Here it is – Uber Shape’s very own Food Pyramid!
We have created a fun, new Food Pyramid mirroring the clean eating / paleo way that forms the basis of Uber Shape’s nutritional guidance. Recently you may have heard on the news that there has been a significant decrease, with some people even being cured of health complications simply by reducing or cutting out the amount of junk food, sugar and processed foods in their diet. The Government has also recently updated their food pyramid making it equally on the right track – better late than never I say.
It’s no surprise that people now desire to start eating clean, whole foods in hopes of improving their health and lifestyle significantly. Local farmers markets and butchers are getting swarmed with people searching for quality in fresh produce, even avoiding supermarkets that they would commonly visit on a weekly basis. Personally, Nikki and I also shop at our local farmers market and butcher every week for this exact reason.
A little tip – if you purchase fresh produce that is in season, it tends to be a lot cheaper than at the supermarket, plus you have the guarantee of quality and locally sourced goods.
Uber Shape is proud to release its very own Food Pyramid, which has been used for the past 6 years proving success to many of our clients for health and fat loss. We’ve broken it down into 9 vital tiers, which we believe makes it easy to understand and compliments your routine meal breakdown and plan provided as part of your nutritional training.
- Occasional (wine, chocolate)
- Supplements (vital greens, fish oil etc)
- Dairy (protein, cheese, cream, milk, yoghurt, butter)
- Carbs / Starchy Vegetables (rice, sweet potato, corn, split peas, quinoa)
- Fruits (pineapple, grapes, bananas, apples, strawberries, lemon, kiwi fruit, watermelon, orange, pears, blueberries)
- Fats,Small amounts (avocado, nuts – almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, coconut, olive oil, almond butter)
- Protein, 1 portion (eggs, fish, red meat, white meat)
- Fibrous Vegetables, 1-2 portions (tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, zucchini, kale, mushrooms, capsicum, beans, asparagus, carrot, onion, spinach)
