Is it OK to eat late at night?There is a common misconception about eating late in the evenings. Your body’s ability to gain weight is mainly about what you eat and how much, not WHEN you eat. If you typically rely on the dinner meal as being the biggest meal of the day you should probably allow your body more than three hours for digestion before going to sleep.
How do I motivate myself to keep eating healthy?Once you have the tools and the education of health and nutrition at your disposal, you will wonder why you did not engage in healthier food choices earlier. The most important motivational factor for me is simply in the results I’m getting. I have more energy, less brain fog, better digestion, mental clarity, and quite simply healthier!
Is dairy good for you?NO! Dairy is a mucus forming substance that is meant for baby calves to grow into adulthood. It is filled with hormones and casein, which can cause major amounts of inflammatory issues. Dairy should not be a part of a human beings diet.
Is caffeine bad for you?Yes! Caffeine is a stimulate, and stimulation of the brain by caffeine is similar to the reaction caused by cocaine and heroin use. I know it sounds crazy! It is true. Caffeine increases your heart rate, your blood pressure, and tightens the muscles. When to much caffeine is absorbed it can lead to chronic adrenal fatigue, and that we do not want! Caffeine is extremely addictive as well. Getting more fruits and veggies in your diet is the kind of energy source and fuel we want to give our bodies.
What are empty calories?Empty calories are calories without nutrients. Most acidic and processed foods contain empty calories. There are also immediate problems with consuming empty calories like sugar in the form of refined sugar, and there is no water and fiber there to regulate the uptake. All the bad press you’ve heard about “sugar” has to do with refined sugar, not whole fruits and vegetables and the sugar in them.
