Spoiler alert! Fad diets DO NOT WORK. I don’t mean at all, they usually do for the 2-4 weeks you do them but long term they offer nothing for you and your unique beautiful body. No matter what your health goals are, lose weight, build muscle, overall lower inflammation, there are many things to consider before creating a plan.
One huge component is each person’s basal metabolic rate This rate helps to get an idea of caloric requirements based on your body composition and individual goals.
You also have to take many other components of your health and body into account. That means injuries, food intolerance's, allergies, diseases, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances etc! These little buddies of yours will all encourage alterations in nutrition specific to you. Especially if they are stalling your progress!
Allergies and food intolerance's are more than an inconvenience. Some can cause inflammation in the gut, which then results in and a domino effect of health issues. Dominos may sound fun until you learn that it can cause a much less fun and much more yucky thing called “leaky gut”.
With leaky gut, you may experience symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, bloating, skin issues, joint pain, migraines, the list goes on and on.
So don’t go shooting yourself in the foot (or the gut?) GET TESTED!
The NutriMD team tests your basal metabolic rate, hormone imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, toxins, allergies and sensitivities to help you determine what foods will be most and least beneficial to you, as well as discuss medication. Certain medications can deplete nutrients, cause weight gain, water retention, etc.
Essentially, we test all things that could be working against you even if you think you’re doing everything right. And you might be! But it might only be right for somebody else.
