One of the symptoms of a modern diet is that it makes you numb to how diet affects your quality of life. However you're feeling - good or bad, however you're performing - good or bad, you never tie it directly to your diet when your eating is flawed. You are in a state of blissful ignorance about the various short-term side-affects of a flawed diet. You are so numb to those affects that you don't even think about your diet until you become aware - most often, painfully aware - of a longer-term affect: excess body fat. Making you more sensitive and aware of food's short-term affects on your body is the number one goal of diet. With that in place, the potential for ever creating a state of excess body fat is practically eliminated.
What we know is that there is not one perfect long-term diet for everyone. What there is is a near-perfect preliminary diet recommendation that serves as a stimulant for positive shifts in body composition and function. This phase of the process requires absolute adherence to the preliminary diet for a period of 4 - 6 months, and there is no substitute. The process of making you more sensitive begins with weaning you from your food addictions and balancing the body's organ function. This preliminary recommendation serves that purpose.
That recommendation may come in the form of Zone, Paleo, or any of their many derivatives, and Gravity Janes is constantly refining this generic diet to provide a more powerful catalyst for nutrtional sensitivity. Conforming to this preliminary recommendation begins the process of sensitizing your body to the affects of food. As that heightened sense takes hold, it will lead you naturally to the next level; one that is far more specific to you. You will begin to make choices based on how those choices make you feel. This is when things really start to get good.
I won't go into what those choices may look like so as not to plant any seeds in your head that aren't directed by your feelings, but some foods will work better for some people, and others don't work as well. However your feelings lead you in your food choices, we know this: your ultimate diet will not differ in any large way from the generic recommendation, but it may differ in many small ones.
