The paleo diet… it’s really not that hard. It’s simply a choice you make. How well you do is up to you.
The foods on it are delicious and fill all requirements for a well life. I promote it because I know it works. Not only will you crush the AMA’s parameters for good health but you’ll crush your weightloss and/or fitness goals too.
Every metabolic pathway is enhanced by eating cleaner foods. The ratios of macro nutrients can vary some per sport, but for general health and wellness, a lower carbohydrate, moderate to high fat and moderate protein ratio tops others.
I just had my blood work done… yes, again. My triglycerides were a 32 and my C reactive protein were a 3… the lowest my MD has ever seen. But then again, so was my last month’s panel… a 36 and 4, respectively. While most look to LDLs as the focus marker for good health, I don’t even consider it. But that stuff is too in depth for what this post is about.
This one is on the 101 level… basic and introductory. It’s not meant to be sarcastic in any way (ok, one, but it’s not something most of you would catch), but since crap foods are so accepted in our society, many people don’t know whole grains are not good for you!
We’ve so many new clients at CFW, and so many of you are serious about improving your health, not just working out, so I want to get you on the write track. Our nutrition classes are full and being requested more every day. Don’t worry, I’ll post the next one in a few days!
So get any of you started on the right track, I’m here to tell you there’s no bread, pasta, rice, cakes, cookies, frozen waffles, or cereal on the diet. Nope, none. Not even whole grain stuff or yogurt. I just wanted to post a few pics of things that are simply not on the diet… period.
NO EXCEPTIONS on these things…
You can make the primal diet seem difficult,
but there really is no challenge in hunting a Big Mac!
