What should I eat?
This question may be the most important question in nutrition.
The reason is pure and simple; there is no greater influence on your health than the food you eat.
Food is the most powerful drug on Earth. You eat it several times a day, every day of your life. The body uses the compounds in food as the fuel for life.
I use the Metabolic Typing Plan with all my clients.
It’s unique to each individual and is based on the rate at which nutrients are converted to energy within all of your body’s 100 trillion cells.
The influence of nutrients and foods on each Metabolic Type is what makes nutrition so confusing.
Without Metabolic Typing it’s a matter of a roll of the dice.
This is the reason that “one man’s food is another man’s poison” because what can heal one person can worsen the same condition in another person.
Once you fill out a questionnaire and figure out your Metabolic Type the programme is easy to follow.
Just stick to your recommended food list as closely as you can.
You don’t need to weigh your foods, measure out serving sizes or count calories.
Eat according to your appetite and at least three meals a day.
Snack if you need to and always try to eat before you get hungry to stabilize your blood sugar.
Also eat some protein with each food intake.
Metabolic Types – Protein, Carb and Mixed.
Some people are fast oxidizers and tend to burn carbs too quickly. A high carb diet only worsens the problem but increased amounts of healthy fats and proteins can help balance the chemistry and energy production.
Slow oxidizers are overly reliant on fat metabolism and do better on a higher carb intake with less proteins and healthy fats in their diet.
You can be a combination of both and be able to eat the same foods as the Protein and Carb Types. The best of both worlds.
Both kinds of foods and the proportions of the proteins, fats and carbs are very different for each Metabolic Type.
They require different ‘fuels’ and different ‘fuel mixes’ in order to convert their nutrients into energy.
This allows you to maximize your energy, develop peak performance, control your appetite and be as trim as you can be.
