On this episode of the Doc and Jock Podcast we talk about simple but effective nutritional advice. Joe and I have both done a ton of self experimentation with different nutrition plans/concepts. We narrow our advice down to 5 principles that are effective for the masses.
If you're a really high level athlete or are putting in tons of training, you're going to be a bit more complex than what we talk about. For the rest of us humans, these principles with apply perfectly.
Here they are:
1. Eat unlimited amounts of high quality meats and vegetables.
2. Know your fats and eat a lot of them because they are essential.
3. Earn your carbs.
4. Gluten free is the only way to be.
5. Avoid processed foods.
One little editing error in this one to note is about mid way through the podcast Joe's son walked in and asked him to turn on the TV. This wasn't edited out so you get to hear all the glory of being a parent! Don't let that distract you from some really effective nutrition advice.
Here are a few links to books/videos we reference in the podcast.
