A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
A fortification is only as strong as its weakest entry point.
Likewise, we can only be as healthy as our most unhealthy habit.
All too often, people fail to recognize their weakest link in their health (whether short-term or long-term) – the link of nutrition.
We can only perform as well as the raw materials that we intake to fuel our bodies and build our tissues. If we want the performance that comes from Ding Dongs and Twinkies, then we need to eat Ding Dongs and Twinkies. Our bodies are not capable of creating good nutrients from bad nutrients. However, if we want the performance of efficient enzyme activity, powerful antioxidants, and vibrant energy, we need to consume raw vegetables and fruits, non-processed foods, organic / natural meats, and foods without preservatives and dyes.
The weakest link in our health is nutrition. We can choose to fortify it or keep it weak. The choice, however, has lasting consequences.
