Nutrition is key to a healthy lifestyle.
Nutrition is the foundation.
Everyone—has experienced a situation where nutrition positively or negatively affected his or her physical or psychological performance.
The Paleo dietary prescription is as follows:
Protein should be lean and varied and account for about 30% of your total caloric load.
Carbohydrates should be predominantly low-glycemic and account for about 40% of your total caloric load.
Fat should be predominantly monounsaturated and account for about 30% of your total caloric load.
Calories should be set at between .7 and 1.0 grams of protein per pound of lean body mass depending on your activity level. The .7 figure is for moderate daily workout loads and the 1.0 figure is for the hardcore athlete.
Eat Meats and Vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. It really is that basic. I think people try to make it harder than it is. What it comes down to, is mind over matter.
