Yin/Yang Imbalance Our body wants to maintain balance at all times – if we eat something that throw our body off balance, it can create a craving for sugar. Sugar is an extremely Yin food, so if you eat a lot of extremely Yang food, your body will crave sugar to balance itself out. Examples of extreme Yin/expanding foods include: sugar, alcohol, dairy, chemicals, honey, spices. Examples of extreme Yang/contracting foods include: salt, egg, red meat.

To create balance, we need to limit foods that are too Yin or too Yang. Refined sugar (an extreme Yin food) causes rapid elevations in serotonin, followed by rapid declines. When serotonin level falls, we experience depression, low energy, anxiety and loss of concentration. When this happens, our body craves extreme Yang foods to balance the equation. We often overshoot and find ourselves ping-ponging between the two extremes, using one type of extreme foods to alleviate the effect of the other.

Nutrient Deficiency Low protein intake: § 

If your diet is relatively low in protein, try increasing your protein intake.

§ 

If you feel you have adequate protein in your diet, consider assimilation and absorption – which affect how well your body is able to use the nutrient.

§ 

Good sources of protein: meat, fish, dairy (high quality), nuts and seeds, eggs and beans.

§ 

For vegetarian and vegan, pay special attention to food combining.

Low chromium: § 

Helps regulate carbohydrate metabolism and blood sugar level.

§ 

Reduced absorption is related to aging, diets that are stressful to the digestive system, excessive fat intake, as well as intake of refined flour and sugar.

§ 

Good sources of chromium: brewer’s yeast, beef, liver, whole wheat, rye, fresh chilies, oyster, onions, potatoes, wheat germs, eggs, chicken, apple, butter, banana and spinach. Your Website URL Here
