Eat by Listening to Your Body
It is vital to learn to listen to your body to give it the nutrients it requires at every moment of your life. You learn to eat by listening to your body by respecting your cravings, sense of smell, taste, and satisfaction with your food. Repairing your body requires very different nutrients from those it uses for cleansing itself. Animal foods are generally building while plant foods are generally cleansing. You could never guess at any given moment what you need – leave it to your body.
Depending on the functions your body is performing, the season of the year, and the level of stress you are under, your body switches between different types of energy production: using glucose or fats. Only your body knows what it different nutrients it requires for different types of energy production. Only your body knows the amounts of protein, fat, and carbohydrates it needs at any given time.
