are in the same ball park or at the same ball game. Many items contained in this post have been discussed before, but I feel that they are all spread out in different places.  So let us review basic nutrient, basic nutrition types and how the body digests them to produce healthy energy.

I am not recommending a diet nor do I count calories or recommend a daily calorie intake.  I do pass on daily intake suggestions that have been made mostly by Dr. Mercola.  Each person needs to work out their own dietary intake and to understand their own body. An attempt to understand the known principles of the body’s complex digestive system should help.  Note the body’s digestive system is extremely complex and I haven’t found anyone who can fully explain it, at least to where I can understand it.  For I believe -- If something is knowable, then it has a simple explanation.  I can only conclude no one completely understand it.  That includes all the Food Police and Nanny’s in all the countries around the world including the USDA, World Health Organization (WHO), Mayor  Bloomberg, and other meddlers.

The basic principles presented should provide an understanding that should allow people to make their own decisions and get the most energy from their food intake. 

Nutrition

The story of food is the story of energy, whether we are looking at the process by which solar energy provides nutrients for the body, or how that energy, in the form of fossil fuels, is used to bring energy, in the form of food, to our tables.

Nutritional Intake

The three major types of nutrients in the human diet are;

Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats.

They provide the body with burnable energy in the form of a nutrient.
