Regardless of what we eat, our diets are composed primarily of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. These three nutrients, given to us by God, are called macronutrients because we eat them in relatively large amounts compared to the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). In this episode, I will explain proteins, fats, and carbohydrates and their various roles in the body. I will also discuss the importance of water, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytochemicals.
Many of today’s most serious deseases and disorders could be avoided just by changing our lifestyle and especially our nutrition. The modern American diet is high in calories, yet low in nutrients. Our poor diets are the reason we have many of today’s leading causes of death and disease, including heart disease, cancer, stroke, obesity and diabetes.
Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the link between poor diet and disease and that improving their diets and nutrition can profoundly improve their health. The goal of this program is to help educate people on the effects which their diets have on their lives and to make meaningful suggestions for a healthier, happier, disease-free life. As SOLDIERS OF CHRIST, MADE TO THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF GOD, we have a moral responsibility to take care of God’s gift to us (our bodies). We can help accomplish this goal through better nutrition.
