The Secret to a Healthy Diet

Knowing your Biochemical type and repairing your glands

South Beach … Atkins … Zone … With so many fad diets on the market, there’s a general misconception about what a healthy diet consists of. Nutrition is not one-size-fits-all. Each person’s Biochemical type and genetic background influence how the body produces energy. This means that some types of foods are better for some people and other types of foods are better for others.

Understanding your Biochemical Type

Your Biochemical type dictates how your body processes certain foods into energy. The key to a healthy diet is keeping your individual blood sugar from spiking. When blood sugar is too high, the body secretes insulin, which in turn triggers these reactions:

  • The body absorbs fat
  • Serotonin is released, sending a message to the body that induces sleep
  • Testosterone decreases, reducing the body’s ability to build muscle and maintain strength

Eating the wrong foods can lead to spikes in blood sugar levels. This sporadic and frequent release of insulin will begin to tax the pancreas (as well as other organs and glands), and the body eventually gets resistant to its own insulin. When this occurs, metabolic syndrome (Pre-Diabetic) may start and then progress into diabetes.

For each Biochemical type, a healthy diet consists of a different percentage of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. By combining the right foods, you’ll:

  • have more energy
  • avoid storing fat
  • increase muscle density
  • sleep better
  • decrease the negative impact on your organs and glands
  • and generally slow down the aging process.
