When it comes to food we typically see it as a fuel supply or something of an immense pleasure. But as we look closer at nutrition as pathway to greater health and fitness, it becomes important to see food, and in particular, the macronutrients that make up those foods, as more than just fuel, but as a drug.
How so? Well, in the same way that drugs have an impact upon the hormones in our body, so does the food we eat. With that fact in mind, we now have to look at food as a very powerful drug that influences our hormones, which regulate and control how our body stores and releases energy.
By balancing our macronutrients, we balance our hormones and keep ourselves out of metabolic derangement such as obesity, diabetes, and related illnesses.
