Obviously, this does not apply to everyone, but for the plant eaters of the world, getting the hang of a new lifestyle can be challenging. Even though most books on nutrition will give you a general guideline on how to eat, they sometimes word reasons too pedantically.
From a nutrition-based perspective, proteins and iron need to be a priority. Carbohydrates are short-term energy and are excellent when it comes to it. Fats come in many varieties, but generally speaking, fats from vegetables, seeds, nuts and fruits are good and everything else is less good.
A person who consumes an appropriate amount of carbohydrates, exercises, gets vitamins and stays hydrated can still feel terrible on a regular basis if they have a nutrition imbalance.
Consider consuming most of the carbs for the day for breakfast, reasonable proportions of fats, carbs and proteins for lunch (or breakfast if you don’t eat lunch) and then a dinner high in protein.
Nutrition is also about appropriate timing, as odd as it sounds. Everyone has heard eating before bed can be detrimental, but not everyone knows protein usually can be eaten late without repercussions unless you have acid reflux. Sometimes the problem is what you have with your snack that wreaks havoc within.
Mixing carbs and protein has more potential to make you gassy and more acidic than if you consume the carbs first, let them digest (because they only take about twenty minutes to an hour), and then eat the proteins. If there’s no time for that, ditch the carb and just eat the protein. It takes longer to digest protein and the energy is distributed more evenly long-term when compared to carbohydrates.
Fats are similar to protein except that they can be consumed with either protein or carbohydrates. Even if the foods are “healthy”, too much of a good thing can be harmful. Balance fats, protein and carbohydrates for the best results possible.
Feeling like poop sucks pretty badly. Consider making nutrition your number one health-related priority. Balance the day with energy from the varying sources at the appropriate times and feel better. Much better.
