This whole time I have to mention too, that I’ve been wanting to get and stay pregnant. Yep, I’m a late bloomer with wanting to start a family. So besides being a dancer and fitness coach—and being pretty body-centric—and wanting to do whatever it took to protect myself from early-onset dementia (and keep researching for my family to do the same, too)…being over it with having the blues…and wanting to get pregnant…let’s just say that I was highly, highly motivated to understand all the ins and outs of these recommendations.
So maybe one of my best results of getting in solid MICROS & MACROS (including Protein) is that I'm a very happy, very late-bloomer pregnant sports nutrition advisor, fitness coach & dancer right now! (Baby Wu coming in April 2020 :))
Are you put off by LONG Research text...complex calorie MATH...
Or just straight up RESENTFUL about the huge variety of "nutrition info" out there??
Sister--I feel your pain.
The reality is--we feel like we should ALREADY KNOW everything we need to know about "healthy eating," because we obviously need to eat, right?
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it)--"eating healthy" is NOT that intuitive. Your stomach can shrink or grow to accommodate volumes of food,
So it does take some PLANNING to really see how much & the kind of foods are going to work best for YOU>
We're going to do that planning here.
It often feels like there's too much & contradictory advice about WHAT IS HEALTHY when it comes to food...
The thing is though--A LOT of research has been done on how many calories (energy) you need to function & have good energy...and the US Government has invested a TON is creating an RDA (recommended daily allowance) of EACH MICRONUTRIENT your body needs to function.
The truth is there IS solid foundational research out there we can use--we just have to look at this foundational stuff.
And, at the same time--based on different ancestral peoples & the work of researchers like Dr. Weston A Price--we know that humans can do well with different ranges of Macros (protein & carbs)...The trick is to pick the amount that's best for YOU (and your current activity level).
We can do this people--no need to be overwhelmed.
And finally, I know a lot of people tell me: "I just can't do what you do. Get all involved with "counting" and get detailed about food."
The reality is you really CAN (I'm going to make it SO step-by-step for you)...and that if you brush it all away without taking a crack at it in the first place, you are kind of un-empowering yourself to take charge of your own health, longevity, happiness & energia.
Let's get started with PROTEIN and I know you CAN rock this. 🙂
