As we head into the thick of New Year’s Resolutions season we challenge you to think about your resolutions a bit differently this year.  Rather than imposing restrictions upon yourself, (e.g. what you’re NOT going to do, or what you’re GIVING UP) think about what you WILL DO for yourself to make yourself happier and healthier in 2020 and beyond.  This positive, affirmative mindset applies to nutrition. 

So often the solution to the resolution of “Losing Weight” revolves around eating less.  But, what if we flip the prescription to eating the right quality of food, the correct composition of meals and in the appropriate intervals of time?  

This summary of a  2017 narrative review presented on concluded that the calorie / energy imbalance model that has been recommended in popular diet guidelines for years may not be a real, practical or scientifically sound solution to the obesity epidemic. Rather, the scientific evidence supports an alternative narrative that conceives it is the quality and composition of food that dictates the body’s hormonal response to it, not the quantity consumed and energy expended exclusively.

“diets containing an identical number of calories but varying slightly in composition can lead to substantially different serum insulin and glucose profiles over the course of the day...refined, non-sugary foods such as breads, cereals, pastas, and low-fat dairy are obesogenic while unrefined fatty foods such as nuts, oils, and whole dairy are not.”

Science is the basis of Dr. Barry Sears’ “The Zone Diet”. He has spent over 40 years researching how the foods we eat impact our hormones and the expression of our genes. Our Nutrition Coaching at Bell City CrossFit is centered in the Zone methodology and the consistent, lasting results our Members have achieved by following this model is undeniable.
