Balance The Body To Achieve weight Loss!

Lose Weight And Live Longer With This Simple Advice:

The longer I’ve been in the healthcare industry as a Naturopath,  treating many clients in  Melbourne, the more I realise that a ‘balanced body’ is the key to just about any health goal you might have.

Whether you want to lose weight, reduce body fat, build muscle, or increase athleticism, the faster you balance your body the quicker you’ll see results.

The first step is to balance your ‘Macronutrient Ratio,’ which is just a fancy way of saying that you have to balance the amount of carbs:proteins:fats you consume.

Here’s a simple rule that I like to follow, as a general theme to healthy eating and high energy output:
9 grams of carbs: 7 grams protein: 4 grams fat

Next, consider the ‘Nutrient Density’ in everything you eat. Not all calories were created equally, not even from the same macronutrient classification or category. Eating animal fats usually means more cholesterol, especially with red meat, but this isn’t necessarily a problem like most people think…

Cholesterol is actually normal and great for your body — it’s something your body naturally produces, and it’s required to sustain life. However, inflammation + high levels of cholesterol consumption with your diet results in a very dangerous situation.

‘Triglycerides’ are often the root cause of inflammation and bloating, as a result of most people’s dietary standards. If you eat sugar, you’re inflating. If you eat cookies, crackers, white bread, or estrogenic products like soy and non-organic fruits and vegetables, you’re inflaming. Ultimately, this means that your body will have a harder time processing the carbs it consumes. Your body’s relationship with a normal macronutrient changes, and it will affect you differently.

If you have a lot of inflammation in your body, fix this first, then adjust your diet for increased nutrient density. Get rid of any trans fats, most of the grains you consume, and any food category that you’re particularly sensitive to. Alongside, take a careful look at your environment — if you are in a stressed-out situation, take time each day to calm your mind through meditation, positive self-talk, and visualization of happier circumstances. I recommend at least 15-20 minutes per day.

Once you address the inflammation in your body, you can hone in on eating the “right” foods, even if they have things like cholesterol in them that scares you to put in your mouth. Now its time for the grass-fed beef, free range organic and grass-fed chickens, and the eggs they produce (yolks included!)

Last, but certainly not least, it’s important you balance your micronutrients and hydration. These are the ‘invisible’ aspects of your daily health rituals that need to exist. Hydration is pretty easy, unless you have some extreme reason for dehydration – generally about 25mls per kilo. So if you weigh 100kg, drink 2.5litres.

Micronutrients, on the other hand, are an uphill battle. To derive all of the micronutrients your body needs simply from the food you consume is very difficult. For example, you’d have to eat a variety of about 25 different fruits and vegetables, but just small pieces of each one. This is how you’d get the proper mineral balance, sugar consumption, and antioxidant value you need for optimal health.

Not to mention, the health of your digestive tract determines how well your body will respond to any of the information above. Digestive enzymes that target ease with digestion and enzyme release specifically designed to break up acidic foods, or difficult to digest substances, can make a game-changing difference in the balance of your overall health

Again, you can do a lot for your gut by consuming ‘Probiotics’ in the form of plain (non-sweetened) yogurt, and you can strengthen your digestive tract significantly. However, this is only part of the equation, and it would have to be daily habit.

For the fastest and most reliable (daily) solution to micronutrient, digestive enzyme, and electrolyte balance, I simplify my life with a smoothie each morning (actually, my wife makes it for me — she’s awesome!) – here’s exactly what goes in this smoothie:

• 2 heaping tablespoons G TOX EXPRESS
• Chia seeds (generous serving)
• 1 scoop protein powder (if I’m not eating breakfast right away for some reason)
• Frozen blueberries (about 10)
• 300-400mls of water.

Drink this smoothie and watch your body balance out. You’ll be losing fat in no time, and you’ll watch your health improve substantially.

Caring for you naturally,
