Genetically very little has changed about the human body since the beginning of time. The body still requires a specific cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to thrive.

If the body does not obtain this ratio, many things can happen.

The first main concern for most is obesity. Although other serious issues can arise and many of which have become wide spread across America today because of the body not receiving the “RIGHT” formula of foods.

The ailments of a bad diet can be seen everywhere ranging from Diabetes, High blood pressure, Heart Disease, Cancer, and other debilitating diseases.

Some have seen amazing benefits from switching to a more natural type eating plan and have actually seen symptoms from diseases such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes, high blood pressure, and celiac disease actually diminish as well as the persons need for medication.

Healthy eating can benefit all walks of life and nearly any health problem with of course some exceptions.

Every part of your body is formed from the food that YOU eat. This means your hair, your nails, your skin and every aspect of your body.

Have you ever stopped and thought about the fact that not only your entire body and every cell in it are being influenced by the food you eat but also the way you feel?

Now to the reason we are here. HOW in the WORLD do I eat the way that is intended for my body to perform to the best of its ability?

It is simple really! Think if you were a pioneer living off the land. I know, I know very primal but did you realize our cavemen brother and sisters are no different genetically than we are today? 

So in order for your body to run how it should you need certain food sources in which your body can pull these necessary vitamins, nutrients, and minerals.

  • Lean Meats (protein)- This can be from beef, chicken, pork, lamb, deer, buffalo and fish etc..

  • Vegetables (carbohydrates)- As many and different combinations as you can think of! Tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, asparagus, beets, squash, lettuce, spinach, cabbage, kale, mustard greens, collard greens etc..

  • Fruits (carbohydrates)- apples, oranges, pears, kiwis, bananas, nectarines, grapes, blackberries, blueberries. strawberries etc..

  • Nuts (Protein/fat)- Almonds, pistachios, cashews, walnuts, pecans

  • Seeds(fat)- Sunflower, pumpkin, flax seed

  • Fats- Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Grape seed oil, Flax seed, Avocado

The goal is to eat WHOLE foods!

  • Limit the amount of foods you eat that come from a package!

  • Limit the foods that have more than 5 ingredients!

Eat on a 85/15 rule, which leaves around 3 meals a week that can be off guidelines a little!

3 meals and 2-3 snacks a day

Meals should consist of Meat (protein) the size of your palm, two handfuls of vegetables (carbohydrate) or a palm size portion of fruit (carbohydrate) and 1-tablespoon healthy fat!

Snacks should consist of half palm size portion of Meat (protein), 1 handful vegetable (carbohydrate) or a half palm of fruit (carbohydrate) and ½ tablespoon of healthy fat!

This should be followed every meal and every snack! The better the balance of Protein/Carbohydrate/Fat the better you feel!
