Be the Best Version of YOU!!

 


The state of wellness can be defined as the absence of disease.  Imagine taking that definition even further to be able to:

  • Burn fat as your main source of energy
  • Reach and maintain your ideal lean body for a lifetime
  • Have mental clarity and concentration
  • Have steady energy all day long
  • Perform at your best possible level
  • Help prevent any future inflammation which can lead to chronic illness
  • Age slower and more beautifully so you can enjoy life longer

Research tells us that disease begins with inflammation at the cellular level.  If we are to reach a state of wellness and remain there then we need to reduce and control inflammation.  But how?

How you balance your macro nutrients, which are Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats, directly affects whether or not your body will have inflammation.

When you eat either too many carbs or too many proteins in a meal your hormonal responses will lead to excessive insulin released which ultimately results in increased inflammation. When this is repeated consistently, it can lead to a chronic illness, such as obesity, diabetes, cancers, Alzheimer etc..  Furthermore, by consuming the wrong kinds of fats you can also increase inflammation.

By following LifeUpright’s Nutrition & Wellness Plan which is based on scientific research by Dr. Barry Sears and my own studies and experiences you can realize these long term benefits.

"Thirty40Thirty Nutrition" is calories combined with 30% Protein, 40% Carbohydrates and 30% Heart-healthy Fats.  For most meals it's as simple as looking at your hand:

  • Eat lean protein the size and thickness of your palm.
  • Add colorful vegetables and/or fruit servings per day to fill the rest of your plate - Aim for at least 4-5.
  • Eat a thumb-size portion of heart-healthy fats along with it.

This will satisfy your hunger and maintain adequate energy levels for the next 4-5 hours. Other guidelines to follow include:

  • Eat 5-6 times per day: 3 meals and 2 snacks.
  • Eat within 1 hour of waking.
  • Never go more than 4-5 hours between meals or snacks.
  • Always eat a balanced snack before bedtime.

In case you have a cheat meal or snack just wait 3-4 hours and eat a meal or snack to get back to the benefits.
