PILLAR 2 - CONNECT TO NUTRITION

The quality of the food we put into our body impacts the function of our whole system. From daily performance and vigor to mood regulation and sleep, when our body is nutrient-rich and healthy our mind is clear and our systems work more efficiently. The food we eat is as much a part of our sense of self that it shapes our social gatherings, binds us to a cultural identity, dictates our behavior, and is something we must consider every single day.

In fact, we make food choices several times a day, and in each of those moments, we are gifted with an opportunity for looking more deeply at the impact that choice will have on our health.

Undertaking an effective detox regimen can help reduce inflammation, lose weight, improve sleep, and boost circulation. Nora will help us realize all these benefits and more as she explains the best ways to feed and flush our systems toward better inner health.

Q AND A

Last week you talked about a way to reset your digestive system with a 7 day cleanse, is this something you are going to share?

What I was referring to was when we incoroprate prebiotics into our diet we feed the good bacteria in the gut. This is best done by eating variety of vegetables containing beneficial fiber, which can reset gut flora in 7-10. This is a “reset” not a “cleanse” per say. Eat a different vegetable each day containing different starches and forms of cellulose. Ex: Day 1: leek soup, day 2: asparagus, day 3: cabbage, day 4: mushrooms, day 5: beets, day 6: garlic & onions and so on. If legumes are tolerated, lentils, chickpeas and red kidney beans have probiotics as well as blueberries, figs and prunes.

Gallbladder removed, what foods to avoid?

High fat, processed, fatty greasy foods, fatty meats, dairy, caffeine and alcohol.
Replace with nutrient dense antioxidant rich foods like lean meats, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds. When cooking your own food, increase quality of oils to avocado, olive and coconut oil.

How do we know if our meat is ractopamine free? This is allowed in USA but banned in 150 other countries?

Buying certified organic without the use of antibiotics or ractopamine
Supermarkets like whole foods require that producers do not use ractopamine. The safest way is to research the brand, choosing a local farmer that does not medicate animals or use additives in feed.

With regard to coffee mate sweeteners… I attribute my type 2 diabetes (insulin resistance) onset to these products. After stopping the use of these sweeteners, and learning to read the product labels I have gotten off of metformin and gone on to reduce my A1C to normal levels. I did find that reading the labels can be very complicated, but when I focused on the total carbs, it really helped me to set up my daily meal plans. Did I oversimplify? It seems that we all really need to consume foods like a diabetic, even if we currently do not have symptoms. Any other helpful hints to simplify food choices and keep us on track with our daily regimen? Thank you!

Great work! That is wonderful, and shows how modifying our diet can have a profound effect on our health. And yes, label reading can be very confusing at times. Focusing on total carbs is great, especially if its been working for you! My dad became diabetic over 10 years ago and my mom now eats the same way he does, she has lost weight and also, probably prevented herself from becoming diabetic. I would say moderation with everything, and walking after meals is very helpful in this condition. Choosing snacks that have a balance of fats, carbs and protein will also not spike your blood sugar and keep it more stable. In traditional Chinese medicine, diabetes is seen as an excess in the form of heat in the body so we want to make sure we are eating leafy greens. A diet full of minimally processed foods like whole grains, vegetables and fruits is also crucial.
