Peter has a clear understanding of benefits of nutrition his living proof

1. Focus on Protein: often times when we craves sweets it’s because we are lacking protein. Remember, serotonin is made from an amino acid (the building blocks that make up protein).

PLUS, sugar alone causes your insulin, or blood sugar levels, to shoot up and then crash down. This can leave you feeling tired, hungry, and weak. It also gives your body an easy opportunity to convert (and store) that meal as fat.


When you combine a protein with sweets (or any carb), however, the protein slows down the digestion of the carbs, which allows for more energy and less fat gain.

2. Include Healthy Fats: add nuts, avocados and flaxseed to your diet. These 3 foods are high in omega-3 fatty acids, the “good fats” that help satisfy our desire for rich, creamy foods while providing high-quality nutrition.

PLUS, like protein, healthy fats negate the adverse effects sugar has on insulin levels — resulting in sustained energy and less fat storage.
