Nutrition | The Big Picture
Nutrition is the eighth guiding principle of living CREATION Healthy. This article is your introduction to Nutrition. At the end of this overview is a growing list of related wellness articles to keep you healthy from the inside out.

Nutrition is the fuel that drives the whole system. Take time to evaluate your food intake remembering that even small improvements, done regularly multiply the health benefits many times over. Research has consistently shown the importance of a good diet on your health, energy levels and longevity.

Enrich Your Eating Experience
Imagine being able to add healthy, quality-filled years to your life. Consider all the smiles you could share, the new friends you could make, the many lives you could touch. Added years would mean increased opportunities for your own life. Sound too good to be true? It doesn't have to be.

With all of the strides we've made in medical advances, it's easy to forget nutrition's significant impact on health. The surgeon general's report on nutrition reveals that eight out of the ten leading causes of death in the United States have a nutritional or alcohol-related component. So nutrition is absolutely vital for creating and sustaining good health.

Eat for Health
You are what you eat and what you eat affects your mental well-being. Researchers at Harvard University have discovered that you can adjust serotonin, a brain chemical linked with depression, by varying the amount of carbohydrates in your diet. Not only that, but when you get depressed the brain triggers a craving for the carbohydrates that are capable of restoring serotonin levels back to normal. In other words, food can affect your mood, and your mood can influence which foods you choose.
