5.3.13 – Day 3

3 May

Day 3


Last day before the weekend. Which means it’s time to see who some of our cheaters are. The weekend proves to be the hardest time to stay Paleo time and time again. Stick to your guns. Paleo doesn’t have to be challenging. If you are going out to eat at a restaurant order meat and veggies…dar! Get a salad to snack on while everyone is stuffing their faces with bread. Order a vodka or tequila on the rocks with some lemons/limes. You will look like a BAMF. Going to a cookout? MEAT & VEGGIES. Throw some avocados on the grill. They take so good like that. yum.

REMINDER – before photos, weight & measurements are due by TONIGHT at 10pm. I’m still missing a lot of these.

Some IMPORTANT things I want to cover…I know it’s a lot, but please read.

WODs-you get 3 points for WODding AT RECKLESS per week. you can get 1 point for doing something on your own SATURDAY/SUNDAY if you can’t make it to Open Gym. you don’t get points for doing your own workout during the week.

DRINKs-no soda, no diet soda, no juice, no crystal lite. these all have so many chemicals and so much sugar in them it’s not even funny. you guys can have water, tea, coffee. don’t like how they taste? throw a little honey in your tea, add some berries/lemon/lime/cucumber/herbs to your water, splash come coconut milk/cinnamon/honey in your coffee.

FRUIT-i should outlaw fruit on these challenges entirely because every time i say IN MODERATION, fruit is the bulk of people’s meals. take a look at your food logs. how much fruit are you eating per day? i’m ok with you guys eating berries, but stay away from apples, bananas, etc. they have a huge hit on your GI (glycemic index).

GLYCEMIC INDEX-The glycemic index shows you how the fruits, veggies, and other carbs you eat affect your blood sugar levels. The GI rates all carbs on a scale of 0-100, 0 being best 100 being worst. Foods with 70+ rating cause a huge spike in your blood sugar levels. When this happens your pancreas releases a ton of insulin to deal with all of the sugar. When your body has a lot of insulin in your blood it makes it very hard to burn off stored fat. You should stick to fruits/veggies that have a low GI rating. Not sure what your carb is rated? Google it before you eat it! ex-Broccoli GI rating

LARABARS-another thing i wish i could outlaw from these challenges. these are a crutch people. eating one or two a week is ok, eating them every day, not so much. be sure to read the ingredients before you scarf these bad boys down. a lot of them contain peanuts and cashews. those are not paleo.

PROTEIN SHAKES-ughhhhh. now i told you guys supps are ok for this challenge. IF TAKEN AT THE RIGHT TIME. protein shakes aren’t a meal or a snack. they should be taken within 30 minutes of your workout. that’s it. any other time you should be eating REAL food. I let it slide for Day 1 & 2, from here on out you won’t get points for your meal/snack if it’s Protein powder. Blonyx is allowed on the challenge.

DO IT-i want you guys to start looking at your meals and snacks before you start eating them. do you have a large hunk of protein? you should. meat good. meat make muscles big. do you have carbs (veggies)? you should. these are your energy! eat up. do you have fat? you should. whether it’s nuts, coconut, or an avocado, fats should be in all of your meals and snacks.

Repeat after me: I [insert name] do solemnly swear to eat PROTEIN, CARBS, and FAT Β at everyone one of my meals and snacks. I will stick to low GI veggies and fruit. Coach Britt is awesome. (you better have said that last part)

Remember, you get 1 bonus point for Yoga tomorrow (9-10a) and 1 bonus point for Open Gym or a WOD/sport on your own.

Go check out www.health-bent.com. again, bomb ass recipes on there!

Happy Friday!
