Eat Only Nutrient Dense Whole Foods
It is imperative for optimal health that you eat REAL food and nutrient-dense real whole foods.
When you eat processed and or ultra-processed foods, it will take far more calories to obtain 100% of your nutrients in a day, or you may never reach this goal.
There are also studies that have shown that an ultra-processed, nutrient-poor diet, is linked to changes in behavior and even acts of violence.
