ABC’s of Metabolic Eating

ABC’s of Metabolic Eating

In addition to one-of-a-kind metabolic assessments and customized “food first” prescription plans, the ABC’s of Metabolic Eating course will help you unlearn and re-think food and nutrition. It’s a simple-to-follow guide to understanding essential principals of healthy eating, developed by
Dr. Christine when she was pressed for time as a Primary Care Physician.

A: Avoid Ultra-Processed Ingredients

Achieving and maintaining health requires consistently avoiding foods made with refined grains, high-sugar content, seed oils and hydrogenated fats. They’re cheap, they’re everywhere, and they’re crafted to be addictive. Don’t worry, healthy alternatives are actually more satisfying. Our Food First Upgrades packet and coaching sessions will help you navigate the process of upgrading your convenience-food choices.

B: Build Meals with High-Quality Protein
Whole-food-based complete protein sources are packed with bio-active fats, vitamins, and minerals… all essential for life. Eating adequate amounts, in every meal, triggers the amazing hormonal cascade required to maintain and build your bones and muscles. And as you eat these foods, your GI tract releases hormones that regulate your appetite and make you feel satisfied.
C: Consume Carbs Consciously
Carbohydrates include a massive umbrella of foods… vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, dairy, grains, sweets and many ultra-processed foods. “Carbs” are the main factor that controls the internal chemical balance in your body. What you eat and when you eat makes a huge difference. Using state-of-the-art tools, testing, listening, and clinical experience, Dr. Christine can help you determine your Personal Carbohydrate Tolerance level.
D: Do Include Solid Fats
Decades of marketing propaganda have instilled fear about saturated-fat and cholesterol. While the quality of fats you eat is critical, the truth is: of all macronutrients, fat is the most efficient, long-lasting form of energy to fuel your body and control your hunger. Cholesterol is raw material needed for hormone production. High-quality fats also contain essential bioactive micronutrients that are not easily found elsewhere. They can make food deliciously satisfying.
E: Eat Salt with Water
Most of the salt in the Standard American Diet (SAD) comes from ultra-processed foods, and it’s not quality salt. When you eat whole foods and eliminate ultra-processed foods, your body may find itself low on salt. This leads to very unpleasant symptoms, like weakness, headaches, muscle cramps and fatigue. When adjusting your body’s chemistry, it’s important to eat enough high-quality salt to maintain proper hydration and avoid those symptoms.
F: Feast… and then Fast
Feasting is required for life. Fasting is required for a balanced life. Finding a balance between the two is key. Proper nourishment supports your body, while signaling that it’s safe to let go of body fat. Fasting helps the body maintain natural rhythms and hormonal balance. Dr. Christine’s expertise helps you tap into your body’s natural rhythms by adopting a lifestyle of feasting and fasting. Time without food can truly feel like food freedom, with astounding health benefits.
G: Get All the Essentials
Protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, and water… when following the ABC’s, you will naturally consume most of these nutrients in active forms and proper human ratios. Personalized nutrient supplementation may be recommended based on bloodwork and symptoms. Depending on your lifestyle, movement, sleep, sunlight, grounding, hobbies and community will also be encouraged. Because life is more than food.
