So today were going to look at good food standards, the reason why we are cutting out the processed food and trying to stay as clean as possible.
What I want to try and achieve over the next few emails is for you guys to realise EVERYTHING starts with food, this whole lifestyle change is not just about loosing a few pounds. What you put in your body has so many effects on your daily operation as a human being its untrue. Moodswings, fatigue, generally feeling well, aches and pains, sleep pattern to name but a few.... EVERYTHING boils down to how you fuel your body.
So lets begin.
YOUR FOOD - what you choose to fuel that temple you live in! Whatever you decide to eat we need to start thinking about what the food contains and does the food meet standards it should to be allowed into your temple?! Girls think of it like men........... lagging in the height area, doesn't wash or brushes his teeth... hell no is he coming near me..... same with food! Shit show? not coming in
Your Food Should
1. Promote a healthy physcological response - for example that good feeling after you cooked yourself a really healthy dinner, full of vitamins and meets your required marcos, as apposed to the bloated depressive lul you put yourself in after a cheat.
2. Promote a healthy hormonal response - don't let it mess with your mothership, having a high carb or high sugar breakfast, causing your blood sugar levels to spike, leaving your body to deal with the massive hormonal crash after.
3. Support a healthy gut...... No one likes a farter.......... enough said
4.Support immune function and minimise immflamation, nutrient dense foods have so many different properties that help your body stay on top form, all the detox drinks.... tablets etc you can get... eat your greens simple.
5. Make sure your food contains your required Macronutrients, I harp on about these all the time GET YOUR FATS IN.... recap on nutrients follows.
Carbohydrates - 4Kcal Per Gram. Sugars/Starches and Dietary fibre
'I want to lose a stone, I am completely off Carbs' <------------ I want to kick these people in the head
Carbs are not bad, do not reading here and go grab a doorstop sandwich, hear me out. Our body needs a small amount of carbohydrate for brain function (more on this another day) Just as long as your putting them in, in good form and small amounts, there is no need to exceed 150g Carbs per day, unless you are trying to bulk etc. Protein - 4Kcal Per GramNecessary for building, repairing and maintaining muscles, connective tissue and ligamentsProtein is the building blocks of muscle. Looking to tone up, gain some muscle... no protein.... no results .. simple. Fats - 9Kcal Per GramFATS DO NOT MAKE YOU FAT.Fats we like - Saturated, Mono and Poly UnsaturatedFats we hate - Trans FatsFats allow you to absorb nutrients, it transports theses nutrients around the body and helps you maintain immune function. So todays lesson is, make sure all your meals are meeting these standards, not only to achieve the best results but also to have you feeling and looking your best inside and out. Much Love Linda xxxx
