Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruits, little starch, and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.
You are what you eat
Finely tuned, an optimal diet will increase health, energy and sense of well being while reducing fat, packing on muscle and optimizing physical performance. Diet is critical to optimizing human function and a great place to start is by eating quality food or “REAL FOOD”. The food we eat usually falls somewhere in the spectrum of “worst shit you could ever put in your body” to nutrient-rich fuel that makes you feel and perform at your potential.
Journey to Greatness
Not only does every person have a somewhat unique relationship with food, but also different goals, lifestyles, food skills, and many other connections to what they eat. While we still think a Paleo style of eating is the best pathway to optimal health and performance, both in the immediate and the long term, we also acknowledge that changing the way you eat is a journey.
It is our experience that athletes transition the way they eat not in just 30 or 60 days, but overtime as they experience new challenges, realizations, personal experiences, successes and failures.
