Lifestyle Change Is a Process
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” said Benjamin Franklin.
Education and awareness are your best defense to prevent nutrition-related problems (including inadequate intake, eating disorders, and obesity) in order to live a healthy life.
Unfortunately, getting the right information about nutrition is a daunting task.. The average person is bombarded routinely with a new diet book, TV ads, testimonials from friends about a new miracle product, or an endorsement of a new discovery by a celebrity or pseudo expert.
Start Fresh with Zizania
At Zizania you can rest assured that the information we give you is based on the latest scientific research, is practical, and applicable. We don’t hype any product or food with supposed magical powers, but often you will find the results magical.
We start with the basics: food and water. You need water to stay hydrated and you need the right food to stay healthy. For the rest, we work with you to establish a meal plan with the right amount of proteins, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins to keep you energetic and build a strong immune system.
We work with you, often in person, to teach you everything you need to know from meal composition to the nutrient content of foods. You also will “unlearn” some common myths about food and nutrition that we have all been exposed to over the years.
