Human beings have walked the earth for a little over 2 million years - that's almost 67,000 generations of evolution. Of most importance to us is the fact that for 1,990,000 years, we ate a certain way - meat, fish, vegetables, nut, seeds, some fruit, little starch and no processed sugar. It has only been in the last 10,000 years that we introduced grains, and then processed grains and finally processed foods - all within an incredibly short time span as far as our bodies are concerned.
Is it any surprise that our bodies are struggling under the enormous weight of the highly processed, fructose and chemical rich foods that populate the Standard Australian Diet (S.A.D)?
Perhaps it's time to eat in a way that is in harmony with the way our bodies have evolved to function. This is not a diet - diets are about deprivation and restriction and by their very nature indicate a start and finish - ' oh, I'm on a diet'.
At CrossFit we run two foundation nutrition programs.
Undergraduates - Our Sugar Challenge. 30 days of sugar free existence, paired with an educational program that covers not only the case against sugar but how to get off it and stay off it.
Masters - The Whole 30 Paleo Challenge - we are an accredited partner with the world renowned Whole 9 program. This allows us to run the 30 Day Whole 30 Paleo Program. The ultimate step in changing not just your nutrition but your entire relationship with food.
How do I start?
