NO CALORIE COUNTING
Some foods are addictive, others booster, some are fattening and the others healing. They’re not just all about calories, much more information.
On the other hand your microbiome (bacteria family living in your gut!) is a huge determining factor as to how many calories you will absorb from your food. The best way to create a healthy and diverse microbiome is to eat a plant-based, whole-food diet. WELCOME TO MY LIFE!
When you count calories and only eat foods like snack packs, diet soda, and fat free yogurt that lower in calories, but they make you crave more food and can be extremely harmful on your body and microbiome.
Getting enough of healthy fatty acids like the ones found in avocado, cold-pressed olive oil, nuts and seeds help to nourish our body and our fattiest organ – our brain!
I wanna give the word to the expert;
‘Dr Mark Hyman, M.D.’
Functional Medicine Doctor, Medical Dir. of the Cleveland Clinic and doctor to the Clintons.
Fat is one of the body’s most basic building blocks. The average person is made up of between 15 and 30 percent fat! Yet for decades, we’ve unfairly demonized dietary fat, diligently followed a low-fat diet that almost always equates into a high-sugar and high-refined carb diet that contributes to insulin resistance, obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and numerous other problems.
What we need are amino acids, not the proteins themselves. As for the amount of protein we eat, it is not practical or very accurate to measure that on a daily basis. According to the World Health Organization, 0.5 g/kg is adequate for good health. First you will first check what your body needs and everything is under control, then you can switch your taking protein from animal protein to plant protein. If you’re pregnant, wanna pregnant; you have a child or any other health issue, you have to change your diet under dietitian and doctor controls.
Cause there’s still no proof and any research show that kids growth can be possible with only plant based eating. If you’re an adult and don’t have any health issues, then when you change your diet to take more plant-based less animal protein, you’ll see the life is more beautiful;)
Every color reflects a different set of phytonutrients, so by eating the rainbow, you’re ensuring you’re getting all different types. For instance, red plants like tomatoes, watermelon and strawberries tend to contain phytonutrients like lycopene, Vitamin C and anthocyanin. Yellow produce has beta carotene, Vitamin A and alpha carotene. And green plants contain phytonutrients like chlorophyll, iron, magnesium and Vitamin K. Eating the rainbow is a beautiful, visual reminder that food is medicine!
LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
They say the gut is the second brain, but it’s really the first one!
Your body knows when it needs more or less of nutrients like how it knows when it’s thirsty or sleepy. YOU KNOW IT! Your body has a ability to maintain balance when it’s damaged by environmental and nutritional toxins; High fructose syrup is an ingredient that can massively impact your body’s to keep your insulin levels stable in negative way.
We’re either feeding it information that can promote healing or information that can cause disease and promote imbalances. What you have to do is to listen your gut! You all need to strive for the quality of what you’re eating.
