Connie’s comments:

  • Your food choices should include whole foods and raw foods with this ratio: 40% Protein, 30% carbs and 30% fat.
  • You can still eat meals prepared based on your cultural practise but add exercise in your routine and avoid sugar, exposure to smoking, excessive alcohol and avoid processed foods.

Women:

  • Women can increase their calories from fat (35%) and reduce carbs (25%) to create a balance.
  • Eat heavy meal 3-4hrs before bedtime. 9pm bedtime would mean that dinner is at around 6pm.
  • Normal sleep pattern for women based on their hormones is between 9pm to 5am.

Strive to eat plant-based diets (although they have low content of Leucine, Methaionine, Arganine) to live longer:
