Understanding Your Body – The Three Essential Fuels For The Body

Jairek Robbins

Hello there!

Jairek Robbins here, and let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. I want to impart to you a lesson that sounds glaringly obvious but often flies under the radar. A lesson that will change the way you approach your health, endurance, and the game we call life.

It’s all about knowing your numbers.

Let’s clarify, these numbers aren’t about counting sheep, tracking stock prices, or even the latest baseball stats. These numbers are the metrics of life, the essential guidelines to ensure that your body is burning the ‘right’ fuel. And yes, as the title of this piece suggests, getting them right is a matter of life and death, especially if you’re into endurance sports. (By the way, isn’t life the greatest endurance sport of them all?)

Let’s build a solid foundation before we dive deeper into the numbers game. We need to understand three core elements necessary for our brains and bodies to function at their peak performance. These elements aren’t state-of-the-art supplements or alien ingredients. They are simple, basic, yet so very vital.

Our bodies, you see, are a result of millennia of evolution, designed to survive in the harshest conditions. In our caveman days, food wasn’t a few steps away in the nearest fridge. It was something to be hunted, dragged home, and rationed carefully. Our bodies learned to store nutrients, holding onto as much as possible, preparing for the potential scarcity of the future. It’s the same reason we store fat today.

So, here’s the grand revelation. If we want our bodies to let go of the fat, we need to convince them that there is no longer a scarcity of resources. We need to provide our bodies with an abundance of the nutrients they need so that they can finally let go of the excess and step into a state of abundance.

Before I sign off, remember, these steps are a means to ensure your body has the energy it needs to perform at its best. A personal preference of mine is the “Alkaline” fueling method. If you’re interested, a great resource is Dr. Robert Young’s book, [The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health](http://amazon.com).

Stay strong, stay tuned, and remember to live every day to the fullest.
