Nutrition 101: The Basics
We've read countless blogs and health-related websites that spout erroneous nutrition information. This is plain wrong and we don't want you to be misinformed any longer. Oftentimes, we see "nutritionists" spouting out the word carbohydtrates only when referring to bread, pastas, and grains...and then they usually say something like, "Don't Eat Carbs" or "Carbohydrates Are Bad For You," both of which are blatant lies.
To correct this problem, we want to give you the basic definitions in nutrition so you can make informed, educated decisions for your life. You can also weed out the good sites from the ones just trying to make a buck off you.

And yes, while we do promote the occasional scoop of protein powder, we definitely want to make it clear to our community that vitamins can be consumed through healthy, whole food options. Of course, times exist when a supplement is easier, or necessary, but today is not the day for that conversation.
