Understand Diet and Take Ownership!
Coach Emma wrote this the other day and a light bulb instantly went off! Nutrition and Diet is simplified in JUST 25 words! Hurray!
Allow me the opportunity to explain why Nutrition/Diet in 25 words!
- Eat Meats & Veggies
- Nuts & Seeds
- Some Fruit* (we’ll talk why)
- Little Starch
- No Sugar
Keep intake levels that will support exercise but NOT body fat.
That’s it? YUP. For diet and nutrition this is the mantra.
Let’s discuss with AWESOME pictures!
Diet/Nutrition #1 – Eat Meats & Veggies
Guess what doesn’t spike Insulin?
Meat and Veggies!
We use the Plate Method extensively when it comes to your diet!
- 1/4 of the plate = MEAT (preferably from a LEAN source!)
- 1/2 of the plate = Veggies (green ALL the colors of the rainbow!)
- 75% of the meal is DONE. Easy Peasy. Lemon. Squeezy!
What do I cook my MEAT and EGGS in?
Butter is a wonderful option, as it has one of the lowest scores on the insulin index (2%! – THAT’s AWESOME) and is an Animal product….like BACON.
It’s a scientific fact that everything tastes better with bacon!
Diet/Nutrition #2 – Nuts & Seeds
These are AWESOME and HEALTHY ways to sprinkle on salads, vegetables and even meat!
They are full of SUPER HEALTHY monounsaturated fat and the thing to be aware is the amount of polyunsaturated fat!
Here are some awesome things to add as a little goes a LONG ways!
- Macadamia Nuts
- Ground Flaxseeds
- Chia Seeds
Diet/Nutrition #3 – Some Fruit
Fruit is AWESOME and full of HEALTHY amazingness!
However, if we are focused on BODY COMPOSITION then we must watch the sugar intake!
Read the labels! That’s where, legally, the information on food products must be listed!
The lower the total sugar the more accelerated the fat loss!
Berries, strawberries and the likes can make wonderful additions, just like seeds, in meals and salads in your day and diet!
Diet/Nutrition #4 – Little Starch
The remaining 25% of your plate is dedicated to starch!
It keeps you satisfied longer and the body is able to literally use it at will due to literally what makes a starch a starch.
Try to make your starch full of NUTRITION:
Trader Joes offers really convenient, and cute, small sweet potatoes that are nutrition and absolutely delicious!
Make an effort to make meals that you actually want to eat!
Diet/Nutrition #5 – NO SUGAR
Sorry, I know it’s delicious. It also is a voluntary means to premature DEATH. That’s not an exaggerated statement but a very underestimated fact not factoid.
Is that deliciousness worth the awareness that sugar 100% instills Chronic Disease?
- Heart Conditions
- Literally most PREVENTABLE chronic conditions
Maintain Discipline!!! No slacking!
There is NO SUCH THING AS ESSENTIAL CARBOHYDRATES.
Get SERIOUS about your diet. STOP GUESSING.
The US Government recommends that total recommended sugar be:
- 25 TOTAL grams for Women
- 38 TOTAL grams for Men
The average? 82 grams!!!!!! That’s not good!
What’s the problem with sugar? Insulin!!!!!
No matter WHAT, when you eat food the insulin goes up; however, we can control that with what and when we eat…let’s look at some pictures to really explain the long-term story of how and why chronic diseases that are preventable run unchecked, currently, in the 21st century.
Typical ‘American Diet’ 5 Meals
This should scare you straight!
RED IS DEAD. Get your day in order and realize that this is not, in any way whatsoever, ‘ok’.
Typical ‘American Diet’ 3 Meals
This is better than the first picture but just not good enough.
The body simply does not have enough time to recover between meals.
What WE Recommend, Implement and Perform
Through our nutrition program we EDUCATE you how, why, what and when to eat!
Our graph is actually better than this because we utilize snacks to bring the RED down to a nice even and manageable level and keep that green fat mobilization doing it’s thing.
So, the question is….
