I am writing as fast as I can...be gentle!! :)
So I learned how to choose the great super foods to reprogram your genes for fat loss and better health? Drum roll please! How do we learn what to choose and accomplish this quickly? It comes down to three words my friends 1-Whole 2-Real 3-Fresh. Or call your great grandma she did it! It all comes down to quality! Stop using boxed and canned foods! Anything you eat that's not whole and fresh will deliver a bad set of instructions to the body. Let me Dave Parise (no I'm not a dietitian) not into food pyramids, or counting servings! I am not a nutritionist... no such animal... no such degree! Read a book and preach! Presto! You are a nutritionist! I am not a licensed medical professional! I am not an exercise physiologist! I have not met one in 29 years that doesn't need major work in bio-mechanics of movement and proper exercise technique. Book smart is cool, and but living in academia and never entering the "trenches" of the real hands on world". Back to the truth about food. I want you to start eating foods from the RAINBOW- and I don't mean skittles! Eat colorful foods, go for the darkest deepest colors from the plant world that you can find. Red, yellow, purple, green, blue, those vibrant colors are super charged with phytonutrients or phytochemicals... "Phyto" refers to the Greek word for plant. A plant food contains thousands of natural chemicals. These chemicals help protect plants from germs, fungi, bugs, and other threats. Phytonutrients aren't essential for keeping you alive, unlike the vitamins and minerals that plant foods contain. But when you eat or drink phytonutrients, they help prevent disease and keep your body working properly. I believe based on my research that vegetables should take up 40-45% of your plate 3 times per day! Remember food is information, so what other types of food needs to be present? (Pro) Protein- protein at every meal! Eggs, Poultry, grass fed meats, (sustainability & raised) organic or wild caught fish, not farmed (stay away from tilapia and sword) my favorites are salmon, cod, steel head trout, and sardines in water. Use various types of non radiated nuts (thanks GEORGE BUSH!) like almonds, cashews, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and hemp seeds. Please stay clear of any type of SOY! Toxic garbage food! Thanks (Monsanto) for creating the "harvest of fear"... . Back to protein at every meal! WHY? Because a higher protein diet balances the hormones that regulate our apostate. (Appetite) and it helps increase our metabolic rate- how? by helping repair over active muscle, and because muscle (our fat-burning-engines) burns 6 to 7 times more calories than fat burns... Muscles are cool! (science word) (Pro) protein should be present at every meal! I am not talking 3-times per day... protein 5x per day... remember your mid AM and pre PM snack.
The last piece of Vidal info I can share is we all need FAT! We want less on us, than in us. I understand however the right amounts of fat is the key. Please don't say OH well that's a good fat! FAT IS FAT! The reason why people shy away from fat is formulated by: not losing weight because of their sedentary, lazy, excuses of why they don't exercise enough! Hence they starve, omit, and send the wrong information to the body- "SHUT DOWN & CONSERVE" what the body does to get out of work! (Google GLUCONEOGENESIS)
I know I teased you today- short and sweet! To be continued... #parisepromise!
