PaleoRx: Get It Right, Get It Tight!
What is this?
It’s that time of year for our annual gym wide nutrition challenge! Starts Monday, April 28th and ends Sunday, May 25th. Registration is $30.
The real question is why not? The purpose of this challenge is to get you to commit to eating clean for a full four weeks. You will: feel better, recover better, rest better, and have a better sense of what you are (or were) eating to nourish your body. You might: change size(s) in clothing, lose weight, gain weight, get frustrated, get excited, become a ‘professional’ chef and/or food photographer.
“Nutrition is important to reaching your goals. Depending on what those goals are determine which paths you can take. As those who continually test work capacity, rest, and recovery, we definitely want to consider how the types of fuel you feed yourself determine how you look, feel, and perform.
For those who are just getting into exercise, those wanting to change body composition (see: lower body fat), improve energy and clarity, and perform better, we suggest the Paleo diet.
If I may quote World Class Fitness in 100 words:
Eat meat and vegetables, seeds and nuts, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that support exercise but not bodyfat. The paleo diet is simple, but let’s remember: simple does not necessarily mean easy.
Instead of focusing on what to rid yourself of, we want you to fill yourself up with more of the good stuff: real foods consisting of quality proteins, fresh leafy greens, monosaturated fats, a handful of fruits, and other vegetables not called carrot, celery, and onion.
Let’s try to reset our health through cleaner eating.”
