Eating Guide

Here's the deal. You need Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats, Vitamins, Minerals and Water to function properly.

Protein is needed for building and repairing the body. Good sources include lean meat poultry fish egg whites, quinoa, soy and hemp. The RDA is 0.8 grams per Kg body weight. I recommend ten percent of your daily calorie needs to maintain your target weight.

Carbohydrates are the body's preferred fuel source. The brain is particularly sensitive to low blood sugar levels. Starving the brain can have serious consequences so eat on time and avoid “low-carb” diets. Good sources of carbohydrates include fruits, vegetables, beans, peas, whole grains and yams. I recommend sixty percent of your daily calorie needs from carbohydrates. Eat carbohydrates in the prescribed quantities. Choose foods in quantities that produce a low to moderate Glycemic Load on your blood (see FOOD LIST). The long-term consumption of a diet with a relatively high GL (adjusted for total energy) is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease and some types of cancer.
