You need to eat vegetables every day because you simply cannot find another food group that is as perfectly matched to our everyday human needs as vegetables! To begin with, vegetables as a group are so low in calories that it is very difficult to gain weight even if you overeat them. Dietary fibre is critical for our health, food cannot move through our digestive tract in a healthy way unless it is fibre-rich and vegetables are some of the very richest sources of fiber that exist. Phytonutrients are also the nutrients most closely linked to prevention of certain diseases and there is no food group that provides them in amounts as plentiful as vegetables. Vegetables like broccoli, and in root vegetables like onions and garlic (which are listed below), are unique when it comes to decreased risk of certain cancers, and some of these nutrients simply cannot be found in other food groups.

A healthy adult is estimated to need around 40 to 65 grams of amino acids (proteins) per day, it is generally considered men, taller ladies and those who exercise require the higher, which is why we suggest you include an extra product if you fall in this category, our High Protein range provide approximately 18g per meal. Proteins are the building blocks of life. The body needs protein to repair and maintain itself, they are involved in just about every function in your body, the better quality the more it keeps you satisfied for longer and ensures that lean tissue & muscle are protected so weight is lost from stored fat rather than muscle. Research has proven that the thermic effect of premium protein is the highest of all the macronutrients, requiring about 30% of the calories it contains, just for digestion and processing. An added bonus is that lean protein foods suppress your appetite!

The foods in this group are referred to as "starchy foods".  Starchy foods are a source of complex carbohydrates, fibre, B vitamins.  They may also provide calcium, iron, copper and Vitamin E.  The result of leaving skins on starchy foods is it can be encased in protein or fibre that must be digested before the starch itself becomes available for digestion, this slows down the absorption of the individual sugar units from the starch, and provides extended, sustained energy for a longer-term, moderate rise in blood sugar after a meal.


 

>> Kee Fruit / Energy Portions - (Print your Copy)

Approx 50kcal - Uncooked Weight

1 x    Banana small (60g) or medium Apple, Orange, Pear or Grapefruit

Fruit does contains sugar but in its natural form "Fructose" which takes longer to digest and therefore helps maintain longer energy, whilst simple sugar and glucose can cause a large increases in blood sugar, followed by an abrupt drop and the need for another quick fix of sugar to raise energy. Processed foods often add high amounts of sugar/glucose to promote a sweet taste, which sells more product, but does not sustain health. Much of the sugar mentioned on our products is derived from Fructose and therefore slower releasing and more easily digested.

Study after study demonstrates the protective effect of fruit. We need the vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, gums, pectin's and fibres that are in fruit and it is advantageous to leave the skins on as this slows down the absorption of sugars and provides extended, sustained energy and extra dietary fibre. It is fair to say that we are generally already oversupplied with calories, so the sugars from fruit are of lesser importance, it is therefore preferable to restrict the majority of fresh produce to low GI/GL varieties above, especially when following our plan 1000kcal – However when you reach our Lifestyle plans you can mix and match your energy source and occasionally include a little Medium to High GI/GL produce as shown below, but try to limit them to one portion only per meal. 

Medium to High GI/GL Portions 25kcal / 1 cup /1 Handful

Aubergine, Beetroot, Carrots, Dates, Figs, Onions, Parsnips, Peas, Peppers (Red & Yellow), Pineapple, Pumpkin, Sweet corn, Squashes, Tomatoes, Turnips
