Food, What the Heck Should I Eat?

I’m Jody King-Colegrove with Quantum Techniques. I want to discuss a book that I have found very interesting. It is Food: What The Heck Should We Eat? By Mark Hyman. I own many of his cookbooks, and I really like his recipes. There are some super recipes for wholesome soups and salads, and many other dishes, that I enjoy preparing. It’s easy and fun and I highly recommend his books. His latest book is extraordinarily interesting and useful and I’d like to share some of his key principles:

  • Eat a diet that has a very low glycemic load, which means minimal sugar, flour and refined carbohydrates.
  • Eat mostly fruits and vegetables that have a great variety of color. That’s what I’m working on right now – trying a variety of different vegetables to see which ones my family likes and experimenting with different methods of preparation to see if it changes their enjoyment of the veggies. It’s a fun task!
  • Eat a diet that is low in pesticides, antibiotics, hormones and very little, if any, GMOs. Staying away from chemicals, additives, preservatives, dyes, MSG and artificial sweeteners is imperative.
  • Eat quality fats that include omega-3 fats, such as olive oils, nuts, seeds and avocados.
  • Make sure to get enough protein for adequate appetite control, muscle synthesis and brain function. For example, if my dad doesn’t eat enough protein, he gets a headache. It’s very important to have enough protein in your diet in order to maintain requirements for the entire day. At QT we can test to discover how many grams you should ingest at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Eat organic, local, fresh, grass-fed meats.

The benefits of adhering to these principles is losing weight, gaining energy and increasing mental clarity. There are lots of great ways to eat more healthy, but I definitely recommend reading Dr. Mark Hyman’s book.

About Jody King Colegrove

Life has it’s up’s and down’s; my life is no exception. After being married several years my husband and I discovered that we were having difficulty getting pregnant. I had always been the kind of person that when I put my mind to it I can achieve anything. My favorite quote was “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it”, by William Arthur Ward. With this issue I had hit a wall. We did the traditional medical treatments of In Utero Insemination (IUI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). The egg would not attach to the uterine wall on the 26th day of my cycle because the receptor site had been turned off because of a previously used contraceptive. Not being able to get pregnant, what every other woman can do easily, really made me feel like I was not a women. I started pulling away from people and friends. We started working with Quantum Techniques to heal not only my body, but the trauma of going through all the procedures, the disappointment, and the emotional pain of wanting something so bad and not being able to make my body perform. After working with Steve Daniel and clearing the physical and non physical issues, I got pregnant five months later. This was such a profound healing in my life that I wanted to share Quantum Techniques with others, so I became a practitioner. I have worked with people regarding Anxiety, Headaches/ Migraines, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Weight loss, Addictions, Fungal infections, Depression, Insomnia, Thyroid problems, Broken bones, Warts, Skin issues, Allergies and Sensitivities, Babies and Animals, Dental issues, Sexual Abuse, Environmental Illness, Hormone Imbalance, Phobias/Fears, ect., just to name a few. I found Quantum Techniques to be extremely helpful in raising my son. Whether it was breast feeding, colic, getting him to sleep through the night, bed wetting, potty training, and food sensitivities, Quantum Techniques has helped every step of the way. Several years ago, I broke my leg skiing. I went through two surgeries; one to set the leg and one to remove scar tissue. I spent 5 months in physical therapy. During this time, I used Quantum Techniques to increase the speed of healing my leg and to reduce the pain and inflammation during recovery. I also needed to heal the emotional pain of not being able to walk for 3 months and to live life the way I was used to living it with movement and vitality. I had a great surgeon repair my broken leg. It was wonderful to also have the power of Quantum Techniques to ease my pain and maximize my body’s natural healing abilities. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Architecture from Pacific Union College in California. I live in Flagstaff, Arizona with my husband, Don, son, Avery, and Golden Retriever, Copper. I love traveling, learning, exercising, and gardening. Before joining the Quantum Techniques team I worked as a Real Estate Agent, Property Manager, and most recently as the Owner of a company building high end custom homes. I have Massage training, which includes Reflexology, Asian Medicine, Nutrition, and Herbology. I have training in Dona Eden’s Energy methods, Life Skills by Ron and Nancy Rockey, Laurel Melin’s Emotional Brain Training (EBT or Solutions), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) by Gary Crag, Mark Hyman’s Ultra Mind Solution, and Guy Finley’s teachings. I teach people how to take care of their health and happiness. As we live life we encounter toxins and traumas in our life. These affect our health and keep us trapped in life repeating the same stress or lesson until we learn how to get out of the loop. I would love to share with you how Quantum Techniques can impact your life so you can get back your health and happiness.

    How might you help cure chronic insomnia that I’ve had for decades? I am Almost 67.
    Or anything to prevent hemorrhoid flare ups.
    Thanks!

    • Thank you for your interest in Quantum Techniques! I have worked with many people regarding insomnia. Sometimes it is as simple as removing toxins you are reacting to during the night, or clearing pathogens affecting your liver, or it could possibly be a blood sugar issue; sometimes it is multi-faceted. It sounds like you have had it for a long time, so there may be several layers of healing that need to be worked on so the body can learn how to have a good nights rest. As for hemorrhoid flare, we would need to clear any toxins and pathogens affecting the area and put the body’s healing intelligence of immune pathways back on-line. I would love the opportunity to work with you so you can get your health and happiness back! Jody

  2. I will have to look into this book!
