Since our family has been paleo for 4 years now (wow! time flies!), I do admit that I’ve missed some of those “comfort foods” that my mom used to make (and then I made out of a tuna helper box). So a few weeks ago, I decided to figure out how to make a paleo
The future you is glad you’re here.
While the elements of the Live Well Project are nothing new, we believe our approach is unique and we sincerely hope it provides the best path to success for our entire team. We’re excited to see the positive changes ahead for us all.
Goals of the CFCU Live Well Project
- Provide an accessible approach to implementing ideal diet habits
- Create one month of focused effort toward improving diet regardless of current habits
- Identify tips, tricks and methods for making a healthy diet an easy part of everyday life
- Empower participants with the freedom from addiction (yes, that’s the right word) to the typical Western diet
Ideal Eating Habits
We firmly believe it begins with quality and is refined by quantity.
Astonishing, remarkable change will happen simply by getting rid of the foods that are slowly killing you (again, that’s the right word) and replacing them with the foods that have the greatest potential to support healthy life. Once that dragon has been slain, it’s time to dial in the right quantity and balance of foods. (side note: this is why 100-calorie packs of Oreos are absolutely ridiculous)
- Quality of Food
- Lean meats
- Nuts & Berries
- Healthy Fats
- Locally sourced and responsibly grown whenever possible
- Quantity of Food (the Zone part)
- Eat enough to support exercise and muscle development without generating excess body fat
- Balance macronutrients (protein, carbohydrate & fat) to reduce the cellular inflammation that makes us gain weight, accelerates the development of chronic disease, and decreases our physical performance
