When you’re eating properly balanced meals, it’s not just about maintaining a healthy weight and keeping the body running strong. Eating also factors into your mood, energy levels, sleep patterns and daily productivity. More importantly, it impacts your lifespan. By learning how to eat right and how food interacts with the body’s systems, you can learn how to actually add years onto your life.

And it all begins with food education. That means making better choices because you’re both capable and informed—given the tools and the knowledge—which is a cause that’s is near and dear to us at your local Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym. We champion for both children and adults to gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the role of food in terms of how we look and feel.

Eating right means:

  • What we eat
  • When we eat it
  • How we eat it
  • How it’s processed in our digestive systems
  • How nutrition from that food is stored
  • The positive and negative effects of certain food choices

Health factors related to poor eating habits include:

  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular risks
  • High cholesterol
  • Vitamin deficiency
  • Decreased energy
  • Depression
  • Muscle and bone weakness
  • Compromised immune system
