Nutrition

"You've heard the term "nutrition" all your life. The food-fitness connection is what it's all about. In a nutshell, nutrition is how food nourishes your body. And being well-nourished depends on getting enough of the nutrients your body needs-but not too much.

Today's understanding of nutrition is based on years of scientific study. Interest in food and health actually has a long history and was even recorded by the ancient Greeks. But it wasn't until the 19th century that the mysteries of nutrition began to unfold. Since then, scientists have been able to answer many nutrition questions. And research continues as scientists explore emerging questions about food, nutrients, and their role in health.

Today's nutrition advice is supported by solid scientific evidence. So unlike the ancients, you have a valid basis for choosing food for health. It's up to you to apply nutrition principles and advice for your own well-being.

To make wise food choices, you need sound nutrition information."
