Many people believe that being overweight is simply an issue of eating too much and not going to the gym!
On the other hand, many people believe that if you are not overweight then you must already be healthy and well (or at the very least have a good understanding of nutrition and health). The truth can be quite far from this though.
Deciding to take charge of your nutrition and weight will decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes, joint disease, hormone irregularities and many more chronic diseases that have the ability to reduce your enjoyment of life.
Human physiology is quite complex, with factors such as hormones, toxins and stress affecting your metabolism and standing in the way of achieving your desired health and nutrition goals.
