Many people ask me how to transform the energy in food.  My response is always, “ACTIVATE IT!”  Here are some key steps to activate your food:

  1. The simple thing is breathing.  Oxygenation plays a key role in digestion, so therefore, oxygenate.
  2. Get up and move, move, move!
  3. Take a stroll.
  4. Avoid sedentary recreation.
  5. After the above four actions, realize you must maintain balance.  So then, make sure you have the proper rest cycle.  There’s an old saying “early to bed, early to rise.”

How to Eat Out with The Body Type System™ Series – Part 2

Welcome again to this part of the journey. The next series of tips come from a place of discovery. A child like discovery. REMEMBER TO PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD. One of the most vital experiences of childhood is to PLAY. Playing allows for discovery of new environments and allows the person to experiment with themselves safely to determine the true nature of their surroundings.

  1. Befriend the waiter let them know you have an allergy and are on a special diet. Ask them if it would be possible for their chef to accommodate your needs. As the patron typically they will accommodate you, NEVER BE AFRAID TO SIMPLY ASK!
  1. Request to see their nutrition and allergen guide detailing the ingredients in their dishes. Many places also offer this online.
  1. Go Ethnic – look for restaurants off of the beaten path- they tend to be very accommodating.
  1. Request to have your dressings and condiments on the side – that way you can verify the ingredients yourself!
  1. Make sure that you double check with your server to verify that there will be no cheese sprinkled on top of your food or butter cooked in your dish if you are unable to have animal proteins.
  1. Bring pocket-sized creamers and sweeteners for your drinks.
  1. Order a variety of side dishes if you are having issues finding an entree.
  1. Instead of going for fast food, run into your local grocery store and grab something to go!

Until next time, enjoy the journey!

How to Eat Out with The Body Type System™ Series – Part 1

Welcome to your journey in navigating nutrition and eating with the Body Type System™! One question that we commonly get around here is, “how in the world do I eat out?” The great news is that more and more restaurants are becoming sensitive to dietary restrictions and allergies. In this series we will explore some guidelines and suggestions on how to eat out specifically for your Body Type™ .

The most important thing to remember is – DONT STRESS ABOUT IT! If you mistakenly eat something off of your diet, reset, and understand that energy is neither created nor destroyed – when you consume something of a particular energy your body is going to produce that result. Meaning, if you eat something of a fire nature, your body will produce fire type energy. If you are one of the Body Types™ that should refrain from fire foods, then, you will have to reset with exercise or realize that your body now has the improper energy for your type and is going to run that program. You may only suffer a little bit (wink).

So, what would be suggested is to learn how to reset yourself with exercises or find a good physician (acupuncturist or herbalist) that knows how to balance out the energy that you just consumed. Either way, your body now has the instructions to produce the energy from the matter that you consumed. People have the idea that they can “flush” their system of impurities, but your body is constantly filtering out impurities and collecting them in the bladder and colon. How does it distinguish between the improper food, general impurities from the environment, and just the daily digestive process? Answer – it doesn’t. When you take your laxative or different things to purge, what you see when you evacuate completely both from a urine and bowel perspective, may look like it’s in the urine and stool but part of it is still in your system and your body has to do something with it. This is why we always use the adage “WHEN YOU ARE UPSET, RESET.” The best advice in Navigating Nutrition is to promote the nutritive value for your Body Type™ and avoid the toxic value in your specific Type equation.

Until next time, enjoy the journey!
