In many areas of our life, we realize that it takes the proper ingredients in the proper proportions to achieve success. Everyone who has ever tried making a cake from scratch knows that if you deviate very far from a cake recipe, you won’t end up with a cake. The same is true for our bodies, if we deprive it of certain elements we can see it and feel it. Our bodies are pretty forgiving of neglect. However, if you hope to attain the maximum efficiency, not to mention looking and feeling your best, you must give your body the ingredients it requires.
