  6. 6. Chapter 1: Paleo diet for triathletes “Vegetarians are cool. All I eat are vegetarians – except for the occasional mountain lion steak” – Ted Nugent The Paleo diet, also known as the caveman diet, is the common name given to the Paleolithic diet. In essence, it’s based on the diet of our hunter-gatherer ancestors some 2.5 million years ago in the Paleolithic Era and revolves around eating foods which occur naturally and avoiding foods which would be unrecognizable to a Paleolithic caveman! A popular rule of thumb proposed by Paleo advocates is, “If it’s in a box, you shouldn’t be eating it.” The complete book is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Paleo-Diet-Strength-Bodybuilders-ebook/dp/B008ZVO0EI/ Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen
  7. 7. Chapter 2: All you can eat! The basic principle behind a Paleo diet is to eat only natural foodstuffs and to effectively eat all you want! There’s no calorie counting or portion control required and in terms of eating a Paleo diet to fuel and maximize your swimming, cycling and running performance, it’s all about tailoring your carbohydrate intake to match your activity levels. If you are in serious training for a long-distance competitive event, your need for “starchy” carbohydrate fuel may increase in comparison to fuelling your body for shorter distance or less competitive activities. The most common sources of starchy carbs for Paleo triathletes are sweet potato and potato, although rice and quinoa may be included on occasion when energy demands are high.

  8. 8. Chapter 3: Paleo Fuel Sources Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen Paleo “purists” eat only foods which can be hunted, fished or gathered. Foods include meat, offal, seafood, eggs, insects, fruits, nuts, seeds, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs and spices. Excluded foods include grains, legumes – beans and peanuts – dairy products, refined sugar, salt and processed oils. However, other Paleo-based diets include “modern” foods which were not available to our cavemen ancestors but support the macronutrient composition of a Paleolithic diet none-the-less. These foods include milk and dairy products, rice, potatoes and some processed oils such as olive oil or canola oil.

  9. 9. Chapter 4: Performance fuel Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen All carbohydrates are converted into glucose and glycogen before they can be used to fuel everyday activities and exercise. While swimming, cycling and running, the working muscles are fuelled by glucose in the blood, and by glycogen from stores in the liver and in the muscles. Glucose and glycogen are inter-convertible. When the body has a sufficient supply of glucose, carbohydrates are converted to glycogen and stored, but if glucose is in short supply, glycogen is converted to glucose ready for use.

  10. 10. Chapter 5: Flavorsome Fuel Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen The list of non-Paleo foods to avoid often seems much longer than the list of foods which can be eaten when choosing to follow a Paleo-based diet. However, as just one example, a Paleo meal could be grass-fed lamb broiled with a hint of rosemary and served with chard sautéed in bacon ends. That’s flavorsome fuel! If you need additional carbohydrates to fuel intensive training, adding potatoes smothered in grass-fed butter to your plate is a tasty way to meet those needs.

  11. 11. Chapter 6: 5 Steps To Paleo Powered Performance Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen A Paleo-based diet is essentially a diet which revolves around consuming moderate amounts of meat, moderate amounts of fruit and unlimited amounts of vegetables. Becoming a Paleo-fuelled triathlete can be summarized as follows: • Eat only real food – buy locally grown, fresh, organic produce whenever possible. • Do not eat any processed or refined carbohydrates – avoid sugar, flour, pasta, bread and candy. Eat fruits for sweet flavors or honey occasionally if your activity levels require an extra energy boost. • Eat plenty of high quality fat – sources include meat, eggs, avocado and also dairy if you choose to include it. Avoid processed oils and industrial meats, and eat nuts in moderation to help keep a healthy omega-6:3 balance. • Eat only high quality meat – buy grass-fed or wild sources whenever possible; organ meats provide cost- effective sources of quality protein. • Tailor your non-refined carbohydrate intake to match your activity levels – eat as many vegetables as you like, potatoes and sweet potatoes in moderation, rice or quinoa only when energy demands are high, and avoid all grains containing gluten.
