Ironman Wisconsin 2016 Nutrition

This week's focus, adjusting my diet.

I'm focusing on Great-Grandma's Diet, which includes: Proteins, Dairy, Fish and Shellfish, Carboyhydrates, Grains, Beans and Legumes, Vegetables, and Fats.
  • Eat Real Foods
  • Avoid Chemicals and Additives
  • Eat Consistently
  • Be Balanced (see below)
  • Avoid Soy
  • Eat Locally 
  • Eat Grass-fed Pasture Raised Proteins
  • Limit foods that are hard to digest
  • Eat anti-inflammatory proteins (gelatin, broth, egg yolks, milk and cheese)
Most importantly, listen to your body.

To help balance things out, I am using Hydrolyzed gelatin, which is a protein substitute.

Balancing what I eat into four areas:
  • Protein (3-4 oz of meat) or (3-4 oz fish) or (2 eggs)
  • Carbohydrate (Rice, Oatmeal, Sourdough, Ezekiel, Garbanzo, Black or Lentils, etc)
  • Non-Starchy Veggies (like Greens, Broccoli, Peppers, Zucchini and Celery, etc)
  • Fat (Fish Oil)
I'm working on:
  • Planning Ahead
  • Cooking in Bulk
  • Going Against the flow 
  • Being Consistent
