Default So, Are You a Nutritarian?

Simply put, a nutritarian is a person who strives for more micronutrients per calorie in their diet-style. A nutritarian understands that food has powerful disease-protecting and therapeutic effects and seeks to consume a broad array of micronutrients via their food choices. It is not sufficient to merely avoid fats, consume foods with a low glycemic index, lower the intake of animal products, or eat a diet of mostly raw foods. A truly healthy diet must be micronutrient rich and the micronutrient richness must be adjusted to meet individual needs. The foods with the highest micronutrient per calorie scores are green vegetables, colorful vegetables, and fresh fruits. For optimal health and to combat disease, it is necessary to consume enough of these foods that deliver the highest concentration of nutrients.

ummm...wow, maybe! On sparkpeople I try to make sure I am getting enough protein, fat and carbs but I also track other things to make sure I am not eating too much cholestrol, sodium or saturated fats. I also track vitamins and minerals and things like calcium and potassium to try to make sure I am eating healthy foods and not just junk.
I find it hard to hit those goals though, but when I do I am so happy!
