Some foods that nutritionists think are just fine I believe are toxic to the human body. These include grains such as wheat (unsprouted and unfermented especially), omega-6 vegetable oils (canola oil, corn oil, soy oil, vegetable oil), sugar, soy products and dairy.
This isn’t to say that everyone who eats these foods will immediately run into problems. But over and over again in the literature I see confirmed the fact that most people optimise their health by eliminating toxic foods. Eating them once in a great while is certainly okay. But that is just like drinking alcohol once in a while is okay, or skipping sleep once in a while is okay. It’s not optimal, but it can be tolerated, at least by many individuals.What foods remains for me?
Organic grass-fed animal products
Vegetables of all sorts
Fruits in moderation
Ghee and/or butter
Coconut and coconut oil
Olive oilIn general, we at Be Fit Hub believe moderate protein, somewhat higher fat and a little bit lower carbohydrate intake is optimal, though honestly this recommendation varies far and wide based on individual needs and preferences. Animal products are important. Quality is important. Being adapted to burning fat is important.
All that said, there are three things more important than eating the proper foods. They are:
1) Sleep. 7 hours each night, at minimum.
2) Reduce stress.
3) Love yourself.
So as of Monday 14 January 2013 George and I begin Phase 1 – Detox…
George and myself will be posting my before and after measurements and photos every 3 weeks, my weekly diary, photos of my pantry and meals to inspire you all to broaden your awareness of eating for your body type to maximise your cellular health and manage your weight for life.
Health is achieved holistically. Your mind cannot heal without your body, and your body cannot heal without your mind. Nurture yourself.
