I have chosen to develop an essay on the importance and effectiveness of proper nutrition and its relation to academic performance. After reading You are What You Eat, I could only think about myself as a student and the vast differences in my life when I follow good nutrition routines on a regular basis compared to unhealthy nutritional patterns. My passion in writing this essay comes from my own experiences although I am certain I may highlight many others’ experiences as well. The stories in the chapter one cluster have also inspired me to explore this topic and perhaps get people to really think about what we are doing to our bodies as we engulf foods of nutritional value and the differ.

The purpose of this essay is to inform parents and students of the importance of proper nutrition and how it relates to academic performance, and healthy lifestyles. I intend to share a wealth of knowledge in this essay that may hopefully inspire many people to evaluate why we eat, what we eat, and hopefully to encourage others into taking a closer look in developing healthier lifestyles.
