Eat Real Food
That’s the basis of the diet we recommend for not just our athletes at CrossFit Deep Ellum, but for everyone. A Paleolithic diet centers around eating only foods that exist in nature and have been a part of our natural diet for millions of years. These foods gave us the nutrients necessary to grow our brains and evolve our bodies to what we are today. It stands to argue then that these foods are what suit us best.
From Robb Wolf
(author of The Paleo Solution)
“The Paleo diet is simple yet remarkably effective for fat loss and halting or preventing a number of degenerative diseases. To reap the benefits of the most effective nutritional strategy known, one need simply build meals from the following:
Lean proteins (ideally) grass fed meat, free range fowl and wild caught fish
Seasonal fruits and vegetables
Healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, avocado, olive oil, and coconut oil
For most people the fact the Paleo diet delivers the best results is enough. Improved blood lipids, weight loss and reduced pain from autoimmunity is proof enough. Many people however are not satisfied with blindly following any recommendations, be they nutrition or exercise related. Some folks like to know WHY they are doing something. Fortunately, the Paleo diet has stood not only the test of time, but also the rigors of scientific scrutiny.”
Foods to avoid altogether:
- Cereal Grains, Wheat and Flour
- Pasteurized and Homogenized Dairy Products
- Soy Products
