Today, we are thrilled to introduce our healthy-eating, performance-driven readers a brilliant new resource–one that dovetails beautifully with our new Whole Athlete seminar series. And it’s brought to you by one half of the Whole Athlete team: Stephanie Gaudreau, of Stupid Easy Paleo. Even better? The other half of the Whole Athlete team, Dallas Hartwig of Whole9, wrote the foreword for this brand new e-book for athletes.
Wow, you’d almost think this was coordinated or something.
Introducing The Paleo Athlete, from Stephanie Gaudreau
You are a competitive athlete, a dedicated exerciser, a weekend race warrior. You’re also into eating a healthy, whole foods-based, real food diet–the kind we advocate with our Whole30 and Whole9 Life programs. But unlike other Paleo or Primal eaters, you’re concerned about health and performance. You’re not just fueling to live longer and be healthier, you’re fueling to be faster, stronger, leaner, winning-er.
And until now, there haven’t been a lot of books written on the subject.
The Paleo Diet for Athletes is a great place to start, if you’re into endurance athletics. But what about those of you who CrossFit, kettlebell, sprint, powerlift, and Olympic lift? How do you apply Paleo diet principles into your training in a way that allows you to maximize performance? (Hint: you can’t just do a standard “low carb Paleo” approach like everyone else. Well, you could, but you might be sorry.)
The Missing Link for Paleo Athletes
The Paleo Athlete bridges the gap between general Paleo recommendations and specific dietary strategies designed to improve athletic performance and recovery. It’s geared specifically for the sports mentioned above, and features strategies for those who participate in endurance athletics. Stephanie explains daily nutrition, training nutrition, and competition day fueling, giving you a range of macronutrients, recommended supplements, and timing strategies so you can figure out what works best for your body and your goals.
But The Paleo Athlete is more than just pre- and post-workout nutrition. Stephanie teaches you how to incorporate eating real food around your busy work, family, and training schedule. She gives you tips for preparing your kitchen, ideas for training meals on the go, and more than 50 recipes to get you started on your Paleo Athlete journey.
Take Your Performance to the Next Level
By using the guidelines outlined in The Paleo Athlete, you’ll be able to tailor your nutrition strategy in a way that works for you–your body, your life context, your sport, your goals. The information Stephanie provides will form the foundation for your carefully planned daily, training and competition-day nutrition, which will translate into faster times, heavier lifts, and course PRs.
Don’t keep flailing about cutting carbs here or drinking shakes there. Learn more about the science of performance nutrition, use Stephanie’s recommendations to create your own specific plan, and follow her tips to get the rest of your (sleep, stress, and recovery) house in order.
