The Revolution Corporate Wellness approach to nutrition and fitness is educational, engaging, and grounded in evidence-based science.
Hello! I'm Jamie, I grew up on a Century Farm in "the-middle-of-nowhere" Northern Minnesota. My family and I ate exceptionally nutritious meals. We raised/hunted our own meats and grew vegetables. We were always outdoors and very active.
As I entered adulthood, I became lost in the chaos of marketing buzz words and the confusion of contradictory findings with each "new scientific study." The extent of nutritional training I had received was a worksheet on the food pyramid in grade school. I was clueless.
I thought fat made me fat. I used sugar and caffeine for energy. I focused on calories. Worse yet, my motivating factor was to look good. I wasn't driven by longevity and vitality. I was onboard the ever popular "be bikini ready by..." bus.
Over the next 10 years, I was creep conditioned into believing my lack of energy and focus, skin issues, bloating, and constipation were normal. I looked "in shape" and felt "fine" so I was healthy, right?
I believe most of us are somewhere in this boat. Of course we want to look good, but we also want to be healthy. We just don't know what to believe anymore. Fat-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, free-range, farm fresh, fair trade, organic, all natural, sustainable, and on and on...
"Science" can prove anything! It simply depends on who's funding the research. There is an incredible amount of money to be made and everyone wants a piece of the pie. The fitness industry is also grabbing for their take.
