Nutrition: you are what you eat

NUTRITION

Below are 3 different healthy ways of eating.

The choice is yours!

1. PALEO:

The paleo diet essentially allows lean meats, fish, veggies, some fruit, tree nuts (not peanuts) and seeds, little starch, and no sugar. This excludes… grains, legumes, white potatoes, dairy, and corn. Things that are excluded in paleo are foods that most people are allergic to or just have issues digesting. Watch the white potatoes and corn, they will turn into sugar.

2. PRIMAL:

The primal plan is very similar to the paleo diet. It allows some dairy; such as creams, butter, Greek yogurts, and some cheese.  These should still be in moderation.

Zone Diet

3. ZONE:

This plan takes much more time and discipline. Each meal is made up of blocks so it requires a lot of weighing and measuring. Planning meals ahead of time will help with your success rate with the Zone diet. If you are very organized and good at watching what you eat this may be for you.
