iNP is a method that is based around the logic of biochemistry, keeping account of how food is absorbed into the body and evaluating the process day by day. You could eat non stop that which is proposed to you thus always feeling satisfied, this is because our system doesn’t consider quantity to be a relevant factor, more important is the quality of the food eaten and the calorific intake. iNP has the great capacity of controlling the glycerine and insulin levels, factors that strongly condition weight problems, quickly eliminating in a healthy way all of the liquids and fats that are in excess. We will make the body get used to receiving all of the micro-nutrients needed straight away (including carbohydrates, our primary source of energy) even during the slimming phase, right up until the bodies metabolism moves into maintenance mode. Another prerogative is the constant balance between acidic and alkaline foods, preventing the outcome of illness and guaranteeing the correct functionality of the organism, thus contributing to speed up the desired results. Using only that which nature makes available to us, without never having the need to utilise made up foods or supplements (with the exception of the lack of Nutraceutical such as vitamins, mineral salts or ‘good’ fats). When reaching your objective you will have consolidated all of the rules and concepts that will enable you to maintain it, in time. iNP is a trademarked method by iPersonalTrainer, developed in collaboration with Doctor Liliana Sanchez.

Breakfast makes up a fundamental role of our alimentation, it is the first ‘metabolic push’ of the day. Substantial and complete of all the micro-nutrients, this meal will allow us, thanks to the morning timeframe and circadian rhythms, to insert without any fear whatsoever every form of carbohydrate as simple or complex as you like. This doesn’t mean abusing sugars or even mixing up improbable nutrients, however through an intelligent and thoughtful process (taking into consideration your daily needs also) we can control the levels of Glycemia in the blood without generating insulin peaks. Plus we also have before us the entire day to consume any type of energy font that has been introduced into our system, therefore, if you are part of the general Italian habit, break your habits and start eating like a lion at Breakfast rather than at Dinner time!
Morning Snack >8%
Afternoon Snack >8%
Just as a stove has constant need of firewood, our metabolism constantly needs food (healthy) to consume calories. In substance, the more we can limit those holes during the day the more we can maintain our accelerated metabolism. On the contrary, fasting for many hours would make our body ask for a higher quantity of food during principal mealtimes (above all at Dinner) with the risk of voraciously absorbing the meal consumed. This could generate not only heaviness and indigestion but also a retention of liquids and increase of fat. Recent studies have actually demonstrated that 8 daily meals guarantee a metabolic rise in speed in front of others who only had 5; now, thinking of introducing all of these snacks as well as our principal meals goes against the frenetic rhythm of the society of which we are a part, however, in the meantime we can add a snack during the morning and another in the afternoon. The first is ideal for an energetic need (based around simple sugars or ‘good’ fats) whilst the second for nutrients for the muscles and fiber (protein based).
Having to run after our metabolism, logic would propose a more abundant lunch and a more scarce dinner. At lunch we could look for completeness, using also a complex carbohydrate (possibly with a low Glycaemic index), better still if it is in correspondence with the day in which we do some healthy movement in the gym or in the open air. Vegetables and proteins should be the main players in both meals, cooked for their digestibility, their nutritional value and method of cooking. In substance, all foods, for their compositions, resulting in being ‘heavier’ should be destined more towards lunch, all that which is ‘lighter’ should be consumed at dinner..
Why alkalify the body.
An ambience that is too acidic is an obstacle for the correct functionality of the organism, generating bad intestinal absorbance, bad digestion and an overload of the organs, responsible for eliminating all of the excess acid that our body has; without under- evaluating that excess acids, through time they stimulate the growth and spread of tumour cells. Let’s start off by recognizing acidic foods to alkaline ones (the basics), to make sure that everything works adequately, not just on a daily basis but long term in an effort to have a long life and keep illnesses at bay. Every type of complex carbohydrates, like all animal proteins, in part vegetable ones also, all belong to the acidic category. This is why Hyper-protein regimes (often used for slimming purposes) bring to mind the saying ‘all smoke but no fire’ in such that they work only for as long as the body can support such a force; consequently, we then see the start of a series of side effects that, in fact would obstacle the slimming process. Therefore, the excess of acids, associated with the abandon of important nutritive components, would take you back to your original eating habits thus putting back on the weight that you have worked hard to lose, often adding even more. Follow another consideration, regarding the biochemical reaction to mixing things together; the best formula for putting foods together in a functional and intelligent way is that of always putting an acidic food together with a basic one (example, Chicken Breast and red cabbage). Also, using fruit and vegetables (above all acidulous as they are more alkalizing) and drinks of high properties, for example green tea, we can actively contribute in maintaining unaltered the physiological acid-basic equilibrium of our body.
Knowledge and awareness
Knowing more about the composition of food and having more awareness of that which we are eating makes a big difference. The photo above for example indicates that the egg, great for protein with a big biological value (albumin) has a deficit in respect to other proteins, that of having other components that are too fatty and proportionally unbalanced, generated by the yoke. At the same time, we are also lucky enough to be able to separate the white from the yellow, allocating them to out liking. For us, the best proportion is 1 yoke to 3 whites, or a maximum of 2 to 5. This would enable us to eat them more often, balancing their properties, without forgetting however that the fats associated with protein are needed for making them more digestible so it is very important to try and regulate their intake instead of trying to eliminate them altogether. Of every food out there we could probably say something of interest, we could probably go on for hours, the hormonal sphere, of how to keep glucose and insulin at bay, of how useful it could be introducing foods in a chronological order and much more… the reference to the egg is just a way to demonstrate how much ‘knowledge and awareness’ you can gain with iNutritionPlan, a packet full of health and wisdom that will stay with you forever.
Poisons and remedies
Additives, colorings, sweeteners and refined substances and all genetically modified products that the food industry propose have over time been demonstrated in being extremely damaging to our bodies and our health in general. That also counts for foods treated with hormones and others of dubious compositions or origins (the dark side of meat and soya), chemical alterations and intolerances (subjective) to some food categories, for example dairy products. iNutritionPlan would like to take your hand and accompany you along the road of remedy and good use, eliminating and limiting from your alimentation all that which is considered ‘poison’.
