Our philosophyNovember 13, 2020 2020-11-13 21:13
Our nutritional and eating habits come as a result of the interaction of various factors, thus from our family up to the broader social and natural surroundings of the individual.
We systematically consume our food, not because of their nutritional value, but because of its stimulating and addictive nature.
Every time we look into the reasons why we choose to consume a specific kind of food, we should keep in mind that this choice comes as a result of multiple factors.
Our ability to choose our food is not innate.
Therefore we have to be careful in choosing our food so that we can avoid being exposed to dangerous and harmful toxins whilst at the same time we can obtain only the necessary nutritional food.
The ability to choose our food is a learning process. It can be made easier through a certain biologically defined process.
Completing a nutritional program or a diet by choosing the food correctly, we activate a management and compliance mechanism which is based on scientific experience and not on an innate mechanism based on recognizing sensor properties of the food.
The secret is entering the logic of quality nutrition and decide to change by following the right nutritional principles, to understand how our body perceives our needs and provide it only with nutritional food.
Our health is one of the most important goods and nutrition is a modifiable factor related to it. Therefore, proper food choices as well as maintaining a healthy body weight are a “shield” against chronic diseases while offering wellness. In contrast, less appropriate food choices and increased body weight contribute to the development of chronic diseases. We believe that proper education leads to the improvement of the person’s relationship with food. Also, our philosophy is based on the fact that we need not only the will to achieve a goal, but also an appropriate method. We urge our clients to see the effort to achieve their goal as an educational process. For this reason, we believe that improvement comes not only through effort but also through proper guidance. We also accept that any effort will undoubtedly lead or has already led to mistakes, but which are an integral part of the educational process.
Our scientific knowledge, our experience as well as our respect for the individuality and preferences of the individual, are the necessary ingredients for a creative collaboration, which has as its ultimate goal the achievement of the client’s goal.
We are here to listen to the client’s questions and provide solutions through a high level of dietary advice, based on modern literature (evidence based dietetics). This way we will enjoy its maximum performance, while stimulating the mood, physical and mental health. This is exactly our philosophy at Compass Nutrition!!
