I have long noted that many of the foods that make me feel and perform my best are considered by most to be unhealthy and even cause disease. Beef, whole eggs, butter and cream are staples in my diet and, at 42, I feel better than ever and I effortlessly maintain 10% body fat as well. I remember back in the early nineties when I was just getting into bodybuilding. Fat was the enemy! I was really watching my fat intake and eating nothing but chicken and turkey breast, pasta or rice. I was eating veggies too at least. I was gaining muscle, which was great, but I was not getting “cut” like I wanted. If anything the opposite was happening! My energy levels were up and down too. Eventually through much trial and error I dropped the egg whites, white meat and pasta for whole eggs, beef, salmon and brown rice. The difference was noticeable immediately! Energy all day and my body tightened up quick! The more protein and less carbohydrates I ate the better I felt. I discovered I am a protein type! Protein types convert fuel to energy quickly and run more efficiently on animal protein and fats. Makes sense really since I am of Nordic descent. Carbohydrate types are just the opposite and run well on lighter meats, grains, legumes, fruits and veggies; more of a Mediterranean or even vegetarian diet. And, yes, some people are right in between. Seems crazy huh? Our ancestors are from all over the world, especially in this country, so it make perfect sense actually. There should be at least 3 food pyramids!
These days, in addition to exercise, I guide my clients by helping them to discover their true blueprint or Nutritional Type. The “one size fits all diet” just will never work. Dr. Mercola sums it up best so read on and discover your Nutritional Type.
One of the dangers of living in a breakneck culture is the need for speed. The fast pace of life keeps your mind very busy, and it’s easy to ignore your body when it’s trying to tell you something. Many of you have long lost the ability to connect the dots of how you feel with regard to the foods you eat.
Many choose to place convenience before health when it comes to food selection, and simply fail to appreciate the concept of food as medicine — and how to give your body the type of healthy fuel it was designed to thrive on. Don’t get me wrong, I am not blaming you, as I have been there and done that. I have journeyed for many years through my own process of discovery, to learn how to connect the dots between the foods I eat and the way I feel after eating them.
What I learned is that there is no perfect diet for everyone. You were created with unique genetics and experiences that will ultimately dictate what the best foods are for you to eat.
The practical challenge of course is to discover what those foods are. Do you really want to be wasting your time, money and energy choosing foods that are “supposed” to be good for you but in reality are making you sick?
Wouldn’t it be nice if someone designed a nutritional plan specifically for your body?For your personal needs?
