Wellness Wednesday: The Paleo Diet

 

The Paleo Diet puts the focus on eating real, natural, whole foods that have gone through little or no processing to get on your plate.  You eat plants and animals. We’re talking meats, fish, eggs, greens, veggies, fruits, and nuts.

The philosophy behind the Paleo Diet: experts took note of our modern-day behavior and thought, if obesity and disease rates are rising as quickly as processed foods are flying off shelves, maybe we should go back to our roots and eat like our early ancestors did?

Simply put: “If a caveman didn’t eat it, neither should you.”

Some benefits of going Paleo: 

  • Weight loss

  • Feeling pleasantly full for longer periods of time

  • Less sugar cravings

  • Clearer skin

  • Increase in energy

  • Physically more muscular

  • Improved digestion

  • Reduced inflammation

  • Healthier relationship with food

Below are a list of things you CAN eat:

  • Chicken

  • Fish

  • Red meat

  • Pork

  • Eggs

  • Vegetables

  • Fruits

  • Nuts

  • Natural oils

  • Healthy fats

  • Natural sweeteners

Pro tip: Prioritize organic, grass-fed meats and free-range eggs, and opt for wild-caught seafood and organic vegetables.

Foods that are “OFF LIMITS”:

  • Processed foods

  • Refined sugar

  • Refined carbs

  • Legumes

  • Dairy

  • Grains

  • Vegetable oils

Keep in mind when starting a Paleo Diet that there are many variations and that there is no such thing as a perfect Paleo Diet plan.  It’s about finding the Paleo plan that works best for you.

Stay tuned for the next Paleo Course at CrossFit San Ramon…

Here at CFSR we practice what we preach, and we understand that life is busy and meal prepping isn’t always an option.  We’re fortunate enough to have OUT OF THE CAVE on our side!

They deliver fresh Paleo meals to us every Monday evening for anyone to enjoy during the week  – AND – for those of you who would like to order multiple meals, exactly how YOU want them, click on the link below to order!

CrossFit: Why It’s Worth Trying

Image result for motivation crossfit

Below are 5 reasons why CrossFit is worth a try if you’re looking for a fitness journey that can make positive changes in your life.

  1. It’s a challenge: CrossFit can provide a challenge both mentally and physically.  Some say that if you are not progressing then you’re regressing and embracing a challenge leads to progress.

  2. You will definitely see results: if you commit to CrossFit, you will see results in your agility, strength, endurance and overall health.  It will also encourage you to eat nutritious food to fuel your body so you can improve your performance and generate better results.

  3. It creates empowerment: CrossFit makes you feel empowered when you complete workouts you never thought would be possible.  It gives you a sense of ownership, control and contributes to the mindset that you are a total boss.

  4. It’s a culture and a community: CrossFit individuals experiencing real challenges and providing endless support for one another quickly become a family, NOT just a class. Most gyms participate in group activities like The Open or local competitions, and many encourage members to give back to the local community outside their own walls.

  5. It’s workout with a purpose: CrossFit doesn’t only specialize in one area of your body.  It is an overall fitness experience that is fun and aims to improve quality of living by making everyday movements part of programming.

Have no idea what to get the special CrossFitter in your life for Valentine’s Day?  Well, look no further because we’ve put together some gift ideas to make them smile from ear-to-ear this Valentine’s Day (not a sponsored post).

Out of the Cave Meal Delivery Service – Meal Prep for Athletes: Have you tried the TWO NEW meals?  Pollitas and Pork Adobo?  They are so DELICIOUS! Every Monday night at 8 PM fresh meals are brought to CrossFit San Ramon for your CrossFitter.  If you’d like to order custom meals, please go to outofthecavefood.com/order to get started!

Designs for Health at CrossFit San Ramon: Give your loved one the gift of pre and post workout shakes, bars, vitamins, supplements, joint health, etc. The bars and shakes taste oh so good and just about any CrossFitter (or fitness fan) would love them too!  Check out http://www.crossfitsr.com and let Tim or Lori help you with any questions you might have.

US Cryotheraphy: Buy your CrossFitter a session for Valentine’s Day.  CrossFit San Ramon members receive a special of $29 for 1 Whole Body + Localized Cryotherapy + Hydro Massage + NormaTec Compression.

Speed Rope: A lot of CrossFitters own their own jump rope, but if you’re buying for a newbie, a speed rope is a great option. Most of them are adjustable, so you can give them one that they can later customize to their preference.  These can be found online through Amazon, RxSmartGear, or RPMTraining.

Paleo Cookbook: Not every CrossFitter eats Paleo, but many of them are healthy eaters. Here is a list of Paleo Cookbooks worth buying: Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook, Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo, Fed & Fit by Cassy Joy Garcia.

Calf Sleeve: Having rope climbs in a workout means that you NEED some sort of shin protection. Otherwise, you’re ripping up your leg, which does not feel good. (It also looks pretty gross.) Knee-high socks are a great option, but slipping on a calf sleeve is so much easier! Give your loved one a pair for Valentine’s day.

Magnetic WOD Smartphone Mount: This mount is great for recording Olympic lifts and other movements to help improve form. It’s also pretty awesome for taking photos/videos for your blog or Instagram!

I hope you found these suggestions helpful.  Now go out there and make your CrossFitter a happy Valentine!
