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!
