I love seeing clients come in for personalised nutritional advice, returning just a few weeks later with a much better understanding of how the food they eat really makes them feel. Whether that is more energetic, with less bloating and fewer mood swings; it all comes down to how your physiology and genetics respond to different foods.
Let’s get this straight, as cliche as it might sound – there is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ diet. And there way of eating that suits everyone. In the beginning, trial and error is often key. You might be surprised at the foods that help your mind and body to thrive!
Personalising your nutrition means considering the following:
- Your goals – What is it you want to achieve? Do you want to lose weight, regain your energy, balance your hormones or improve digestion etc?
- Past & family history – Do you or any of your family suffer from chronic disease or have any pre-existing conditions? What symptoms are you currently experiencing? Do you have trouble sleeping?
- Lifestyle – How much exercise do you do each week? Are you suffering from stress? Do you need a simple to follow meal plan for a busy family?
- Allergies – Do you have any known (or suspected) allergies or intolerances to food?
We are all unique, with different environmental influences that impact genetic expression. Even twins may not have the same reaction to foods, as they have each been exposed to different environmental stimuli. Consider your dietary needs to be as unique as your fingerprint, with huge implications for your present and future health.
