Ready to take charge of your health and melt body fat for good?

If so, before you hop onto the latest diet that you find available, you may want to look at your overall approach to eating in general…

If the truth is told, many people aren’t eating properly at all and this is part of the reason they don’t see the success they’re after.  It’s not just about what you eat, but how you eat as well that counts.

When it comes right down to it, you might want to consider going back to the habits you had with your diet when you were a baby.

Baby’s not only eat intuitively, they do many things that are right for fostering a low body fat percentage.

Let me show you why this is…

 

Favour Frequent Feeding…

The very first reason to turn to baby’s for guidance when it comes to your nutrition is because as mentioned above, they eat intuitively and often.

They eat when they’re hungry and stop when they’re full.

In today’s world, with the busy pace of day to day life, you may only be eating 2-3 times per day. Is this ideal for maintaining an optimal metabolism and nutrient delivery?

Certainly not. Slowing down and stopping to eat more frequently – 4-6 times per day, could assist with keeping your energy levels up so that you can accomplish more throughout the day while also boosting your nutrient absorption.

Plus, if you go for hours and hours without eating, there’s a much higher chance you’ll start to become ravenous and this will only increase your risk of binging on too much food, or the wrong type of food when you do finally eat!

More frequent meals, just as baby’s do, means that you will maintain maximum control over what you put into your mouth.

How Well Do You Chew…

The gym is not the only place you need to be focused on using the right technique. You also need to take a good look at your chewing technique as well!

Ideally, you should be chewing your food 40 times before swallowing for proper nutrient breakdown and absorption.

Most people chew their food just 4 times before shuttling it down their digestive system. Don’t swallow prematurely!

In fact, in one study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers noted that when comparing obese subjects to lean subjects, obese subjects had a lower rate of chews per 1 gram of food they put into their body, which could have resulted in a lower total absorption of vitamin & mineral intake from their daily diet.

Those who averaged 40 chews rather than 15 before swallowing ingested 11.9% more than those who had the lower frequency.

When looking at baby’s, we feed them pureed baby food, which is already partially digested. This means they get the absolute best nutrient absorption, increasing their nutritional status.

Unless you want to start eating baby food yourself, it’s time to get chewing.

 

Is Liquid Food The Solution?

You came into this world surviving solely on liquid nutrition – your mother’s breast milk or baby formula depending on what your mother choose to use.

It supplied you with all the vital nutrients you needed and allowed for a high rate of nutritional absorption to support your growing body.

Has your digestive system changed all that much since then?

One could argue that turning towards liquid food might just be the superior solution as far as nutrition is concerned these days.

While you may not want to change all your meals over to liquids as solid foods do tend to have a higher satiety factor, it is something to consider supplementing your diet with.

Liquid meals are digested more readily and will allow the nutrients to be put to use immediately.

So have a look at your diet.

Is there room for improvement? Could you take a page from a baby’s book and start shifting your diet to match their nutritional principles?
