So What is a Healthy Diet
A good diet should provide your body with the nutrients it needs in the proper quantities.
A balanced and moderate diet is crucial to developing a healthy lifestyle.
Food provides seven essential substances your body needs: carbohydrates that provide energy; vitamins promote health; protein aids in growth and repairing the body…
Fat that protects muscles and internal systems from harmful collisions, functions as an energy storage system…
Fat helps maintain proper temperature by insulating the body; minerals to maintain body systems; fiber to assist in digestion and the processing of waste materials; and water that accounts of 70% of the human body.
Low GI/Low Carbohydrate Diet
Glycemic Index (GI) is calculated on a scale from 1 – 100 and measures the effect of food on our blood-glucose levels.
When we eat, our blood sugar levels increase leaving us full and energised.
Research has shown high GI carbohydrate foods causes our insulin to rapidly spike which results in a short energy burst before dropping, leaving you hungry and tired.
This is also damaging to our arteries, blood vessels and will result in weight gain.
Low GI carbohydrate foods on the other hand, sustain you over a longer period, leaving you feeling fuller for longer.
Eating a low GI diet means you are less likely to ‘snack’ on bad foods that are responsible for weight gain, tiredness and are generally unhealthy for you and your body.
Controlling your sugar intake is an important factor in achieving weight loss and consistent energy levels throughout the day.
The low GI/low carbohydrate diet is most recommended for women trying to achieve maximum weight loss.
High Protein Diet
Much of our body is protein-based including our muscles, brain cells, skin, hair and nails.
A high-protein diet leaves you feeling fuller for longer and provides you with your daily energy needs.
Protein is the most important factor when exercising in order to tone.
You want to increase muscle mass as it is the key factor when it comes to building and repairing muscles.
Protein-rich foods including chicken, beef, lamb, fish and legumes release amino acids which when digested, are used to make new proteins to give us our energy sources.
We recommend this diet if you want to achieve quick weight loss and fast lean muscle gain.
Many people are choosing this diet as a healthy lifestyle option.
Vegetarian diets eliminate meat products and in some cases seafood and all animal by-products (vegan).
It is important when choosing to eat vegetarian, that you supplement your diet with protein and omega-rich foods including soy products, legumes, eggs, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
A well-balanced vegetarian diet has many health benefits and can reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and some types of cancer.
However if not carefully planned can have the opposite effect on the body.
