The truth about nutritarian eating is that it nourishes the body with micronutrients, vitamins, minerals, protein, antioxidants, and phytonutrients using relatively few calories. Relatively refers to the macronutrient diet of the past 100 years. Macronutrient eating provides vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins, and starches through the eating of meats, chicken, fish, vegetables, and starchy vegetables like potatoes. However, three-quarters of this diet contains very few micronutrients, and many calories.
All my life I have counted calories but I have stopped since changing to a nutritarian lifestyle. It is hard to overeat on fruits, vegetables, greens, whole grains, and beans. When I learned of this nutritarian diet, I knew it was the true way to eat. I don’t always stick to it like I should but for the most part, my body wants to eat this food, I hunger for it, and after I eat, I feel wonderful.
Lots of people will tell you that freedom is being able to choose, but Jesus said that the truth will set us free. Eating processed SAD food weighs us down, creates health problems, and makes us sluggish. So do spiritual rules and regulations requiring prayer times, observation of holy days, and restrictions on certain foods. These activities alone cannot bring us closer to God. Only Jesus allows us in His presence.
