This is the first post of a new series called: “The Pursuit of Paleo”

In these posts, I’ll share stories and ideas for how to keep your diet geared towards what I feel is the most effective  way to tailor your nutrition.  For me, that way is by following a Paleolithic diet.  What is that?  I won’t overwhelm you with details here, but basically it means you eat foods that were available 10,000 years ago.  If it’s processed or has a label on it, it’s probably not good for you.  CrossFit.com says in it’s World Class Fitness in 100 Words: “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar.”  That’s as simple as it gets.

Now let me start this new segment of the blog by saying one thing:

I am by no means a model of what a person should or should not eat.  However, I am constantly improving my own diet and can say, with complete confidence, that proper nutrition is equally as important (if not more important) than an effective training program.  If you address and improve your diet, you will improve your quality of life.  You can quote me on that.

Finally, everything I write in these segments are my own personal thoughts and opinions.  I am not a nutritionist, so understand that it’s just my opinion and take what I’m saying with a grain of salt!  Actually, scratch that.  Salt’s probably not the best thing to eat…
