I am neither a scientist nor a nutritionist, but following are some interesting patterns and relationships that I have found to be compelling.
There are three main groups of foods that we consume, and each of them has a specific role and function in the health of our bodies. They also categorically relate to embryology, the three main parts of our bodies: Mesoderm, Endoderm and Ectoderm. (see Man’s Body)
Proteins are the building blocks for our bodies, relating predominantly to our structural Mesoderm. Carbohydrates give us energy, relating to our Endoderm system. Fats (those that are good and beneficial) relate to our Ectoderm system.
The proper balance of each of these groups in relationship to one another, as well as to our unique individual physical make-up is critical for proper health. For example, those who have a predominantly Endoderm type of body do not need more Carbohydrates, since they are already strong in this area. As they lean in that direction, it may ultimately produce obesity in their bodies. They would be better benefited by consuming more proteins and good fats than too many carbohydrates.
It is evident that those who are endeavoring to build their muscular physique will need a proper amount of protein for the re-building process to take place successfully.
Is it coincidental that those we consider to be the most intelligent people around the globe have a diet rich in the ‘good’ oils (which come from fish and other healthy sources)? The consumption of ‘good’ fats relates to the successful functioning of the Ectoderm system.
What is even more interesting to see is the correlation between our human soul (mind, will and emotions) to the functioning of our bodies and our diets.
The Bible is clear about the impact our thoughts and emotions have on our physical well-being. “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” (III Jn. 2)
The categorical relationship of the functions of our soul, as it relates to our bodies and our nutritional needs, is as follows:
Generally speaking, we need carbohydrates most, then a less amount of proteins, then finally a smaller proportion of fats.
I find it interesting, in correlating the soul to primary colors (Mind/Blue, Will/Yellow, Emotions/Red), that the smallest frequency is Blue, while the largest wavelength is Red. The progression of small to large, starting from the Mind, to the Will, and finally to the Emotions seems to correlate to the proportional amounts of Fats, Proteins and Carbohydrates our bodies require.
The diagram is as follows:
As stated above, certain people have bodies that lean in one direction or another, so a ‘balanced diet’ will be unique to each individual.
