Mindful Food Tracking

Mindful Food Tracking

I explain that tracking intake has a lot more to do with the big picture of nutrition. You learn not only what your macronutrients (protein, fats, and carbohydrates) and calories look like, but also your micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that literally run the show, affecting how you feel and what you crave.

Magnificent Magnesium

Magnesium

Magnesium is involved in more than 300 types of enzyme-driven reactions, including the production of ATP (energy) through the electron transport chain.
