Los Angeles, CA, March 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Have we all been thinking about dieting incorrectly for decades? Chef Shedric Wallace says yes in his newly released book, The MicroNutrient Solution. Unlike many, Chef Shedric offers his new concept free from his Web site, http://healthfulchef.com
Whether you are a stay-at-home mom or corporate CEO, chances are there are more things on your to-do list than you have time to get to each day. Chef Shedric believes that life’s constant pressures can cause us to easily drift into unhealthy territory, but he also offers an easy fix.
In The MicroNutrient Solution, Chef Shedric argues that there are core habits that would keep us healthy, but in our hectic lives we often overlook taking care of ourselves. When modern demands cause us to neglect those critical health habits, we can become dull, ineffective, and even ill. He uses this analogy to make his point:
“Most of us, like expert lumber jacks, are busy chopping trees all day. Our trees are the multitude of tasks that fill our days. Because there are more things to get done than we have time for each day; we just keep chopping from the time we wake up until we go to bed. We seldom take time to sharpen our axes. Unfortunately, a dull axe can make us less effective and ultimately wear us out physically,” said Chef Shedric. “The typical American diet and eating habits are our dull axes.”
According to Chef Shedric, who is a certified nutrition and wellness coach, our basic routines are the things that determine our health and vitality.
The MicroNutrient Solution develops the core habits to effectively sharpen our axes. It’s essentially a “Lifestyle Makeover” that we can use anytime we find ourselves drifting into unhealthy behaviors like skipping meals, consuming too much overly processed food, or failing to properly de-stress.
Chef Shedric’s book points out that in a perfect world with less stress, fewer environmental pollutants and more nutrient dense food choices; staying healthy and feeling sharp would be much less of a challenge. Unfortunately, in our real world we need to make the time to have our own lifestyle makeover from time to time.
