The Overlapping Circles of Life
I came across an illustration of the The Overlapping Circles of Health in a book I have been reading called The Protein Power Life Plan.
I recreated it so I could share it with you here.
The authors, who are medical doctors, suggest that the cornerstone of a healthy life is good nutrition, and that without it, not of the other facets can reach their full potential.
I have been thinking about this a lot over the past several months... experiementing with different types of foods and I agree with them. I know that when I eat what I need and in the amounts I need, I feel good and have the energy to take on all of the activities I want… I sleep well, and my brain functions well.
When I don’t eat properly for me, I am cranky and not able to concentrate or perform physically and I don’t sleep well or feel well at all.
What do you think? Do you think what you eat is an important base for the rest of your life?
