I’ve been waiting for a good time to start posting here and time keeps ticking away. Yesterday Staci and I started our 2nd Whole30 nutrition program as a way to end the summer boating season make up for some eating and drinking indiscretions of late. I figured this is as good a time as any to start logging our progress in an attempt to help others who are looking to do the same.
Our simple nutrition tip has always been “Stop eating crap, eat real food”. If you want an extreme dose of this concept, try the Whole30 program. It’s not for the faint of heart or the undisciplined. However you successfully complete it you will be amazed at the changes in your life in terms of health and fitness, even if you don’t exercise.
Day one started off yesterday following a full 8 hours of sleep the night before. Breakfast consisted of three of Staci’s paleo egg & sausage muffins and a batch of her beanless chili made with grass fed beef. About an hour later I had a Refuel Bar from Amrap Nutrition prior to my morning workout. These bars have become a big hit with many of our members at CrossFit Cleveland. Lunch and dinner looked about the same, both consisting of a kale salad with steamed broccoli, 4 ounces of filet mignon left over from our weekend steak roast and clam bake and grilled chicken I cooked earlier that afternoon, and a handful of almonds. Lots of water and a couple cups of coffee throughout the day. Nothing sexy, just good, real food.
More to come, stay tuned.
