The Pursuit of Paleo: What is Paleo? (Intro)

Posted: October 20, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hey everyone!

Some of you stuck around after Sunday night’s class to discuss nutrition. The nutritional “lifestyle” that I talked most about was something referred to as the “Paleo Diet”. Give yourself the 6 minutes it takes and watch this video below. It does a really good job of giving a high-level explanation of what Paleo is, and perhaps more importantly, what Paleo is not.

As I said in my first “The Pursuit of Paleo” post on the blog, I want you all to know that I am not 100% with my Paleo eating at all. So this is not me saying “be like me, I’m a perfect example.” What I do want you guys to do though is know more about this stuff, so you can make your own decisions, and hopefully improve your diet!

I believe that your food is the fuel you use to get you through the day, and most definitely through CrossFit. I can also tell you that the most fit people I know follow diets that are much more in line with this way of eating v/s any other.

I don’t like using the word “diet”, because to me, it almost implies that one would only follow that method of eating for a short time. In my opinion, Paleo is a “lifestyle” of eating, that can (and should) be followed throughout one’s life.

Well, enough preaching from me.
Check out the video, and let me know in the comments section what you think!
