The beauty of the Paleo Diet lies in the simplicity of it. Basically if it was walking, swimming or growing out of the ground you can eat it. But wait OT, grain grows from the ground. Ah yes it does, but man has to alter it before it is edible; harmful proteins (primarily gluten) are still present after processing, thus making grains toxic to all humans.

So what should I eat?
Below is a condensed version of Foods to Eat/Foods to Avoid.
|Foods to eat|
|Grass Fed Beef|
|Wild Caught Fish, Shrimp, basically any sea food|
|Free range chicken|
|Eggs (free range)|
|Buffalo, venison, elk, any game meat will do|
|Pork (includes bacon, yes!)|
|Friuts and Veggies (easy as that, the greener the better)|
|White potato (every once in a while, only if you are at your weight loss goal)|
|Nuts and nut butters|
|Butter from grass fed cow (considered primal not strict paleo)|
|Foods to Avoid (this is a big list but here are some of the basics)|
|Grain fed beef|
|Farm rised fish|
|Dairy (unless it comes from a grass fed cow, similar to butter)|
|Basically anything that is fed something it does’t eat in the wild|
|Soy, all forms of it|
|Grains (yup all of them, wheat bread is just as bad as white bread)|
|Rice (although gluten free, avoid if weight loss is goal)|
|Basically anything with gluten or gluten like properties, ie corn|
|Butter from vegitable oils|
|High fructose corn syrup|
|Sports drinks (gatorade)|
Here is a revised version of the food pyramid that is a little more accurate.
Tomorrow we will go over on-line resources to use as tools for your success.
Rep progression, 12min time limit of:
Ball Slam, 50#(40#) must catch on bounce to be Rx’d, including last rep
Box Jump, competition standards
Do one ball slam, one box jump. Then 2/2, 3/3, 4/4 and so on till 12min is up.
Depending on class size we there might be multiple heats for this WOD.
Front Squat 3-3-3-3-3-3-3+
Use the first 2 set as warm-ups, the rest at 75% or add 10# to last time done (6.19.12).
Hit 3+ on last set.
