Our Metabolism

Morning ya’ll !  All day yesterday I just kept hearing that still small voice within say, ” write about metabolism” What else popped in there was how we all have different metabolisms or do we?  Metabolism:  is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of organisms. The three main purposes of metabolism are the conversion of food/fuel to energy to run cellular processes, the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates, and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes.

After more research I found in all life the striking feature of metabolism is the similarity of the basic metabolic pathways and components between even vastly different species. However, here’s where the differences come into play with mankind. There are different metabolic body types: ectomorph, mesomorph, or endomorph and each type has different defining characteristics. Once again I see we are Not all the same and because of that we should not all try to follow the same dietary habits or the newest fad diet that has hit social media. Not only are their the 3 body types it has been proven that you could even be a combination of body types. One place that is talked about is in Deepak Chopra’s book Perfect Health. Only he uses Ayurveda term Vat, Pitta, and Kapha. There is even has a short quiz to home in on your type. I found it very on the money as to what foods agree with what turned out to be my body type.(Vatta/Pitta) I have also learned over the years your metabolism changes with the seasons of your life. Nope we are not  puppets created One way and the garden never changes in this life. Much to the contrary. We are changing as each year as new seeds are planted within, new life is grafted in, and as we grow in wisdom and knowledge.  Like it says in Ecclesiastes 3:1 ” There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”  On that note: see The Way to Healthy Living for your Type.  Consider what the ” The Word” says about healthy eating. One book you can do that in is: ” What the Bible says About Health Living by Rex Russell, MD. ( Check it out ! I mean that literally at your local library. smile)  This website that has good info too: https://gethealthyu.com/the-3-metabolic-body-types-explained/

Why am I going on about this: 1st cause the Holy Spirit said to and 2nd I have always felt each person needs to Love themselves, seek, and research The Way God wants you to go in determining what should be put in ” Your ” body, mind, and spirit. We are all One as mankind but, totally different in our design. We resonate and process things differently in mind, body, and spirit. The landscape of our inner and outer bodies are not meant to be cookie cutter gardens copying what everybody else does. Think about it: Our bodies don’t all respond the same to the same food, smells, visual stimulations, sounds, etc. Yet, seems to me that is the goal of social media to beat us into doing as ” they ” say do. Way to many passing judgment on others, deciding what should and should not be done, said, listened to, what we should wear, look like, and so forth. Our Freedoms are disappearing. Our right to Be and become who we were designed to Be held in bondage. Now I am not saying we should have right to be cruel to others but, isn’t cruel to be dictating how people should talk, what size they should be, what they should wear, drive, how to decorate the Inside and Out of the homes they spend so much money on and so on. What happened to character, individual style, our differences being a Blessing?

My prayer today with this post is that you will seek and research what is Best for YOU and that you will share this post with your family and friends in hopes that they too will Be and become the unique beautiful individuals they were designed to Be. In this action we all benefit as our gifts & talents unfold and when we Love one another for the beautiful beings we are…as we are…not as who ” they ” say we should be. Don’t be a puppet!  Love yourself whatever body type you are and don’t do crazy things trying to look or be like someone else. BTW: If someone doesn’t love you for who you are as you are they don’t really love you anyway. You don’t need them nor their approval. Move on and trust God will bring those equally yoked into your life. Seek God and all He has for You, tune into His Love and allow that Love to grow within you and allow yourself to BE You both inside and Out !  In this choice Love, Peace, and Joy will shine on you and those you interact with.

As I sign off I leave you with these words:

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the patterns of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2 NKJV
