What does Manuel’s Diet look like?
Manuel’s current diet consists of about 2,000 calories per day broken up into six meals. His specially designed menu includes a wide variety of meals including egg-white omelets, fresh salads, chicken fajitas and fish fillet in a bed of spring greens.
One of the most important additions to his diet is a large amount of OmegaRx high concentrate Omega 3 fish oil. This is critical as it is hard to lose weight and control appetite with inflammation present. Manuel takes enough, to keep his Omega 3: Omega 6 ratio (EPA:AA) at it’s ideal when measured in blood tests.
Most people with high levels of inflammation need to take about .5 – 1 gram EPA+DHA per kilo of body weight per day.
This is the dose required by many to increase omega 3 to therapeutic levels.
In conjunction with this an anti-inflammatory diet is a must. Lean meat (grass fed and free range to eliminate inflammatory fats). Lots of colourful vegetables – high in anti-inflammatory anti-oxidants and polyphenols. They also promote the growth of good gut bacteria which in turn promote fat loss. Moderate amount of high anti-oxidant fruit like berries. Good fats – olive oil, avocado, some nuts like almond and macadamia. Cut down or cut out grain foods – these increase inflammation, acidity, blood sugar levels, and insulin levels, and they are high in inflammatory anti-nutrients. Also cut out chemically altered fats such as those found in margarine (inter-esterified fat) and deep fried food (trans fats) and commercial baking, and also oils high in Omega 6 which promote inflammation (soy, sunflower, safflower, and vegetable oils)
