Love Whole9. Love Dallas and Melissa. Can’t wait for their new book It Starts With Food: Discover the Whole30 and Change Your Life in Unexpected Ways.
Today they posted a link to a blog entry I’d read before, but it was a great reminder to read The Whole9 Health Equation again. (Reminder that there are 9 dimensions of optimum health according to Whole9)
The Health Balance equation builds on these elements.
This valuable bit of perspective reminds us that while nutrition (diet if you must call it that) is the foundation for our health, that we make other daily choices that factor in (heavily, in fact) to our results.
The concept of “balance” is not only the ideal of sensing an evenness, but Dallas and Melissa draw the parallel to a bank account in this case. Our choices are credits and debits to this balance. For example, good nutrition can be a credit but lack of sleep can be a significant debit. Therefore, the big picture goes beyond nutrition to include other factors as well.
They caution against a nutrition solution to a lifestyle problem. Diets don’t do it. We have to make lifestyle choices that are sustainable. Using the health balance equation can help us crank up our awareness and see the big health picture.
