One diet DOESN’T fit all

Are you eating the best diet for YOU?

Did you know that even though the food you are eating is healthy is not the same as it is healthy for you!

We are all different and unique and so is our diet. It seems quite natural for us that we have different appearances, well just as different as we are on the outside, we are on inside. There are no two people that have identical genes, fingerprints or anatomical parts. This means that the amount and type of nutrients our body’s metabolize and use are also unique.

The decisive factor is what you genetically are predisposed for.

You have inherited you nutritional needs

We all have different nutritional needs, which is the result of our forefather’s ability to adapt to their natural surrounding and environment. I.e. your specific fuel is measured after the foods that earlier were available.

Fx the foods originally available for people in India were very much different from the foods originally available for the people of Greenland.

Imagine that your cells engines are identical with car engines. Some cars are built to run on diesel, and others on petrol. Likewise the engines in your cells need their specific fuel: A specific mix made especially for you. If we put diesel in a car run on petrol the car will breakdown. Well the same happens in your cells and body, eventually they will breakdown if you repeatedly fill them with the incorrect fuel mix.

Therefore it is very important for you to attain which food type you are, i.e. which fuel mix is genetically best for you. Then you will have no doubt as to how your plate of food should look.

There are three fundamental food types:

• Broccoli type – the fuel mix contains primarily carbohydrates.

• Steak type – the fuel mix contains primarily proteins and fats

• Mix type – the fuels mix contains a 50 : 50 mix of broccoli and steak type’s

The energy you put in your body dictates the energy that comes out!

Your fuel is combined so you get the most out the energy you add to your body. The difference in the types lies in the proportion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates in the meals you eat. Some manage well with many carbohydrates, while many carbohydrates for others can work like a poison. Some do good with lots of fat and proteins, while other feel quite unwell.

There is a big difference in the digestion speed of carbohydrates. Some convert carbohydrates very quickly to energy or storage and therefore need a diet rich in fat and protein, such as meat, fish, nuts etc. Then there are others that convert carbohydrates more slowly and will function best on a diet containing more fruit, grains and seeds. 

A factor that plays a crucial role in the speed of carbohydrate digestion is climate

Science shows that Eskimos have an inherited the need for a diet where the main ingredient is animal fat and proteins and very little if any carbohydrate. The complete opposite of the diets of people living in tropical areas close to the Equator, they function best on a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and corn products, and small amounts of animal fat and protein. The people from warm and damp regions are simply not genetically designed to convert or use large amounts of animal fats and proteins. And people from the colder Northern hemispheres fx UK or Scandinavia are genetically not equipped to optimally function on a diet containing many carbohydrates, such as vegetarian foods.

If you are in doubt about what is classified as a carbohydrate, fat or protein you can use this rule of thumb: In nature fat and protein are often found together. If the food comes from an animal, such as cows, pigs, lamb, game, poultry, or fish you will find a higher content of fats and proteins. Foods such as vegetables, fruits and corn products generally contain a higher proportion of carbohydrate then fats and proteins. There are some exceptions, such as nuts, seeds and avocado, which contain a lot of fats.

”One size diet”

Have you ever thought about the different dietary advice, all with their version of “one size fits all diet”?

Fx eat 600 g fruit and veg a day, fruit only until12 midday, low carbs diet, low fat diet, eat after your blood type, pH diet, raw food, - are you confused? All of these diets have one thing in common they don’t encompass genetic differences. Remember that the cells biochemistry is different from one person to another and the fact that the, diet which creates health in one person can create the opposite in another.

”Food typology’s” principles are based on at least 100 years trials, experiences and science by doctors, biochemists, physiologists, clinical dieticians, dentists and psychologists, such as George Watson, Harold Kristal, William Kelley, William Wolcott, Roger Williams, Vilhjalmur Stefansson, Weston A. Price, Francis Pottenger, etc.

You are what you eat

Many diseases and imbalances are created by the foods we eat and can also be treated by foods

Foods don’t only contain fats, proteins and carbs, they also contain vitamins, minerals and other phytochemicals and other trace elements. All these nutrients are used by the body’s biochemical factory to among other things create enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, etc. And deficiency in one or more of these nutrients will initially affect the body’s control systems that constantly maintain equilibrium and thereby health. Long-term weakening of these control systems leads to a dysfunction in metabolism. But, first after prolonged dysfunction the symptoms begin to arise. Symptoms such as, often feeling under the weather, blood sugar problems, headaches, digestion problems, constipation, chronic pain, fatigue, frequent infections, obesity.
