If you’ve been plagued by illness, excess weight or just a feeling of malaise, restorative nutrition may be the answer that has eluded you. Everyone is different, so even if you’re eating healthy, but it’s not the diet your body requires, you may not be seeing the results you’ve hoped to achieve. What you eat does make a huge difference in weight loss and overall well being. More and more studies show that nutrition plays a huge role in health. In fact, less than 50 years ago, nobody ever considered that milk could make you sick. Today we know differently. A person who’s lactose intolerant won’t fare well on a diet high in cheese and milk, just as a gluten intolerant person will feel miserable if there’s an abundance of wheat in their diet.
Sometimes eating too little can cause you to gain weight.
You may have been on diets all your life and never lost a pound, but instead, packed a few onto your body. That’s not necessarily your fault or lack of will power. It’s not necessarily all about calories. In fact, decreasing caloric intake over long periods….and sometimes even short periods…can often lead to malnutrition, as well as metabolic stress. That has an impact on how rapidly your body metabolizes calories and can cause you to put on fat rather than lose it.
Sometimes increasing caloric intake, but insuring it’s the right foods and supplements, can repair your metabolism and get great results.
Some people need to eat different types of foods, and sometimes more of it, to see results in weight loss. For those trying to gain muscle mass, a specific type of dietary change can also be a huge benefit, rather than simply taking protein supplementation. Everyone’s different and those differences are why your friend can eat anything without worrying about gaining a few pounds, but the minute you look at a breakfast roll, it starts building it’s own roll around your waist.
One plan doesn’t work for everyone and it might not work forever either.
Your body is a master of change and compensates for diets over the long haul. That’s why switching the way you eat may be just as important as changing the way you exercise periodically. It keeps your body working at maximum potential, so you’ll be burning calories rather than storing them in the form of fat.
While restorative eating helps you with basic plans, it also aids you in learning how to eat healthier. That allows you to take charge of your nutritional program and make changes that can keep you fit the rest of your life.
Some things are true, no matter what body type you have or how you eat. One of these truths is that processed foods are never as healthy for you as whole foods.
Learning to make conscious decisions when it comes to eating is also important. Many people often eat out of habit, putting the food in their mouth without thinking.
You’ll be amazed at how much more you’ll eat and how great you’ll feel, but still lose weight on the right type of dietary plan.
