Our Nutrition And Fitness Program
Most people love the idea of losing weight, being stronger, sleeping better, having more energy, improving bloodwork, and being in a better mood. The problem is most people simply don’t know where to start.
With our Nutrition and Fitness program, we dispel many common myths in nutrition and fitness so your employees can act on accurate, evidence-based information to help them become the best versions of themselves, both in and out of the workplace.
Additionally, good nutrition and physical fitness are essential for promoting optimal brain health, improved gastroenterological function, and physical and mental health. Poor nutrition and lack of physical activity can significantly affect physical and psychological health. That’s why we offer detailed programming and educational resources to help employees improve their nutrition and become more physically fit. We recognize the importance of a healthy diet for the well-being of the body and mind.
The Mind-body Connection
An unhealthy diet can lead to many serious physical health complications, including obesity, heart disease, and some cancers. Heart disease is a collection of diseases that cause cardiovascular problems and is the leading cause of death in the U.S. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that eating a healthy diet, exercising, and avoiding tobacco use can prevent 80% of premature heart disease, 80% of type 2 diabetes cases, and 40% of cancers.
Exercise and a healthy diet are proven to reduce the risk of obesity and strengthen muscle mass and bones. Eating healthy and staying active can also improve memory, enhance energy throughout the day, give a sense of calmness, and boost the immune system. Good nutrition can also reduce sleep problems and strengthen self-esteem, confidence, and productivity.
The gastrointestinal tract works closely with the brain and can also contribute to mood and mental health. Some people feel intestinal pain or uneasiness during times of stress. Psychology often works with physical factors that can cause discomfort among other intestinal problems.
During life, psychosocial factors, such as stressful life events and psychological distress, can influence digestive function and the physiology of the gut and symptoms. This means stress, anxiety, depression, or other mental health disorders can affect the gastrointestinal tract’s movement and contractions. (World Journal of Gastroenterology, NIH)
