Healthy Eating Focus 2012 Week #8

Welcome to week eight of my ten week Healthy Eating Series, to Kick off 2012!

To date, you have learned the importance of slowing down your eating, eating in a relaxed setting and meal cadence. You’ve also learned how all three of those things will boost your metabolism.

Before getting into this week’s Healthy Eating Focus, lets recap your first 7 psychological and nutritional focuses.

Focus #1 – Eating Speed

Focus #2 – Relaxed Eating

Focus #3 – Eating Rhythm

Focus #4 – Pleasure From Food

Focus #5 – Eating for Nourishment

Focus #6 – Awareness at Meals

Focus #7 – Quality of Food

Healthy Eating Focus #8  – Macronutrient Balance

There are 4 macronutrients and all of them play a vital role in developing and maintaining a healthy body.

These macronutrients are:

  • Protein

  • Fats

  • Carbohydrates

  • Water

It is important to maintain a good ratio of protein, fat, and carbohydrates.  As well as, consume an adequate amount of water.

An imbalance can lead to:

  • Fat craving

  • Carb craving

  • Binge eating

  • Mood issues

  • Energy issues

  • Inability to lose weight

If you don’t get enough protein in your diet, this can lead to:

  • Sugar and carb cravings

  • Low energy

  • Low immunity

  • Low mood

  • Inability to build muscle

  • Inability to lose weight

  • Decreased ability to cope with stress

This week, make sure you are getting a good amount of healthy fats, healthy carbs, and protein.  Last, and certainly not least, make sure you are consuming a lot of water throughout the day!

Please feel free to pass this valuable information to your friends, family, and co-workers!

In Good Health,
