Morphs & Macros

‘Morphs’ in this post refers to ‘body types’ (not shape-shifting). However if you happen to get through this and end up shifting unwanted inches (in an oh so healthy positive way!) in the new year, good for you. ‘Macros‘ in this post isn’t about close-up selfies, it’s about ‘macronutrients’. You know the old phrase: you are what you eat. Knowing your body type has a role in helping you to eat and exercise best to stay fit, lean and healthy. Of the three basic body types, ectomorph, endomorph,  or mesomorph, knowing your ‘type’ and adjusting to the right ratio of macronutrients in your daily diet to achieve wellness goals is a great way to start out the new year.  You may be a combination body type, so I recommend researching thoroughly and checking out wellness sites like: muscleandstrength.com or innerbody.com  Macronutrients are essential for healthy skin, bones, tissues and organs, and include a balance of fats, proteins and carbs daily. Supplementing with high quality vitamins is also of benefit. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, varying options will apply. See Dr. Axe’s ‘Food is Medicine’ website to to understand why we need macronutrients and how to make the most of them.  Hot tip to the wisemake a plan, stick with it, and above all else — enjoy life, healthy eating and exercise, and have fun.
