Lars Andersen writes excessively about how it all begun, 2.5 million years ago in the Paleolithic Era and goes on to explain that “there’s no one Paleo diet, and it’s important to note that a Paleo-based diet is not necessarily a low-carb diet as such.”
So what is it that makes a diet of this kind special? Well, perhaps the fact that “the basic principle behind a Paleo diet is to eat only natural foodstuffs and to effectively eat all you want.” Eat all you want? That sounds good, doesn’t it? However that doesn’t mean that you can eat things that are not included in the diet.
The author goes at great lengths to explain what’s good for you and what’s not. He points out the pros and cons of eating this or that kind of meat, talks about the nutritional values of a number or products and highlights a fact that I was really unaware about; that beef contains most of the nutrients your body needs.
But not just any beef. “Good quality fat sources in a Paleo-based diet are the saturated fats provided by grass-fed meat and the fat provided by organic eggs.”
However beef, or any other meat, and eggs are not the only foodstuffs a Triathlete needs when it comes to nutrition. He also needs his vegetables and fruits. Andersen says that “both fruits and vegetables provide a helpful source of carbohydrates for energy,” an energy that an athlete could definitely use in order to perform.
Diet though is not everything. “The only way to improve your performance as a triathlete is to train your body appropriately. The foods you eat provide your body with fuel for training, they do not improve your swim, cycle or run times on their own!”
The author explains in a plain way how and when to do what; how to bring the best out of you by following some simple guidelines, leading a healthy life, and getting to learn how to cook some delicious meals on the way. He provides Paleo recipes for breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, and dessert; recipes that even I, who am not an athlete, would love to have a taste of.
I think this book does not only appeal to athletes but also to anyone out there who’s interested in trying to live in a completely healthy, when it comes to foodstuffs, way. Andersen does a great job bringing the cuisine of yesterday to today, and proving that despite the huge time gap between then and now, it has never lost its relevance when it comes to the nutritional needs of the body.
He offers a detailed but not tiresome analysis of what the various foodstuffs have to offer, of what the consumer, athlete or not, has to avoid and why, and gives the reader a very good idea about the workings of the body under stress and of the various ways that can help to strengthen it.
The book at hand could prove to be a very useful instrument for any diet-conscious individual out there.
