MISSION STATEMENT: LEANBEAN
Our bodies are not prepared for today’s evolutionary feast and sloth processes. Today and tomorrows society is a place where food is abundant and that eating purely for hunger is a rarity rather than a given.
SEDUCTIVE ADVERTISEMENT, READY MEALS, LARGE PORTION SIZES AND CONFUSION AROUND FOOD LABELS
are at the forefront for blame, whilst we add to the burden by
SITTING AT DESKS, LONG WORKING HOURS, SITTING WATCHING TV FOR ENDLESS HOURS, SAT AT COMPUTER SCREENS UNTIL OUR EYES ARE SQUARE OR EVEN SAT BEHIND THE STEERING WHEEL INSTEAD OF A 10 MINUTE WALK.
We gain weight by putting in more calories that we burn. We are faced with an environment full of food… a very different story to our hunter gather ancestors. We can altered our drive to eat mechanisms so that they are now in overdrive and don’t stop even when we are full.
Small subtle changes to our lifestyle could be enough to help control our weight and tip the balance in favour. A healthy balance balanced diet, with regular exercise will help boost our mood, reduce stress improve our nutritional status and help reduce the risk of developing long term problems such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and cancer.
Knowledge is therefore power. With knowledge we can eat to promote health in a healthy and sustainable (yet enjoyable) manor. There are a lot of fake promises, quick fix, fad diets out there in the market, all of which focus on calorie deficits (eating less) to loose weight rather than lifestyle changes which are the ultimate mode to maintain a healthy weight.
Here at LeanBeanNutrition, I hope to empower (and inspire) you with the knowledge to adapt a healthy diet, to make food colourful, nutrient dense and most importantly mouth wateringly delicious. Healthy food is far from boring.
