The most talked about situation in the vegan world at the moment. Things have turned really bad for vlogger Rawvana (Yovana Mendoza Ayres) who was caught eating fish and exposed by her friend and popular vlogger Pautips
Low carb diet
Paleo diet – Pete Evans, award-winning Australian chef, talks about the benefits of paleo and a low-carb diet.
I can choose to cook food that potentially may cause you harm, or I can choose to cook food that we know it’s going to benefit you.
“I don’t know how to cook”
Food is Medicine
My job is to give you beautiful recipes and how to apply this onto your day-to-day life.
We’ve heard about the low carb movement.
This is how I’ve put together my paleo plate. I’ve read a book called Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas about 5 yrs ago and it just makes sense. She makes the case of moderate amount meat, she doesn’t promote excess meat, which I think it’s smart, especially with sustainability issues.
The Paleo Plate
- Palm size piece of meat or seafood
- Abundant of colorful vegetables (Above th eground preferably)
- Enough dietary fat to satiate in the form of avocados, olives, nuts, seeds, eggs, if tolerated and the most natural fat from animals.
- Add fermented vegetables and fermented beverages (Kombucha) for good gut health as well as daily bone broth.
- Herbs and spices to round it up.
As a chef, the first thing I learned in culinary school was how to make a broth. Bone broth is good for the gut and delicious. First culinary training starts with flavor. Chefs have as much nutritional training as doctors.
If you are trying to lose weight, for ten weeks load up on vegetables, the green vegetables, the white vegetables, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, beets, etc
Why you are not losing weight with a Paleo diet and lifestyle…
You NEED to watch your carbohydrate intake
You can have a list of the paleo-proof foods you can eat and the ones you don’t… but still, you need to watch what you eat.
Ready for some controversy?
Fruit: Fruit is packed-full of fructose, same fructose as in high fructose high syrup.
FRUIT IS FULL OF SUGAR.
As an example, 1 medium banana can contain anywhere from 24 to 27 grams of fructose, that’s 27 grams of carbohydrates.
If you want to start losing fat, set a goal of eating less than 50 grams of Net carbohydrates per day. Which is extremely low (The average western diet is between 300 or 400 carbs per day).But That is a golden rule for fat-loss, you are guaranteed to lose it if you stay under 50 grams of carbs per day. Of course while getting all the other things you need: vitamins, minerals, green vegetables, etc.
If you don’t get enough sleep, your body is not going to do what you want it to do. LACK OF SLEEP increases the risk of injury. Sleep is critical specially if you are working out heavily, for those muscles to recover. No screen before bed (1 hour or at least 30 mins).
It is messing up your melatonin production. Grab a book instead and read a fiction book before bed, it will help you fall asleep. You might not necessarily get your 8 hours per day, try to get at least 6 hours of sleep per night.
We live in a world of crossfit, mud runs, endurance sports, etc Seems to be part of the “caveman mentality”. But there is such a thing as “overtraining”, especially if you are still new to it. You are probably doing more harm than good. If you want positive body composition changes, you need to get 80 to 90% of those results from NUTRITION.
If your MAIN GOAL is FAT LOSS, all you have to really do is remove the carbohydrates (Sugar, glucose).
Your body can either burn fat OR burn glucose for energy, if you remove glucose, your body has no choice than to burn fat.
