Paleo... the CaveWOMAN Diet

Thursday we revisited an old post that had much to do with women’s health.  It made me think a bit about how there is very little info in the health and fitness mainstream that actually addresses women’s health.

Society puts so much pressure on women to look a certain way (skinny), each certain foods (whole grains and yogurt), and just as much, behave “lady-like” and also be independent and empowered, yet doesn’t give way to much helpful info on how to be all of it.  It’s all very conflictual.

The athletic and bodybuilding communities apply most the same techniques to women’s training and nutrition they do for men.  On the flip side, the food companies aggressively market foods directly to women we know are not good for any of us.  There are publications dedicated to women’s health, but with articles like this one in Women’s Health Magazine, how can we take them seriously???

Ladies… soy, yogurt and dairy, grains (bread, pasta, etc.), and low fat foods are making women sick and overweight.  Stop eating

Jamie Lee Curtis says yogurt is good for you! She also knows black is slimming. Nutrition advice: Don't take nutrition advice from fat people.

them.

Some would have you believe eating a diet of mostly meat (especially red meat), veggies, and fats is just not very feminine.  The fact is there nothing further from the truth.  The CaveMan diet is just as healthy for women as men…  therefore, it’s femininity is without question.

The benefits of the Paleo diet are huge for women.  Adding more protein and fats do wonders for your health and it’s apparent in your how it positively affects your skin, hair, and nails.  And while that may sound a bit vane, the three are great indicators of what is going on in your body.

Below are a few tips and books that you find interesting.  Enjoy.

    It’s very interesting to me that I’m getting female advice from a special forces guy. Don’t get me wrong, I really appreciate it, but it still seems weird that t. would even care about some of this stuff. I ordered the Eat, Drink, and be Gorgeous and can’t wait to read. And the Ancient Body book looks like a good reader also. The Strong is the new Skinny blog is great. The Nike add is funny. My butt is big but doesn’t have the “ass” to herd anything. HAHAHA. Ive never heard of inositol, where should I get it?
    Thank you for the info t. And thank you for not being to tough to ignore women’s health. As always it’s great to read your Sunday posts.

    Tony,

    Just tonight I googled “Sugar cravings after a meal” and came up with an exact plethora of misguided “advice”. Thanks for the cinnamon tip. I am still roasting my own cinnamon almonds and they are DELICIOSAS!

    Miss you guys!.
