Swimsuit season is fast approaching, so I figured this month I would focus on nutrition and a tip of the week.
First, let me say that I am not a health professional or dietitian; I am simply sharing things that have worked for me. That being said, I am a firm believer in the Paleo Diet for Athletes. Yes, there is a difference between the traditional Paleo Diet and the Paleo Diet for Athletes. Although they both follow the same main categories; lean meats, nuts, seeds, vegetables and some fruits, the Athletes diet incorporates tubers and whey protein during the “recovery” window post-exercise. Each meal should contain a Protein, Carbohydrate, and a healthy Fat. For example, my lunch yesterday contained 5oz. of grilled chicken breast, 2 cups of sautéed Kale, and 15 Almonds all accompanied with 16oz. of water. Each meal is very easy to compose as long as follow the matrix provided on http://robbwolf.com/faq/#basics.
This week challenge yourself to 7-days of eating like a caveman and let me know what you think.
