The nutritional philosophy and key principles of Paul Jennings Fitness - www.pauljenningsfitness.co.uk | info@pauljenningsfitness.co.uk

1. Eat Natural and Clean

Go organic where possible. Grass fed beef or lamb, Oily fish, vegan protein powder, unsweetened almond, coconut or hemp milk.

Top Tip - The following foods in particular contain the most amount of pesticides so going organic with these foods is essential; Celery, strawberries, apples, blueberries, bell peppers, spinach, cherries, kale and Collard Greens.

--------------------------------------------------

2. Reduce Inflammation

Increasing omega 3 intake will decrease inflammation in the body. Oily fish, chia seeds, nuts and seeds form part of this group.

Low fat diets are not the route to good health as fat plays an essential part in our body’s ability to function efficiently. Not only that, it is vital for a healthy weight.

Top Tip - If weight loss is one of your goals them omega 3 is a must.

--------------------------------------------------

3. Eliminate Gut Irritants

Eliminate Wheat, Gluten, excess Grains, Sugars, processed Dairy and Soy from your diet. These can all cause damage to our delicate gut lining.

Increase good bacteria in your gut with foods such as Kombucha, Sauerkraut and Kimchee.

--------------------------------------------------

4. Balance Blood Sugar Levels

Replace high sugar fruits, particularly exotic fruits and sweets with Apples and Berries. Include essential fats such as Omega 3 and 6, proteins and fibre. This will assist in regulating blood sugar levels and will stop energy peaks and troughs.

Top Tip - Adding a teaspoon of cinnamon into your breakfast will also help balance blood sugar levels.

--------------------------------------------------

5. Reduce toxicity throughout the body

Reducing toxins in the body that has been accumulated and digested by the foods we consume and the environment is vital for hormone balance, which in turn will have a large impact on your weight management.

Our body’s hold onto toxins in fat cells so if weight loss is one of your priorities, then reducing toxicity is essential.

Toxins are also present in household products, skin care, make up, plastic packaging and much more. Supporting our body’s toxin eliminating organs such as the liver, skin and kidneys will also reduce our toxicity.
