Robb Wolf Nutrition Seminar

Thanks to Robb Wolf for putting on another awesome seminar and to One World for hosting!!! I attended Robb’s seminar a year ago for the first time and when I heard he was coming back to town I immediately signed up for a refresher. It ended up being more than a refresher with tons of new info and tips and techniques to increase performance and live a healthier, disease free life. I think what I love most about Robb’s seminars is he realizes that proper nutrition does more than just increase your performance and help you look good naked, one of the side effects of eating good is being free from the number of conditions that are affecting a good portion of the world (diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, IBS, allergies, cancer, etc.).

Here are a few key take away points from Saturday. Some or most of this you may have heard from us before but it’s always nice to have a refresher:

  1. Go Gluten- Free: If you haven’t tried this before I challenge you to do this for at least 30 days and monitor how you look, feel and perform. Unfortunately there is no cheating with this since it only takes a little bit of gluten every 10 days to keep the gut inflamed.
  2. Get adequate sleep. Your health with lack of sleep two days in a row is comparable to someone living with unmanaged Diabetes. Create a routine before sleep. A good sleep aid is Natural Calm.
  3. Manage Stress. You can eat on point but if you have a ton of stress in your life it will spike Insulin levels and throw off your hormonal balance. FYI overtraining is a form of physical stress. It’s important to de-stress… try some Yoga or Meditation J
  4. Post WO recovery is important and the food composition depends on your goal. In general stick to a lean Protein and low/high glycemic carb (depends if you are trying to lean out). Some salmon and broccoli / sweet potato would be perfect.
  5. Fish oil!!! We say this all the time, if you are still not taking some …what are you waiting for? Start with .5- 1.0g / 10lbs of body weight per day. (Store your fish oil in the freezer and take it with food only).
  6. Eat meat, veggies, fruits, nuts and seeds. Nothing in between.

NOTE: If you are going to Sectionals, which is 3 weeks out, do NOT make any drastic changes to your nutrition at this point. Some useful advice:

  • Leading up to the games eat and train during similar times to prepare your body
  • Find out what you need to eat to be adequately prepared for both strength and endurance wods.
  • Try out different pre wo meals to see how your body responds. Last thing you want is a belly full of gas right before you have to climb up some ropes.
  • Find a good intra event supplement: something that is more carb oriented. (Ex. protein shake with some fruit, mashed sweet potato with a bit of apple sauce, etc) again try this out before game day.
  • Have snacks on hand: nuts, seeds, jerky, and pedialite for post event recovery.

Overall Robb was super informative and I am looking forward to sharing what I learned with all of you. With that being said I encourage you all to post or email us with any specific questions and we will be happy to get you some answers.

    Wow 2 days without sleep is equivalent to unmanaged diabetes, FML. No wonder why I’m so f*d up!
    Thanks for the refresher Ritu!

    Thanks Ritu, this is a great reminder that I haven’t gone more than 10 days gluten-free in a long time. It’s time for me to let my gut heal! I will go glute-free for a month, even if it means I have to wait a while to eat.

    Great post.
    Sometimes we tend to overlook the basic foundations of this lifestyle.
    Thanks for the reminder.

    Thanks Ritu!!
    Yesterday, being cold & lazy, I bought a can of Annie’s or Amy’s (can’t remember) organic gluten-free vegan split-pea soup at Safeway. It only had filtered water and a bunch of organic veggies and wasn’t terribly high in carbs: 22g, I think, for 1/2 the can. So basically my question is how close are peas to paleo and is it OK to have this soup once in a while (I love soup when it’s cold!)
