Eimele follows a principle of 50% Carbohydrates/30% Protein/20% Fat, meaning our Eimele meals have been formulated to this macronutrient breakdown, which is considered a healthy balanced diet. Following a 50% Carbohydrates/30% Protein/20% Fat principle has been shown to be the most effective in sustainable weight loss, for long-term results.

We use unrefined carbohydrates from plant-based foods in our formulation to achieve 50% Carbohydrate breakdown. This is food in its natural or unprocessed state and is not stripped of certain nutrients which include unrefined whole grains, non-starchy vegetables, legumes and nuts.


Why may I be experiencing gas and bloating when consuming Eimele products?
Don’t worry it is completely normal to experience bloating when you make a change to your diet. When you transition from a heavily processed diet or a diet that isn't as focused on plant-based foods to a more plant-based diet, you will be consuming much more fibre than you used to. Over time your stomach will adjust and you may experience lots of additional health benefits. 

When should I ‘boost’ my meals?

The Recipes section includes lots of ‘Boost’ recipes for you try.

 

Why are plant-based wholefoods healthy?
Plant-based foods are inherently high in nutrients like vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre and phytochemicals. They’re also low on calories, so what you get is maximum nutrition packed into minimal calories. Animal foods and processed foods are very calorie dense and are much lower in fibre. Naturally people eating a wholefood plant-based diet have lower BMI’s (Body Max Index), less fat percentage and less risk of major chronic diseases.

A plant based diet is completely safe, besides Vitamin B12 (which can be supplemented with a Cyanocobalamin spray), you can get every macronutrient and micronutrient safely from eating a wholefood plant-based diet unless you have a certain illness/disorder which prevents you from eating certain food groups or absorbing certain nutrients well.

 

What is a wholefood and plant-based diet?
Wholefood - describes natural foods that are not heavily processed. That means whole, unrefined or minimally refined ingredients.

Plant-based - means food that comes from plants that do not contain animal ingredients such as meat, milk, eggs or honey.

What is Wholefood with Complete Nutrition? How does this impact weight loss?
Calorie deficit aside a very important part of weight loss is developing a healthy metabolism, or 'metabolic state'.  What does this mean? It means creating a body that is primed for fat burning rather than fat storage. And this all starts with complete nutrition from wholefoods.

Complete Nutrition

- In this modern world we are overfed but undernourished. Eating too many calories from foods that are not nutrient dense. These nutritional deficiencies directly affect our metabolism.

- Specifically B vitamins, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Vitamin D have all been shown to help control blood sugar, reduce inflammation and encourage improved metabolism/energy production and less fat storage.

- 9/10 people are deficient in Omega-3 fat which are important in controlling blood sugar levels. Foods that contain Omega-3 fats include: Chia Seeds, Brussel Sprouts, Hemp Seeds, Walnuts and Flaxseeds. Omega-3 plays a vital role in maintaining heart health and can help the cholesterol balance in your blood.(5)

- Nutritional deficiencies increase food cravings - your body is essentially going into survival mode in order to get the nutrients it needs and when this happens the body switches from one optimised for weight loss/maintenance to a body optimised for fat storage and weight gain.

Wholefood

- In comparison to processed foods our products are derived from wholefoods.

- This means they are high in dietary fibre, plant protein, unrefined carbohydrates and an abundance of micronutrients.

- Dietary fibre and plant protein lowers sugar cravings and keeps you fuller for longer.

- Unrefined carbohydrates are slowly released into the blood compared with refined sugars which cause blood sugar spikes and the subsequent 'crash' where you start craving food and are more likely to binge eat (vicious cycle of over consuming nutrient poor refined foods)

Together Complete Nutrition from wholefoods promote a metabolic state optimal for fat burning and weight loss rather than fat storage and weight gain.
