FOODS- The element that fuels all!

We are made of billions of cells. These cells are extremely complex and intricate machines and each one will behave as its own organism. They are nourished by a fluid that is composed of nutrients, or whatever it is that you ingest or introduce in your body.

Inside each cell is the Nucleus, or central part, that contains the main source of life called DNA. This DNA is all contained in the organelles know as Chromosomes and here is where the genes are stored or located.

Genes will express through switches and pathways that will turn on and off depending on the messages that cells receive internally and externally. There are many different ways a gene is turned on or off. One very important influence is through the chemicals and nutrients that we ingest.

What we eat, will in many ways influence gene expression in a positive or a negative way. there is a lot we do not know, but there is a lot that has been learned through observation and also experimental data obtained through research.

Drug companies have learned to manipulate gene expression and pathways that favor a certain result or another. Food can create similar changes, but not as targeted.

So, yes we are what we eat. In many ways your gene expression will determine how you look and feel. It can even lead to a cancer if uncontrolled stimulation occurs, or if suppressor genes are not activated.

So what is it that we know about food and how can we eat the best food we can to get the best results that our genetic makeup can give us.

This is a complex matter and in the near future, we will be able to determine the best foods as an individual. What is good for you, may not be so good for me and vice a versa. Eventually, we will be able to do a genetic test that will allow you to understand how to loose weight , prevent diabetes, prevent and control cardiovascular disease and even improve your overall condition.

So what about now. what is there, that we can do and which diet can be followed to try and get the best results our genes can give us. After all, we cant change our genetic make up yet, but we can wake dormant genes and promote good gene activation while suppression others that could be counterproductive.

The picture above is a give away of where I am going with this and you may not be surprised. Studies done over and over have pointed to a combination that most resembles the so called mediterranean diet. Oils, Nuts, fish and legumes/vegetables. Yes no sugar and limiting carbs to only complex carbs.

A very strong message given by the healthcare industry is to avoid processed foods. Foods that are altered by man and made into something that does not occur naturally, usually is bad for our bodies. Either, our bodies have no idea what to do with it, or the chemicals to make it last or look better, or taste better, affects how are genes react to it.

Usually, anything canned, or boxed or that has many ingredients, is best to avoid or limit its consumption. This is repeated over an over, I know that, but it is true. There are some food that are classified as carcinogens. But why are we still serving them. Well usually is money. Powerful companies behind them, that can manipulate our system and politicians as you might have seems in some well known documentaries. That is a different topic. Lets focus on how to eat well.

Not included in this picture is water and water is so important that I can not leave it out. We need almost a liter a day just to eliminate toxins. Our body is composed over 60 percent of water. When we drink less water, we alter the elimination of toxins generated by the cell activities. This in turn will be in contact with the cells that in turn react and try to protect themselves from damage, by activating pathways and genes that may not result in good outcomes. Water is very important as a vehicle to deliver nutrients to cells and organs in general. Soft drinks, coffee or teas do have water in smaller amounts. They can be counted as sources of water, but we must drink pure water to at least have enough to eliminate toxins and allow all body processes to occur.

What about organic food, or not. Well, yes, you want to make sure that your food is not altered by man or pesticides or chemicals that make it grow faster or prettier. This is the same issue that processed food brings. We are the result of many centuries of evolution, but the basic genes are still within you. A genetic test can be tracked to your ancestors in the beginning of the world. We are complex machines, but we have a code that defines all the different processes and the way we react to foods is just another example of that.

How to start then, living a healthier life and eating better. Where do you begin improving your healthy lifestyle changes. Pay attention to the foods you eat. Dont just drive to a fast-food chain and buy whatever tastes good and then eat it. Take the time to keep your complex machine (your body) working at its best. You would not give your car bad gasoline or oil. Your body should not be any different. IT is not only to try an live longer, but to try and live a better quality of life. This recipe is not a guarantee to live longer, but to live a better quality life and to try and prevent things like cancer and other ailments of the modern society like obesity. Medicine can only take you so far. Your body can repair much of the damage on its own if you provide the tools and the environment for it.

Start today and focus on the legumes, salads, fruits, white meats, fish nuts and oils. Look for good quality foods and do not settle for less. Eat in moderation. How much is too much. You should never feels stuffed, but just satisfied. Do eat small frequent meals rather than few large meals. It helps keep the insulin and gauchos levels steady.

What about sugars and carbs. As I said, try to eliminate most if not all. If you must eat carbs, then focus on eating the complex carbohydrates. Sugar, is not necesary to live. A small amount would not hurt you on occasion.

Will adress probiotics in my next article. If you have questions just ask.

Start today and focus on the legumes, salads, fruits, white meats, fish nuts and oils. Look for good quality foods and do not settle for less. Eat in moderation. How much is too much. You should never feels stuffed, but just satisfied. Do eat small frequent meals rather than few large meals. It helps keep the insulin and gauchos levels steady.

What about sugars and carbs. As I said, try to eliminate most if not all. If you must eat carbs, then focus on eating the complex carbohydrates. Sugar, is not necesary to live. A small amount would not hurt you on occasion.

Will adress probiotics in my next article. If you have questions just ask.
