Day 16 What to Believe

There is so much information regarding nutrition and exercise, many people don't know what to believe.  One person will say one diet is good because it works for them.  Another will argue that their diet, which is the opposite, is better because that's what works for them.

No matter how you choose to eat, higher proration of carbs or higher of protein or higher of fat.  They can all work as long as other macro-nutrient prorations work in conjunction with your choice.  We are all different.  We have different metabolisms and body types.  We all workout at different levels.  There is no one size fits all. 

One thing that is constant is sugar intake.  Whatever diet macronutrient prorations you choose, sugar should not be included in the forms of table sugar or its substitutes.  If its not natural, don't bite!  We do live in a world of talked "cheats" or "free meals", these on occasion can be ok.  The reason for this is mostly sanity since we were raised on so much sugar and feel deprived when changing our lifestyle.  It is suppose to give us more "social" acceptance.  But necessary...I don't think so.  If we eat a variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, protein and even occasional healthy starches such as sweet potato, you are feeding your body everything it needs.  You can play with your proratations with these foods.  Higher fat, more fatty meat, whole eggs, nuts.  Higher protein...ok eat less of what I just mentioned and make it leaner cuts of meat, egg whites.  Higher carb, no problem.  Eat more sweet potato, veggies and fruit.  Just stay clear of harmful substances, sugar and man-made products.  

How do you find a plan that's right for you?  Seek someone out such as a nutrition coach who can put a plan together based on their knowledge of your metabolism and body type.  Then log and monitor your progress and tweek your plan until you have the one that works best.

Going Strong....ALL DAY LONG!
