R9D45 Bootcamp 2.9.2 – Cardio. Plus Tony H Ditches Veganism For A Sensible Diet (Paleo)

So an interesting article caught my eye this morning, Tony Horton claiming that “Yes, I was a vegan for years — and I felt great doing it. But the problem was that I couldn’t keep weight on, eating just veggies, fruit, beans, and nuts, so I had to rethink my strategy. I still eat tons of veggies, but I’m now a free-range chicken, wild salmon and other healthy fish-eating type of guy, too. I’ve also cut back on my grains, having discovered that the less gluten I eat, the better it is for my body and brain chemistry.”

It appears that the Paleo diet is already becoming an accepted mainstream methodology in the fitness community, Tony goes on to mention that the P90X2 diet is basically a paleo approach which leaves us early adopters with that not so special feeling. I don’t really care to be honest, I have managed to get to where I want to be with my weight for the first time in my life so Paleo has worked it’s magic for me. I just would encourage everyone to give it a try, it’s really coming of age as the best way to control weight and sickness by modifying your intake.

Bootcamp on Wednesday was great, we had another visitor, a sister of one of my kids and so it was great to let the group show off what they can do. I am hoping it was tough enough for them and for her! I also was back at the gym on Thursday night to help coach the provincial kids for another 4 hours so it’s been a busy couple of days.
