Conscious nutrition – that’s why it’s important
To eat (more) consciously – is something that many people aim for. But what defines a conscious and healthy diet? First of all: It is not enough to abstain from certain foods. The way you eat is almost as important as what you eat.
A healthy and conscious diet is characterised above all by the fact that it continuously provides the body with all the necessary nutrients.It supports the body’s functions and thus your performance. If you want to eat consciously, you must first know what your body needs in particular. The scientists at BIOMES will provide you with nutritional recommendations tailored to your needs as part of an intestinal analysis.
But because food is not only about nutrition, but also about pleasure and emotional satisfaction, you should also look at your eating habits. When, where and how much do you eat and how do you eat your meals? Many eating habits are formed in childhood. As adults, we do not automatically eat what is good for us.
