Why is Someone Hungry? - Duke's Materia Tonica January 1, 2019 11:12

Hunger is a normal feeling and a natural state of the body. When someone is hungry their body needs the overall combined nutrition and various important nutrients and constituents found in food so their body works. The more nutrients someone eats, as part of balanced diet with complete meals, the less hunger they will experience.


Why is Someone Overweight? - Duke's Materia Tonica January 1, 2019 11:11 2 Comments

Someone is overweight because their body is lacking nutrition and requires additional nutrients from food to maintain a healthy weight and perform. Being hungry and eating food with little nutrient content, such as empty calories, like sugar and junk or fast food, does not promote healthy weight and performance. Eating a complete diet of nutrient-dense foods, such as vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, and dairy, with additional supplements, promotes healthy weight and performance.

Food is medicine to assist in healing the body.
