That’s what is needed to maintain longterm health. But it is also a lifestyle that is right for your bio-individuality and takes into account where you are in life.
A recent study reported in the journal Cell and covered in the Independent, showed that
“Different individuals showed vastly different responses to the same food, even though their own responses remained the same day to day.
"There are profound differences between individuals — in some cases, individuals have opposite responses to one another," Segal explained.
The researchers said the findings show that tailoring meal plans to individuals' biology may be the future of dieting and the study yielded many surprises for individuals. One example involves a middle-aged woman who tried and failed with many diets. Tests showed that her blood sugar levels spiked after eating tomatoes — indicating it is a poor diet choice for her since blood sugar has been associated with heart problems, obesity and diabetes — but since she didn't know this, she was eating them as part of her healthy diet plans several times a week.”
And you wonder why there are so many diets out there. They all work for someone but not necessarily for you.
While there are some universal commonalities for most people – eating real food, exercise, community, a sense of purpose – the specifics for each individual is unique. Finding that right mix is what I can help you with as a Health Coach.
By exploring where your health is now, looking at what your needs and goals are, and exploring different options in all aspects of your life – you can get the healthy lifestyle you deserve.
I know my health is better than 24 months ago, but there is still room for improvement. I still struggle to get the exercise into my weekly routine and if I want to run a cross country marathon next March, I really have to do something about it – and fast. Sometimes it’s about fulfilling a commitment, so if you haven’t yet liked my facebook page, once I get 100 likes I’m committed to the race.
