  • We spend $1000's of dollars on servicing our cars and using premium fuel each year... yet most won't spend a single cent on their own health!

I was recently out at a function and overheard an interesting conversation between two men. Both in their late 60's and had worked incredibly hard their whole life. One diabetic, one pre-diabetic. Due to recent health scares they had both finally invested in themselves to improve their wellbeing and dropped 16kg and 13kg respectively in the last 18months.

It was fascinating listening to them share 'war stories' of their old habits... how shocking they felt, how much they had flogged their body over the years with poor food choices, stress, long hours, minimal sleep, no exercise and running on empty. And no surprise they had both hit triple digits on the scales and their health took a massive hit. Very different journeys in life yet they both came to the same conclusion... "I spend 1000's of dollars a year on servicing my beautiful car, would only ever use premium fuel to ensure it runs at its best. But all those years I wouldn't pay a cent on my own health. Now I have and fuel my body like my car - high quality food every 3 hours, lots of water, bit of movement and I feel the best I have ever felt. " It is as simple as that. 
If your energy is crashing at 3pm or you are waking up sluggish chances are you are not fuelling your body correctly. Next week I am speaking at an event to teach exactly this. How to fuel your body correctly to get the most out of it. Stay tuned for details or DM me.

  • FOOD IS INFORMATION

What makes us thin, fat, or somewhere in between does certainly have something to do with how much we eat (quantity) and exercise.

BUT we tend to neglect to appreciate the QUALITY of the food when it comes to overall health and expected results.

Little explanation:

When calories are burned in a laboratory, there is no difference between 1000 calories of broccoli and 1000 calories of gummy bears.

BUT when each of these foods are metabolised in your body, THAT is where the difference is.

The calories you eat are absorbed at different rates, have different amounts of fibre, carbohydrates, protein, fat, and nutrients, all of which translate into different complex metabolic signals that controls your health and your weight

Remember, the quality of the food we put into our bodies is what drives our gene function, gene expression, metabolism, and overall health.

Take home message is “food is information”. And not all calories are the same.

  • Do you ever avoid a certain food because your initial thought is ‘that will make me FAT....?’
-
There is a huge misconception around food, one of the biggest problems a lot of us face is the negative thought or assumption before we eat 🍓
-
Little do we realise, what’s HEALTHIER than something like broccoli 🥦 is the relationship we have with food as a whole!
-
We always remind our babes to look at what we’re doing over a longer period of time (eg. 3-6 months) as a measure, rather than what we’ve done for 1 week, small changes over time create better, and more sustainable habits 🥝
-
This week, we’re cutting dairy 🥛, carbs 🥔 and 🍩 all in one (lol)...let’s see how long it lasts 🤪 just kidding, make sure next time you choose to cut something out (if that’s what’s been recommended) you understand the WHY behind it...
-
Oh & check your thought process next time you eat..... 💭 -
If you need a little more guidance, book your consult for a personalised meal plan at HQ with our resident nutritionist @flourishedyou 🥑

  • ...es decir, "fructose" o fructosa, es un azúcar simple que se encuentra en las frutas y la miel. Desempeña un papel importante en la lipogénesis, lo que significa que puede promover el aumento de peso. Aproximadamente el 50% de una carga de fructosa se convierte en glucosa (azúcar), el 25% en lactato y alrededor del 15% en glucógeno (azúcar almacenado).
.
Las frutas enteras contienen fibras solubles e insolubles que evitan que la mayoría de su azúcar se absorba rápido en el proceso digestivo, y limita la tasa de absorción del azúcar en el hígado, por lo tanto, disminuye la lipogénesis o producción de grasas. .
A pesar de la similitud en sus estructuras químicas, la fructosa y la glucosa se metabolizan de formas completamente diferentes y utilizan diferentes transportadores para entrar a las células. La mayoría de las células tienen solo pequeñas cantidades del transportador glut-5, que transporta la fructosa, por lo que no pueden usar la fructosa como una fuente de energía. Mientras, la glucosa es transportada a las células por glut-4, un sistema de transporte dependiente de la insulina presente en grandísimas cantidades en nuestros tejidos, pero requiere de insulina para poder funcionar y dejar ingresar a la glucosa a cada célula.
.
Esta es una diferencia básica, ya que la glucosa estimula la liberación de insulina del páncreas, mientras la fructosa no. Sin embargo, un exceso de fructosa tampoco es conveniente porque como ven, se puede prestar a la producción de grasas y por ende al aumento de peso no deseado.

  • HAVING CALORIES WITHOUT VITAMINS & MINERALS IS LIKE HAVING A CAR WITHOUT A DRIVER. ⁠
⁠
While micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) don’t contribute energy to fuel human activity, they do play a large indirect role in 'the burning of Calories' and are therefore important in the equation of energy balance. ⁠
⁠
Micronutrients play vital roles in metabolic reactions or the transfer of energy in the human body. Their functions include facilitating oxidative metabolism, oxygen transport, motor neuron function and more. So yes, Calories fuel humans & micronutrients fundamentally don't, but micronutrients allow the Calories to fuel the human... If that makes sense. ⁠
⁠
Without adequate micronutrients, human function and metabolism is impaired. Whether you're an athlete looking to perform your best, an office worker who needs to be cognitively 'on', or just looking to feel and look better. Calories are fundamental, but micronutrients pull the trigger. ⁠

  • Eat your fats!
🥥
Fat increases satiety (fullness) & important for absorption of your fat soluble vitamins (A, K, E, D), the proper function of your nerves and brain, and proper hormone and cell communication.
🥜
As a general rule of thumb, avoid industrialized man-made fats/oils and opt for whole food fats.
🥥
Coconut - made up of medium chain triglycerides, most of which are comprised of caprylic and lauric acid. Caprylic and lauric acid are potent antimicrobials, meaning they naturally kill unwanted bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
🥑
Walnuts - boast the highest phytochemical, flavonoid, and antioxidant capacity amongst tree nuts along with being rich sources of fiber, protein, and ALA omega-3 fatty acids. Great for brain health and enhanced glucose and insulin homeostasis.
🥜
Olives - rich source of monounsaturated fats and contains the powerful antioxidant oleocanthal. Olives are anti-inflammatory and have been shown to be beneficial for cardiovascular health.
🥥
Sardines - high in anti-inflammatory long chain omega-3 EPA and DHA fats for brain health and cardiovascular support, high protein, rich in B12, selenium, vitamin D, phosphorus, calcium, and lowest in mercury of all fatty fish.
🥑
Almonds - include monounsaturated fats, fiber, antioxidants, riboflavin and magnesium.
🥜
Flax seeds - rich in polyunsaturated ALA omega-3 fats, flavonoids, and high in lignans which act as antioxidant and an insoluble fiber. Can modulate estrogen levels (used in seed cycling). Blood pressure lowering benefits.
🥥
Pumpkin seeds - high in protein, and rich in zinc, lignans, and phytosterols.
🥑
Avocado- high in healthy monounsaturated fat, low sugar fruit, and rich in potassium + fiber. Also a source of vitamin K, folate, magnesium, lutein, and zeaxanthin.
🥜
Hemp seeds - rich in both omega-3 and omega-6 essential fats, 10g complete protein per serving

The #proteins as #macronutrients are the key for a good shape. And, there are #proteinsnacks who won't stop you, but will help you to get your summer body.
Many people will say that this diet plan does not look that healthy. But we should have in mind that during the student year there is not enough free time, enough money and also lots of energy is wasted on studying. So the dopamine form the delicious food is pretty important (especially chocolate). Also we should search for the lowest price available option, so... and also,lots of cals and carbs for the proper brain function and condition is pretty important.

  • Here is what a day of food could look like for someone following a low calorie high to moderate protein intake fat loss diet.⁣ We know, to lose weight we must eat fewer calories than we burn - aka a calorie deficit.⁣⁣⠀
•⠀
This is just a guide to help give you an idea of some of the things you can include in your diet, as you can see we follow a general 80/20 rule.⁣ Mostly whole foods with single ingredients with a little bit of sweet to finish off the day, because who doesn't love ice cream.⁣ •⠀
You may look at the ice cream and go OHH NO but the sugar.⁣ It doesn't matter; it's perfectly fine and much more sustainable than a "clean eating approach" to include some treat here and there while dieting. ⁣⠀
•⠀
Feel free to adjust this based on your individual needs, and I highly recommend your foods in an app such as myfitnesspal.⁣ If you were to include any drinks; water or calorie-free diet drinks are perfectly acceptable. ⁣⠀
•⠀
The best way to sustainable fat loss is to work out your fat loss calories and fit the food you already love to eat to your individual needs. ⁣⠀
