Rather than just eat for calories, eat for the purpose to optimise your Hormonal Response

First up....everyone metabolises foods differently so everyone has a completely different hormonal effect from the different types of foods eaten.

We hear about the Mediterranean Diet and its benefits and the amazing results its achieved throughout Europe and others who have adopted this way of eating. But its higher in Fat right?

How can a diet higher in Fat, lots of Olive Oil and Avocado for example and a high percentage of these people have low cholesterol, low blood pressure and keep a natural body weight?

How come someone on a Paleo Diet maintains weight but another person gains weight? Why does someone eat a Paleo Diet and their health improves and then you hear of others adopting the same diet and their health decline?

What about a Raw Food Vegetarian Diet? Why do people improve their health and wellbeing through eating Raw and then you hear stories of others will get Diabetes?

What about a Keto Diet, Low Carb Diet, Atkins, Ketosis or Ketogenic Diet? Why do some people have results and others don't have sustainable results?

'EVERYONE HAS A DIFFERENT HORMONAL RESPONSE FROM THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FOODS WE EAT'

Truth is, all these diets above have their benefits and their drawbacks and you know why? Because depending on the individual adopting the diet means they will have a different result than another person. This is why we get so many different views and results on all the diets out there, some good and some bad.

Once an individual consumes a food type, in a certain amount at a particular time in relation to their previous meal they will get an individual hormonal effect from that meal eaten. See the 3 main factors at play and that's not even getting into DNA, Methylation, Vitamin B12 absorption, the current state of health, fitness and activity level, state of mind, stress levels, emotional state and a thousand plus other factors...see how everyone will get a certain result on an individual basis.

'IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WHERE YOU COME FROM, YOUR DIET NEEDS TO BE ADAPTED TO YOU'

A lot of diets are marketed as a 'blanket solve' or 'blanket solution' for the population but it just cannot work that way. There is no single diet that's right for everyone. The Food Types, Food Amounts and your optimum Meal Timing will always be different to someone else, meaning you'll have a completely different diet than anyone else on the planet.

3 main things affect how you feel after each meal:

  1. Food Types
  2. Food Amounts
  3. Meal Timing

It is absolutely key to focus on these 3 things and once you become more aware of how you feel after every meal you can begin to fine-tune these 3 things.

A diet right for you is a diet that achieves and,

  • maintains a healthy natural body weight
  • lose weight (body fat)
  • maintain or build lean muscle
  • maintain bone density
  • increase mental clarity
  • balance your blood sugar levels
  • sufficient amount of Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat
  • sufficient amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants
  • creates sustainable results
  • eliminates cravings
  • improves recovery
  • increases energy levels
  • reduces stress
  • increases the quality of your emotions

If your diet isn't doing all the above, then you really have not found a diet right for you as yet, but you will in time as long as you become aware of how you feel after the meals you eat and focus on those 3 main points. Food Types, Food Amounts, Meal Timing.

Let's face it, we have all been in a situation where we wanted to lose weight. Maybe in even in a position right now where we want to lose weight fast, so we have been looking everywhere for some weight loss tips or the best weight loss program.

The best thing to do for weight loss is the below;

  1. Stick to clean whole foods
  2. Focus on your Protein to Carbohydrate Ratio
  3. Include all 3 Macronutrients into every meal (Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats)
  4. Don't be afraid to add Fat into your diet. Fat doesn't make you Fat
  5. Sufficient Water Intake

Eat Clean and your body changes, your mind thinks better, you handle stress and challenges better and are more driven and motivated as your energy levels have increased along with your mental clarity. You now begin to look at other areas of your life and how you can enhance them.

Share your experience with changes in your diet, I would love to hear!

Don’t Forget to share!

Eat, Think & Live Clean.
