I explain that tracking intake has a lot more to do with the big picture of nutrition. You learn not only what your macronutrients (protein, fats, and carbohydrates) and calories look like, but also your micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that literally run the show, affecting how you feel and what you crave.
At Craving4Health Integrative Nutrition, personalized nutrition support is provided exclusively via telehealth. In addition to special rates and discounts extended, I continue to offer a sliding payment scale. Health should never be a privilege, and disease prevention should not be viewed as a luxury.
Insulin is the fat storage hormone. The more you consume processed sugars and starches, the more insulin will be produced and the more you will want to eat. In addition, the more you consume in one setting, the more likely that large amounts of insulin will be released to counteract glucose. The end result is typically increased body fat accumulation, often around the mid-section, known as a “muffin top.”
Just as there’s no one-size nutrition plan, there’s no one grocery shopping experience for everyone. This is where the benefits of mindfulness surface yet again. Feeling connected to your preferences can help create a shopping and meal planning process that works with your needs, rather than against them.
