Philosophy

kate-deering-fitnessSince Kate’s start in the health and fitness industry over 20 years ago, her ideas and practices have evolved dramatically. Once a believer that one must workout more and eat less to get healthy, she now believes quite differently. In fact, for some to achieve health, they need to do quite the opposite.

As we get older, we are led to believe there is a natural aging effect. With age, we wrinkle more, we gain more fat, we lose muscle, our posture deteriorates, our bones get weak, our energy diminishes, our metabolism slows down, we feel colder, our skin gets dry, our joints hurt, our sleep becomes restless, our digestion is irregular, and our sex drive goes in the toilet. Augh. Doesn’t aging sound fun?

Kate believes, along with numerous other researchers, that aging is based more on how we live our life vs. the years we are on this planet. Meaning, we can slow down and even reverse much of the aging process if we understand how to exercise properly, eat supportively, reduce stress, live with purpose, love, and appreciate the life we
are given.

True health is established with an understanding of what things increase metabolic function and what things decrease it. A high metabolism is linked to youth. A high metabolism is linked to a lack of disease. A high metabolism is linked to good sleep, a healthy sex drive, healthy skin and hair, a lean body, and overall happiness.

Kate’s methods in nutrition, exercise and mind-set are designed to help you live longer, increase metabolism and decrease injury and illness. Backed by the teachings of Paul Chek, Dr. Ray Peat, Dr. Broda Barnes, Dr. Mark Starr, Dr. Hans Seyle, Dr. Constance Martin, Dr. Weston A. Price, Josh Rubin and many others, Kate has developed
a nutritional coaching program that can help you gain back your health and increase your vitality.

Aging does not have to be a miserable process. It can be a journey of getting to know your body better, understanding your physiology and anatomy so that you can keep your body fit and healthy for its next adventure.

I'm on a nutrient kick this week--so one more.

What Is Vitamin B6?

-Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin. Thus, it is not stored in the body.

-It can be found in three forms: pyridoxine glucoside (PNG), pyridoxal phosphate (PLP), and pyridoxamine phosphate (PMP). PNG is found in plants and grains; PLP and PMP are found in animal sources.

-PNG is a form of Vitamin B6 found in plants, particularly cruciferous vegetables. According to a study in The American Journal for Clinical Nutrition, the presence of PNG in plants can decrease the bioavailability of B6 by 75–85 percent. Essentially, although plants contain Vitamin B6, the fact that it is the PNG form makes the B6 hard to get. PNG is also found in grains.

-PLP is the active form of B6 and is the cofactor in a multitude of metabolic functions. These include: protein, fat, and sugar metabolism, neurotransmitter, hemoglobin and histamine synthesis, and gene expression.

-Animal sources of B6 (pyridoxal phosphate(PLP), and pyridoxamine phosphate(PMP) have almost 100=percent bioavailability.

Thus, the most bioavailable sources of B6 are beef, liver, eggs, and milk. Potatoes and bananas are the best non-animal sources.

-The RDA of B6 is 1.3-1.7mg/day

Beef liver - 3oz = .5mg

Beef 3 oz = .3mg

Egg (1 large) = .1 mg

Milk (1 cup ) =.1mg

Potato (1 large) =.6mg

Banana( 1 large) =.5mg
