Please – stop worrying about nutrients! Stop thinking about protein. Focus on eating an evidence-based diet – whole plant-based food. I found a post the other day from Howard Jacobson, PhD that I think is excellent. Jacobson co-wrote WHOLE: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition, with T. Colin Campbell. If you eat a varied plant-based diet, you don’t have to worry about individual nutrients.
If you’re still thinking that you can’t give up chicken, fish, beef, pork, butter, cheese, ice cream, yogurt and milk, consider this: My friend and colleague Richard Nongard said, “If you eat less of a bad thing… You simply die slower.” Hypnosis for weight loss can help you to create a large amount of no desire for those foods that do make you sick and fat. When you learn weight loss hypnosis it can be easy for you to desire the whole plant-based foods that help you to be healthy and slender. As a Seattle weight loss hypnosis specialist, I am happy to offer you a free hypnosis for weight loss consultation in one of my offices or online.
Stop Worrying about Nutrients
January 31, 2016 ~ Howard Jacobson
Are you sitting down? Because we need to explain something that almost no one acknowledges about nutrition: there is almost no direct relationship between the amount of a nutrient consumed at a meal and the amount that actually reaches its main site of action in the body—what is called its bioavailability.
The nutrient content of the foods we eat themselves varies far more than most of us realize. For example, beta-carotene content in different samples of the same food is known to vary three- to 19-fold, although it may be up to 40-fold or more, as was reported for peaches.
But wait—there’s more uncertainty! You may be surprised to learn that the three nutrients mentioned above can modify one another’s activities. Calcium decreases iron bioavailability by as much as 400 percent, while carotenoids (like beta-carotene) increase iron absorption by as much as 300 percent.
Whole is an eye-opening, paradigm-changing journey through cutting-edge thinking on nutrition, a scientific tour de force with powerful implications for our health and for our world.
Which brings us back to body wisdom. Our bodies have evolved to eat whole foods, and can therefore deal with the combinations and interactions of nutrients contained in those foods.
The bottom line? Eat lots of plant foods, stop worrying, and let your body take care of the details.
