Holistic health coach Raven Zaal believes passionately in the concept of bio-individuality. In her practice as a coach and through her company, Healthy Life and Oils, she works with each of her clients to provide an individualized clean eating plan that guides their specific path to wellness.
Bio-individuality is the concept that food affects each person differently and that there is no single way of eating that is suitable for everyone. Each individual has unique nutritional needs determined by their age, gender, physical size, constitution, lifestyle and even ancestry.
Metabolism is another important component of bio-individuality, as each person converts their food into energy at differing rates. Different foods are even processed differently by each person, depending on their metabolic type. The metabolic types include protein, carbohydrate, or mixed. Being aware of metabolic type enables individuals to choose the foods that their body digests most efficiently.
When personal approaches to eating are practiced, individuals can forgo calorie counting and tracking fat and carbohydrate intake and instead focus on consuming foods that offer optimum nutrition for their body type. Benefits to eating this way include better digestion, increased energy and even a decrease in food cravings.
