I just sat through 6 days of “Nutrition School”, beginning the process to acquire more letters behind my name. My teacher, Dr. Bob, was brilliant and is the nutritionist for Holyfield.
My favorite take away from him was to be healthy you need to:
1. Think Right
2. Eat Right
3. Poop Right
4. Drink Right
5. Move Right
6. Sleep Right
7. Talk Right
Most of you know how I feel about pooping, and to integrate all of these will get you over the hump of living a life with low energy and Dis-EASE symptoms.
The goal is to become completely aware of your body and learn from your symptoms. Understanding YOUR body is essential to live a healthy life. For example, when you crave sugar right after meals this is a sign that your Macronutrients, hormones, and blood sugars are imbalanced. Balancing these factors will provide more energy, healthier digestion, and increase lean muscle mass.
The Macronutrients are: Proteins, Carbohydrates & Fat. Healthy proteins include; Low-mercury white fish, Wild Salmon, Buffalo, Dark Meat Chicken, Eggs, Lentils & Beans. The best carbohydrates in the world are vegetables especially; Kale, Spinach, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, and heaps more. Quinoa, Brown rice, and Sweet Potatoes offer more complex carbohydrate energy. Healthy fats that balance out your diet are; Avocado, Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Pumpkin Seeds, Omega 3’s, Chia Seeds, and Coconut oil. The Conscious Nutrition Food Tree is a great resource to assist you to implement these nutrients while you meal plan.

When you begin to journal, do NOT count calories, however balance out your Macronutrients through out the day by properly combining your proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Also, there are other variables to address and monitor such as; Sleeping patterns, Bowel Movements, Water Intake, and STRESS.
Every BODY is different and every day is different. When you discover what feeling good feels like, use this as a baseline to refer back to when you are out of balance.
