Macronutrients and Micronutrients

What are they and what do I need them for?

We all know that we eat in order to provide our bodies with energy so that we can perform our daily tasks.

Every single cell in our body also has ‘a daily to do list’, which differs between cells. However without energy and nutrition, these cells are unable to perform their tasks and our bodies will not perform optimally. Macronutrients are the energy providers for our cells and fuel for our bodies. The macronutrients are carbohydrate, protein and fat.

Alcohol is also a high energy provider (see table 1), but it does not provide any essential nutrition that the three macronutrients do. Alcohol is classified as non-essential, as the body does not require it for survival…

Is Low-Carb eating the answer to Obesity?

The latest stats are in and they don’t paint a pretty picture of New Zealanders, or of any other nation for that matter.

A review of more than 1,700 studies covering 188 countries from 1980 to 2013 failed to find a single country that had been able to reverse the worrying obesity trend that has resulted in 2.1 billion people being either overweight or obese. That’s nearly 1 out of every 3 people in our global community. Back in 1980 this figure was 857 million, or 20% of the global population.

New Zealand come out above Australia for our rates of both adult and childhood obesity. Not something we should be proud of. In New Zealand 2 out of every 3 adults are either overweight or obese – that’s an estimated 2.2 million Ki…

Melatonin – The answer for a Good Night's Sleep

If you have sleeping problems, you’ve probably heard of melatonin.

It’s the hormone your body makes every night to kick start sleep. It’s also marketed as a supplement, to top up your natural melatonin – the idea being, this will give you a better night’s sleep. But taking a hormone is not without risks. Before you consider a melatonin supplement, read on.

Melatonin is activated when it’s dark. Remember, part of your sleep plan is to pull the curtains to make your bedroom really dark. For more information see Healthy Choices Issue No.2 “Are You Getting Enough?” That’s because the darkness signals your body to release melatonin, sometimes called the ‘hormone of darkness’.

Melatonin is released from your pinea…

Staying Sharp – Nutrients to support Brain Health

A healthy brain depends on the right nutrition.

The brain is vastly complex and made up of an estimated 10 billion interconnected neurons which, together with the spinal cord, control every function in the body - from breathing, to learning and memory, to walking.

Signals from the brain to the body are carried along nerve fibres to neurons. As we age, this system can degenerate. But research shows a healthy diet and lifestyle can help us stay sharp.

Why you should choose a Ketogenic Diet

With so many diets and weight loss programmes on offer, how do you know which one to choose?

A ketogenic diet switches the body from burning glucose to burning fat, ensuring muscle mass and metabolic rate are maintained.

Obviously there are personal preferences to take into consideration, for example, some people are happy to live on one meal a day with two liquid ‘shakes’ making up their other meals. Other people like to actually eat food at each meal. Then there are nutritional and health considerations, for example, some diets have extremely low calories or are based on eating one single food, like the Grapefruit Diet which are not nutritionally sound and may even be detrimental for people with fragile health.

Diet - History over the years

For nearly 2.5 million years man lived in the Paleolithic era and ate a Paleolithic diet.

This diet was full of vegetables and meat with seasonal berries, seeds and nuts. The start of the agricultural age (approximately 10,000 years ago) saw grains being planted and cultivated. The consumption of carbohydrates rose very slowly until the start of the industrial revolution 250 years ago. The industrial revolution enabled crops to be planted and processed on a large scale and food manufacturing became big business, producing lots of processed food and consumable products.

We started getting fatter. The schematic below highlights the number of generations adapted to eating within each of the ages. Unfortunately the extremely fast change in the types of food and food-like prod…

Nutritional support for happy, balanced children

Food additives such as artificial preservatives, colours, flavours and sweeteners have been found to affect children’s wellbeing.

Childhood is a happy, carefree time but not all children are full of joy – some suffer from changeable moods, spells of high and low energy and are easily distracted.
This picture – a challenge to parents – can affect children of any age but commonly takes hold at around 3 years of age. Boys are more frequently affected than girls.

Here are some steps you can take towards your child’s happiness:

Make sure your child is eating plenty of fresh frui…

Re-Calibrate your body for Optimal Health

The human body is truly wondrous.

From the enormous growth and neurological development that takes us from birth to fully functioning adults, to the continual monitoring of our surroundings by the immune system and so much more, the human body is a highly intelligent organism.

So why then, do we suffer from disease and illness? To be honest, in most cases it’s not a design fault of the body but much more likely a result of our environment – that is things such as diet, lifestyle, daily habits, increased stress, poor sleep, pollution, suboptimal nutrients in modern foods and lack of regular physical activity.
Over the dec…
