Next to water and oxygen, proper nutrients are the most vital need of the cells to keep the body in a healthy condition or to reverse degenerative diseases. To provide optimal nutrition, the body needs optimum fuel. The optimum diet is that which God (the Creator of man) gave to mankind in the beginning, which can be found in Gen.1:29 and Gen.3:18. It consists of fruit, vegetables, grains, and nuts.
However, in order to obtain proper nutrition, it’s not only important to consider what you eat, but also when you eat, how you eat, and how the food is prepared.
