Q&A If you could do one thing to improve your health, what would it be?
Focus on what you put into your body. I call this food shaping. Food shaping is what I call knowing how much of certain foods to eat, (portion control) what time to eat them, and what type…There are 2 types of foods. Food that fuels your body and food that breaks your body.
Imagine your body as highly priced automobile, like a Bugati Veyron (my favourite). You put low grade fuel; you get low grade performance which can result in breakdown.
Food for fuel directly affects your body’s metabolism. Most people that have been on low grade foods, don’t notice the continued negative effects such as lethargy, brain fog, stress, high blood pressure, high sugar, high fat cravings and less than optimum hormone production. They don’t know what’s it like to have that high end metabolism. Little by little it becomes worse, until you have a habituated lifestyle.
Start eating whole natural foods, which are unprocessed, and contain macro and micro nutrients that your body needs to run on and repair itself.
Healthy food doesn’t have to taste like cardboard. Be creative.
Evaluate what’s in your fridge and cupboards. Most people know which foods are good and which are bad. Take the bad foods and remove them from your home. If you need extra help, consult with a dietitian.
None of us want to wake up one morning with cancer, or diabetes, or heart
disease. Now – not all disease can be averted – but ultimately us
all would like to avoid as many health setbacks as we can.
