A Simple and Effective Way of Experiencing Healthy Body Composition

In keeping with our goal of offering more frequent flash sales this year, for a few days or until earmarked supplies last, we are passing along some savings on our organic plant protein blend:

Organic Plant Protein Blend

Each serving offers 19 grams of easily digested organic plant protein and less than a gram of naturally occurring sugar.  

For those who experience some degree of metabolic syndrome as a root cause of carrying excess fat tissue, please know that the most simple and effective way to transform your body composition is to increase your intake of foods rich in healthy protein and decrease your intake of refined carbohydrates.

Keeping total carbohydrates to around 100 grams or less per day is almost a guaranteed way of getting and staying lean, taking unnecessary stress off your heart, lungs, liver, GI tract, and weight-bearing joints, and reducing systemic inflammation that many people experience due to excessive intake of refined carbohydrates.

For those who have recurrent or chronic aches and pains with no obvious cause, my first suggestion is to track your carbs and keep them to around 100 grams or less per day.

When you do feel like carb-rich foods, it's best to go with those that provide the greatest overall health benefit relative to gram of carbohydrate, taking into account fiber, antioxidant, and fat content.  Examples of carb-rich foods that can help satisfy cravings for comfort foods but that still allow us to keep our overall intake of carbs low are berries, peas, and popcorn.

For those who appreciate suggestions on specific choices, here is a short list of foods that promote healthy body composition and low systemic inflammation:

1.  Fish like anchovies, sardines, and salmon
2.  Organic eggs from free range birds
3.  Flesh meats from ethically raised animals
4.  Greens like lettuce, broccoli, and asparagus
5.  Mushrooms
6.  Berries
7.  Peas
8.  Potatoes (best to have after being physically active)

The common link between all of the foods listed above is that none are rich in both fat and carbohydrates.  This is one of the keys to staying metabolically healthy:  You don't want to eat large quantities of both fat and carbohydrates at the same time, as doing so will force your body to store extra calories as adipose tissue.
