Macronutrient Balance

An Inner Shift

Please watch this even if you are well acquainted with this term. Macronutrient imbalance can cause serious self-sabotage!

What Happens If You Don't Eat All 3 Of These Macronutrients?

The most common consequence is that your body will respond to this lack of nutrition by screaming at you in the form of cravings.

 

However it cannot communicate with you in the way that would be most useful. If only we started craving avocados when we were low on healthy fat!

 

No, what it is most likely to do is to scream for carbohydrates - because it is in an energy emergency...

 

...and the type of carbohydrates that give you the fastest energy hit...

 

  • Sugar in any form, but especially when mixed with fat (maybe because the fat feels calming) 

  • Desserts

  • White flour products

 

Can you see how ensuring you get all three sources of nourishment in the first half of the day can prevent sugar and junk cravings later in the day?
