STOP EATING FAKE STUFF
You will hear a lot of different angles, all geared in a similar nutritional direction from those in our training community around the world. Here at HB, we encourage members to explore and learn about Paleo/Primal nutrition, that is, the nutritional theory that we are best suited to eat the way our pre-agricultural ancestors ate, avoiding the cheap, inefficient, calorically dense and nutritionally void “third-world” foods like grains, starches, legumes and any processed foods.
This goes hand in hand with our training: we try to train the way our ancestors would have, that is, work hard and fast, and rest and play harder.
In practice, this means lots and lots of meat/fish (Organic is great, Grass-Fed is best!), veggies (again, Organic is best!), nuts, seeds, some fruits, and little to no grains, refined foods and sugars. Legumes, such as beans, should be kept to a minimum, and dairy can be a lightning rod amongst paleo adherents. We believe that pastured, low-temperature pasteurized (if not Raw) dairy can be a great tool for muscle-building and health, and that certain types of cultures/fermented dairy, such as yogurts, kefirs, and some cheeses, can be super foods!
