"Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports."
That is considered to be "elite fitness in 100 words", and is a great guideline to living life.How could you not love it? I mean, the first two words are "Eat meat"!!
Now, we're all familiar with most of these concepts; "Practice and train major lifts. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics. Routine is the enemy". These are guidelines that are regularly followed here at the box each and every day. But what about that first part?
"Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat."
Is that really how you're supposed to eat? The answer is YES. This is a very basic outline to the Paleo diet. Don't know what that is? Do you even TALK to people at the box?!!?
But really, even if we'd rather not believe it, fitness starts in the kitchen, and the paleo diet is one that supports a fit lifestyle. All of you members who have been here a while have heard this a million times before, but we're not giving up on you! And for you newbies, here is a brief introduction to what the paleo diets all about. It's paleo in a nutshell. (Get it?! (on a paleo diet you can eat a lot of nuts...))
That guy talks funny...
We strongly encourage a paleo lifestyle for all of our members, or as close as you can get to it depending on what your individual lifestyle will allow. Sacrifices will of course have to be made, but it's all worth it. Don't believe me? Ask our members who have made the switch. I'm asking all of our veteran cavemen and cavewomen to leave comments below on what the paleo diet has done for you!
