15: Macronutrient Variation- More Carbs In Summer
Are your brain and body in "summer" mode? Listen in below as I discuss how God's design for our bodies accounts for seasonal shifts in how many carbs we eat and how active we are. You won't want to miss this episode!
EPISODE 15: MACRONUTRIENT VARIATION- MORE CARBS IN SUMMER
(00:00) Welcome & Intro
(02:15) Summer fun isn’t always easy on the body.
Around this time of year, I usually eat more carbs, fast less, and feel a few pounds heavier. Year after year, I repeat this pattern!
(04:30) Do I just suck at discipline?
The rhythm of the planet we live on is in us- no wonder I am in "summer girl" mode.
Genesis 2:7 We are made from the very soil of the Earth.
(08:45) It's natural to have higher carb intake in the summer and higher fat intake in the winter, because of the foods that are naturally available. Carb cycling just makes sense.
(10:00) Convenience + excess + artificial ingredients= no bueno for our health.
Our modern food culture is in perpetual "summer" mode- with constant availability of all fruit (even when not in season) AND processed carbs at our fingertips at all times.
(12:45) Even when I'm eating more carbs, I still stick with my Heck Yeah Carbs (see podcast episode 13 here).
