The Main Obstacle to Leading a Healthy Lifestyle? Time Management

We at Healthy Gourmet have talked with nutritionists, dietitians, clients, family and friends about leading a healthy lifestyle and the main obstacles that get in the way. The most common obstacle that everyone cites? Time management.

Somehow, the most important thing in maintaining a healthy body, a healthy nutritional diet, falls by the wayside in our busy days. The morning rush to get to work on time takes precedence over making sure you get a healthy breakfast (especially in Houston).

What is Nutrition Response Testing?

We believe a healthy diet is key to living a healthy life (I know… profound, right?), but if everyone’s bodies are slightly different, how do we know what a healthy diet means to us, personally? This is the goal of Nutrition Response Testing, a non-invasive system for analyzing the body and determining the root cause of maladies within it. Included under the NRT umbrella is muscle testing, acupuncture point testing, reflex, and chiropractic testing to determine toxicities, allergies, and other harmful things in the body. It is a growing practice, often used in holistic approaches to medicine, yet still considered somewhat controversial within the US medical community.Continue reading
