"Love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your mind, heart and with your entire being" (Deut 11:13, Amp).
The love that God has for you and your love for Him should compel you to live a healthy life. Here is a good place to begin by getting to know the type of food that your body loves, not craves, but loves.
- Protein types live to eat: Too many carbs make protein types feel sleepy an hour after their meal. Make your protein portion the size of your whole hand.
- Carb types eat to live: Too much protein make carb types feel sluggish and have difficulty concentrating after a meal. Make your carb portion the size of two fists.
- Mixed types are a combination of both: Eat one palm of protein and one-half fist of starchy carbs or three handfuls of non-starchy carbs.
Start out your healthy diet as a mixed type and keep a journal of how you feel after each meal. Remember....
"I am God's workmanship and a new person in Jesus Christ so that I can do the good things He planned for me long ago"(Eph 2:10 paraphrased).
