The Zone Meal Treasure Chest

A sound nutritional plan sends markers of health in the right direction and prevents sickness.  A solid meal should make you feel more focused and full of energy, in addition to satisfying your hunger. In other words, you should feel "in the Zone."  Being in the Zone is simply finding the right combination, quality, and quantity of marconutrients and timing the meal well – resulting in a beautiful harmonious balance of hormones.

This ideal meal is not going to be the same for everyone.  By following Zone parameters for your body composition, you've only started your path to wellness.  A Zone meal for one person may not be ideal for everyone.  For instance, when I have a meal consisting of 4oz sliced deli turkey, 2 apples, and 12 almonds – I know that this meal will leave me hungry.  Yet, if I have 4oz grilled chicken breast, 2 cups of steamed broccoli, 3/4 of a cantelope, and 12 almonds – I feel like dy-na-mite!

What I'd like you to do is create a little treasure chest (a shoebox would do) of Zone meals that make you feel great.  This meal should also have a time of day associated with it, i.e. breakfast, post workout, late-night snack…  As you build a menu of Zone treasures, your ability to live in the Zone becomes easier and easier.  This will result in long life of perfect performance, balanced hormones, and high levels of energy.  Okay, totally exaggerating, but you get the idea.

Mark your calendars, Saturday September 24th at 11am we're hosting a nutrition workshop. The nutrition workshop is great for both beginners and advanced athletes. As always, the nutrition workshop is open to the public and free of charge.  A strength and conditioning program only gets you half way to becoming healthy, addressing how you fuel your body can take you the rest of the way.  This lecture will address how to reduce unhealthy inflammation that causes pain and undue stress on the body.  A couple of small changes can improve how you look, feel, and perform immediately!
