What's Paleo All About?

 

October 17th – 8:00PM – Crossfit Bayonne – 432 Broadway Bayonne

Check out this new Paleo Testimonial I just got today

My name is *****, I’m 38 and I’m three months in to my paleo lifestyle. In a very short amount of time I have become very passionate about this program and have seen so many wonderful effects of the discipline.

My fiancé and I moved to ****, ** from *** in March of 2012. Over the course of our first year here, I trained for and ran 6 half marathons. I biked, hiked, and walked regularly. I also gained 15 pounds and can’t remember a time when I felt physically worse.  I was exhausted, lethargic, bloated, not sleeping well (the list goes on). Things just weren’t adding up. I tried everything I could think of, nothing worked. And maybe the worst part, for the 1st time in my life exercise was not enjoyable because I felt weighed down and largely unmotivated. I was pretty sure it was due to my diet (which I didn’t think was that bad).

Then came Paleo. In 3 months I’ve lost 15 pounds (10 in the first 30 days) without even trying. I’m sleeping thru the night for the first time in about 6 years, my workouts are amazing and efficient, my cravings for sweets (which were severe) are all but gone and I feel better than I can ever remember. My body is also more lean and fit. I had no idea how poorly I was eating and how much processed junk I was putting in my system. I was uneducated around what was actually good for me as I subscribed to the low fat/low cal way of eating and because of that, was pumping my body full of processed junk. It was a huge departure from what I was used to. But the fact is it worked. Perhaps the most amazing part of my experience is I’ve gone off the Lexapro I’ve been on for the past 2 years to treat anxiety. The benefits of this have not been just physical, as I find myself feeling more confident and clear headed. It’s a difficult thing to articulate but I feel in control and sure of what I’m doing. That has far exceeded my expectations around this program. Put simply, I feel good. Really good.

I would highly recommend reading as much as you can find on the subject. It’s satisfying and with the right material is actually fun. The recipes are endless and I learned a whole new way of cooking. One that is far easier than I’m use to. I look at food completely different and am eating far less and going much further on what I put into my system. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when I’ll cheat but I do my best to stick with it most of the time because the results are impossible to dispute. So much so, that I don’t see myself going off this anytime soon. If ever.

One very important detail for me to note is none of this was possible without the guidance and support from Dr. Noah. He recommends an amazing variety of books and subject matter that made this easy and enjoyable. Big shout out to him. Anyone who is thinking about going Paleo, DO IT!! It’s one of best decisions I’ve made for my health. You will not be sorry!!

Paleo Pack – 30 Day Supplement Program

June 17, 2013

We all need nutritional support on some level.  Depending on your genetics, how well your digestive system works, and the quality of your food choices will determine what kinds of supplements are best for you.  It is our belief that if you are eating a Paleo Template Diet with appropriate sun exposure your need for these products should be minimal. Especially if you are consuming organ meats, bone broth, and a wide compliment of fresh vegetables.   However, there are a few supplements that we feel are necessary even in the best of diets and this is why we designed the Paleo Pack.

So you may be wondering what is in the Paleo Pack. Each packet includes 6 capsules and 2 softgels.  2 capsules (2,000 ius) of Vit. D3, 2 capsules (300 mg) of Magnesium bisglycinate chelate, 2 softgels (2,000 mg) of Marine Fish Oil Concentrate including 10 ius of Vit. E, and 2 capsules of a Probiotic Blend supplying 6 billion cfus of beneficial bacteria.

Why Vit. D3 – first and foremost many people are deficient – Vit. D3 has roles in calcium metabolism, bone health, and many other physiologic processes – Vit. D receptors are found in the colon, prostate, breast, ovary, and  many other tissues, it is anti-inflammatory, boosts immune function, and up regulates many many genes.

Why Magnesium Chelate – it is a cofactor in more than 300 enzymes, extremely important for cardiac function, energy metabolism, neurochemical transmission, and bone formation.  The chelate form is absorbed and utilized much easier than other forms such as carbonate or sulfate.  Other than cacao and a few other foods magnesium is difficult to get from food alone.

Why Marine Fish Oil – high potency DHA and EPA will  help your body reduce inflammation and to feed your brain and nervous system with the fats it needs to function at high levels.  Omega 3s support many physiological processes related to immune function, lipoprotein metabolism, brain function, and mood regulation. A small amount of natural Vit. E is added to  maintain freshness and retard lipid peroxidation.

Why Probioitics – 6 billion plus cfus of bifidobacter and lactobacillus to help reestablish your healthy balance beneficial bacteria, boost your immune system, and improve your gut health and digestion. Microencapsulation is used to help protect the microorganisms from destruction by stomach acid to ensure there viability and improve shelf life.
