The #1 Diet Everyone Should Follow (This Will Surprise You!)


In a world where dietary trends come and go, embracing the idea of bio-individuality offers a refreshing perspective—one rooted in self-awareness, empowerment, and sustainable health.

At Food Matters, we believe that every individual is unique, and so are their nutritional needs. Our approach to healthy living goes beyond the one-size-fits-all mentality. Instead, we advocate for understanding and embracing bio-individuality—the concept that each person has specific nutritional requirements based on their genetics, metabolism, environment, ethnicity, ailments, sex, and lifestyle. Simply put, bio-individuality acknowledges that what works for one person may not work for another.

Understanding your bio-individuality involves paying attention to your body's signals and responses to different foods. It's about tuning in to how certain foods make you feel—energized, bloated, satisfied, or sluggish. By becoming attuned to these cues, you can tailor your diet to support your unique health goals and preferences. This teaches us the importance of being flexible and being willing to shift as our needs may shift.

But bio-individuality extends beyond just what you eat—it also encompasses how you eat. Factors such as meal timing, portion sizes, cooking methods, and even the emotional aspect of eating play a role in your overall well-being.

For example, someone who lives in a cold climate may lean into more warming and grounding foods, with more healthy fats and proteins, while someone who lives in a warm climate will often eat lighter foods like smoothies and salads. Or, one person may struggle with digestive issues, while someone else may struggle with blood sugar issues. Therefore, what they eat to help heal their bodies and cater to these issues will vary. There is no single healthy choice. 

We advocate for a whole-food, nutrient-dense approach to eating that can be customized to accommodate individual needs. Whether you're following a vegetarian, paleo, ketogenic, or Mediterranean-inspired diet, the key is to prioritize real, unprocessed foods that nourish your body from the inside out.

Let's celebrate the beautiful diversity of our bodies and embrace the power of bio-individuality for a healthier, happier you.

We created the Food As Medicine Nutrition Program to alleviate the overwhelm and confusion surrounding nutrition and encourage our community to embrace their bio-individuality (because there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition).
