Obstacle course racing has had a huge positive impact on my life! it's given me a reason to train and become a better healthier me! My hope is to help others do the same!
EAT LIKE A CAVE MAN
Many people tend to over complicate their diet strategies and treat diet more like a chore when it should be something enjoyable. If you can remember a few simple rules to eat by you can eliminate the guess work and start enjoying food
RULE #1 - EAT UNREFINED (RAW) FOOD
Food that's free of impurities - Food in it's most natural form - Meat that has lived a natural life on its nature intended diet (example: beef that's not pumped full of grain but rather lived a life eating grass free range)
RULE #2 - PORTION CONTROL
Eat until your content not till your stuffed..often times we will have those last few bites of our meal left and instead of throwing them out or saving them as left overs we will scarf them down. This is an easy way to over eat because you don't want to waste it or save that small amount. I'd recommend saving your food because often times you can find a place for them in other meals (omelettes, stir-fry, ect.) or possibly a small snack for later on.
RULE #3 - KEEP IT SIMPLE "THE GOLDEN RULE
"The old saying "You are what you eat" still holds true to this day. Make a conscious effort to really think about that food you plan on putting into your body. That is your fuel for sustaining your existence. Do you want to be full of artificial chemicals and dyes? or do you want to be as pure as you can be the way nature intended? To sum it up, don't over-think your nutrition most of us have a good general idea of what's good and bad. If it's from the earth - pure and unprocessed go ahead and enjoy. If it has been messed with and a ton of things have been added to it, its nutritional value has been compromised and is not a good choice.
