Strategies to Mastering Your Meals
#1 – Don’t Count on the RDA
The Recommended daily allowance or “RDA” of nutrients for each person, based on a 2000 calorie diet. It recommends what the daily intake of nutrients should be. These standards are good for vitamins and minerals however they are completely inadequate for protein, fat and carbohydrates. The RDA for macronutrients is too broad and too high for carbohydrates and much too low for protein. The reality is that is you follow the RDA guidelines your blood sugar will likely be unstable. Understanding your personal meal parameters will provide you with the correct nutrient ratios and calories per meal to stabilize your blood sugar.
