Sandra Giraldo here with the second video to answer your questions and first I want to say Thank you for watching video 1. If you didn’t have a chance to watch Video #1, check below this video for the link. My membership program where you will receive weekly Healthy Eating Guides has been created thinking of you and you can be sure I’m doing my best to deliver a plan that’s easy to follow and that’s going to make your life easier and healthier.
As you know I’m here because my health struggles have started me on this journey where I’ve been in your shoes and I had to figure out everything by myself. During that time I wish I had somebody to hold my hand providing me with support. Now that’s become my goal, to be the help that I wish I had.
When I was gathering all your questions the first thing I noticed is that we all have very similar concerns like how much should I eat, how many calories, what diet should I follow, are plants a source of protein.
There is too much information out there, every second a new diet book is on the market or a new study that is saying all the opposite things than the study before about certain foods comes out every day. Low carb, low fat, eat eggs, don’t eat eggs, kale is fantastic, next day kale is poison, I wonder how we can keep up with all this.
The most important thing here is to know we’re all different we all thrive in different ways, what works for some doesn’t work for others, when you learn how to listen to your body you will know exactly how to treat it.
Calories? It all depends not only your goals but your lifestyle, an athlete has different calorie requirements than somebody who spends most of the day on the couch or sitting in an office desk.
Do you want to lose weight or gain weight?…. there are guides that can give you an idea but at the end it’s not much about the amount of calories but about the quality of them, same as portion control, when you eat foods that agree with you, that don’t spike your insulin and decrease inflammation portions are not the main thing we have to focus on.
Now protein, we’re way too worried about protein. It’s like an obsession, protein is extremely important, we need to consume protein in every meal, protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, skin, and blood.
But it doesn’t mean we have to go crazy with it, too much protein can be harmful too, everything in moderation. Protein is a protein it doesn’t matter the source animal or plant based its just a group of amino acids, again what’s important here is balance and eat a variety of them.
I have two tips for you Today. The first one: Eat protein such as free range chicken or beans, fiber as vegetables and good quality fat like avocados in every meal.
Second tip: Make your salad the main dish and as like mister Michael Poland says: Eat real food, mostly plants not too much.
My plan is suitable for vegan, vegetarians as well as for people that prefer to eat animal sources of protein, they’re balanced, well combined and easy, I assure you that following a plan is not only going to save you time and money but is going to help you to take control of your health.
