How to be Your Own Nutritionist

nutrition

Take a peek around the web or your nearest book store. You’ll see the world is more often than not preoccupied with with dieting in pursuit of the perfect figure. Yet if statistics are true, we’re not just tipping the scales, many of us are breaking them. It has taken most of us years of restrictions and meal replacements to figure it out: diets don’t work.

From carb cutting to calorie counting, a Pandora’s Box awaits those who still dare to follow the latest diet craze. Yet achieving and maintaining your ideal figure is actually more simple than what we’ve been lead to believe -and it comes with a bonus: vibrant health.

There is one major requirement that’s needed on this path to ultimate wellness and the body most of us have dreamed of: taking full responsibility. Taking charge and becoming our own nutritionist and not relying on big business to deliver a magic bullet that is usually nothing more than body-disruptive chemicals.

Perhaps it’s an assumption to say most of us were taught the same stuff in school, none of which covered off real nutrition and how to actually apply it. Yet, the lesson of nutrition is one of the most important life lessons we can ever learn. We also weren’t taught that nourishing ourselves is actually fun and can lead us to a full, love-fueled life. A nourished, healthy body results in clear thinking, more energy and, for many, a channel to the divine. No pill could ever compete with that.

Enter Lars Gustafsson: author, speaker, life and nutrition guide. Born in India to Canadian parents, he grew up living an authentic mix of tribal and western life. This upbringing, he says, created a balance between the scientific passion of the west and the ancient wisdom of the Far East.

For 23 years, Lars has explored nutrition, fitness and healthy lifestyles. As founder of the BodyMind Institute, a global enlightened school of learning, he teaches that nutrition is so much more than just the food we eat. It’s the total way we nourish our mind and body.

Over these years I found that I needed to personally experience something in order to accept it as fact. In the end I have found that it is only through personal experience in the application of any information can you make your own informed decisions. Your own level of personal truth will grow according to your willingness to experience more.

In 2003, Lars introduced The BodyMind Nutrition Certification online programs to meet an emerging demand for true to life systems, formulas and programs, creating the opportunity for people everywhere to discover and pass on a nutrition and lifestyle process that creates a personal discovery of balance in body, mind and spirit.

“I believe in the scientific method, that there are natural laws that govern our physical universe – yet in these 23 years I have often found the unexplainable happening all around me,” Lars says. “These have created questions which led me to find hard scientific data that hasn’t found it’s way into the mass media or awareness of the masses.

In the end I have found that it is only through personal experience in the application of any information can you make your own informed decisions. Your own level of personal truth will grow according to your willingness to experience more.

Lars has teamed up with raw food nutritionist David Wolfe to deliver a program in raw food nutrition, a course that shares more than 15 years of David’s sought-after knowledge. With this course and other programs including 90 Day BodyMind Renewal, Conscious Conception and Pregnancy, Cleansing, Herbology and Sports Nutrition, the BodyMind Institute is changing the way we look at and learn about real nutrition.

As a student of the BodyMind Raw Nutrition, the 90 Day BodyMind Renewal and the Nutrition I certifications, I chatted to Lars about how the online courses are bringing real nutrition to people at their own pace, in their own time. What I also discovered is a man with a passion that goes beyond simply developing courses. Lars Gustafsson is making a difference, one person at a time through life-enhancing education that literally changes lives.

“Let’s bring about a stunning shift to our planet together,” Lars says.
