This is an overall healthy meal plan that is rich in fiber, healthy fats, protein, and micronutrients. Adding protein and healthy fats promotes hormonal balance since our hormones are composed of these macronutrients ( Peptide hormones are made from protein and Steroid hormones are made from fat). That's why it's important to consume both protein and fat daily. Protein, fat and fiber also help prevent spikes in blood sugar by slowing down the absorption of sugar in the blood. This means you’ll have more stable energy during the day.
