Watch this short video to learn what you are missing to your perfect diet.

Video transcript: The secret to your perfect diet 

Hello, I am Cameron from Core Health Coaching. Today’s topic is about the secret to your perfect diet. Recently, I took a client through what we are discussing today and she took me on face value and completely did it and had some amazing successes within a week . She said to me was why don’t they teach these in schools? It’s a good question, so thank you again for listening in.

Now to the secret to your perfect diet. You may notice the words that I said, is the secret to your perfect diet and not a secret to the perfect diet. Now one of the things that actually falls down is that we talk a lot about the food pyramid for everyone. I talked about it last week. So if you missed out on that I’ll will add this to our Facebook Live feed, but what will happen is that … it needs to have an understanding around what is the difference between the perfect diet and your perfect diet. It’s having an understanding that everyone is very different. 

Now that shouldn’t be a shock to people, but when it comes to food we seem to think that everyone should have the same food, and that’s what I talked a little bit about last time was always a little bit about wrong about the food pyramid. So the questions that I want to ask you –

Why do people lose weight on a specific diet and you don’t?

Have you ever wondered why one diet doesn’t work for one person and it does for another?

Why do some people have food intolerances and allergies and others don’t?

And the simple is, the secret is that we are different and it’s not groundbreaking, but I tell you what when you actually think about it, the food gives us different micro-nutrients, but if we need different micro-nutrients it also makes sense that we need different macro-nutrients.

Let me explain the difference areas, macro-nutrients are our proteins, our fats and our carbs, and the micro-nutrients are the vitamin A, B, C, D, E, and K and a whole heap of minerals, our secondary nutrients and live enzymes. So all of those micro-nutrients, we kind of have an understanding that we need something different for that, but when it comes to macro-nutrients we don’t tend to differentiate. Now currently at the moment the food pyramid lists different foods, but that’s an assumption, all of those foods are healthy to your body. And if you’ve seen anyone with an anaphylactic shock you have an understanding that food for that person no matter how healthy is actually not right for them. So lets talk about different foods groups.

So the two fuel sources I want to talk about is protein and  carbs. Our food is broken down into two areas and there’s a basic understanding that proteins are broken down in amino acids and carbohydrates are broken down to blood sugars.

So the way that I can describe it if I can give you an analogy around this is, that if you put diesel fuel into an unleaded car it wouldn’t really work, okay. And if you put unleaded fuel into a diesel car, again it wouldn’t work that well, okay.

So the big thing is that our bodies and muscles are very different. We have fast twitch muscle fibres and we have slow twitch muscle fibres. So if we compare a marathon runner to a sprinter, you can see their body shapes and muscles types are very different, so it makes sense that you’re going to need the right fuel for different body and muscle types. It’s either going to be more proteins (amino acids) or more carbs (broken down to sugars). So someone with a slow twitch needs more sugars. Someone with a fast twitch like a sprinter would need more proteins.

So when we understanding that our body needs different fuel types, we also need different fuel types at different stages of our life. When we’re first born we obviously need a different fuel type from when we’re actually ageing. A woman that’s pregnant needs different nutrients because she is growing another life. The big one that most people know about is folic acid. So a teenage boy’s requirements are very different from an elderly woman’s. So when we’re stressed we actually need different fuels than what we do when we’re not stressed, so those fuel macro-nutrients, all that fuel mix needs to shift.

So the big question there is what is the right fuel choice and how do we determine that, so I suppose the big thing is listening to your body. Now most people answered have already said this will know which macro-nutrients that they need more, okay, is I have a buddy of mine, he starts shaking after two hours. He needs a lot of fuel. He’s a fast oxidizer. I mean he’s a high protein type person, builds muscle real easily. So and then other friends of ours don’t feel really comfortable with heavy protein. I think my dad doesn’t feel really comfortable having really heavy meat. So why, because that fuel type is not right for him.

So if you’re listening to your body you’ll inherently know what food type is right for you anyway, but the critical things around you food types is actually about your mood, your energies, and feeling full. So is if you’re having the right fuel type you should be full. An hour after your meal you shouldn’t necessarily be looking for food. Your energy level should be high. Your mood will be good, so it’s kind of like if you’re listening to those couple of things, but there’s also some other external factors that are really good in regards to listening to as well. One of those is just around, is how your body is responding to the food again.

So some of the short term requirements, if you’re having too much carb. And I’m reading of some notes here, but if you’re having too many carbs for instance you might get satisfied really quickly, but then the hunger comes back quickly. You might crave more fat and protein. You might be a little bit jittery, so sometimes you’re jittery and why is the sugars can actually get your body excited. So your nervous energy levels might be really high as well. So that’s when you’re getting too much carbs. When you’re getting too much protein and I’m sure most of us had a situation where we sit back and we just feel so full and so lethargic after our meal. So that’s a real indication in regards to the we’re having too much protein. We can feel sluggish and slow, our gut feels heavy so we’re actually not really digesting it that well. So our body is more of a slow oxidizer, takes a while to actually process it. So when we’ve had too much obviously it’s just taking a fair toll on the body.

Feeling … we may be craving sweets … we’re looking for those carbohydrates. You might crave coffee or tea to get that stimulant because that protein is really heavy. So if you’re listening to your body you should be really able to work out what fuel type is important for you and what makes your body really well because as I’ve talked to a lot of our clients is can you just imagine when you get the right fuel type is that they don’t feel hungry, they have energy, and their mood is good all the time. So it’s a really important part and not undersell how big this macro-nutrient requirement is. We kind of get micro-nutrients when some foods don’t have it, but when we’re talking big picture sort of stuff we need to have an understanding that our macro-nutrients are as important and they are specific to your body.

So if you actually really wanting to know more detail about it look just on our Facebook Live post, write down there, want more details, and happy to send you out a questionnaire, 14 questions that will give you a really good understanding of which foods your body responds well too, okay. So more than happy to do that, otherwise if you’re looking for more health and fitness tips go to our free Facebook group called Daily Health and Fitness Tips.

I’ll put that out on our comments, so if you’ve got any questions we’re more than happy to answer those questions, but this is really groundbreaking and I know it seems fairly simple but it can make a significant difference.

We don’t think about food that way and macro-nutrients. We think about micro nutrients, but we just think about food sometimes. So if you listen to your body this is a really change of how we have an understanding in regards to food. So anyway look thank you for listening to me. Hope you have a great day with this tip, see if you can incorporate it during the week and notice the difference, so many of our clients have. So have a great day and look forward to catching up with you next week. See ya.
