I ran for 20 minutes last night and then did about 10 minutes of jumping stairs. I'm pretty sore this morning. Shows how out of shape I'm in.
I read a lot about dieting last night. The interesting one was on the Paleo Diet. The arugement about what we ate 10,000 years ago vs. millions of years ago interests me, vs. what americans have been eating in the last 100 years.
After reading all that, it makes me not want processed grains. I'm usually a big cereal eater, and I make probably 2 nutella/jelly sandwhiches a day. Plus pizza, I probably eat it 3 times a week.
It seems today, everything processed and packaged in a box, taistes like plastic. It probably has plastic in it. Even milk shakes from mcdonalds might even have plastic in it.
I find it so hard to make an investment into a diet. It basically comes down to costs and cereal, bread, nutella, jelly are way cheaper than fresh fruit/vegatables/meats.
Cyclists have no problem spending $$ on gas to races, races, bikes, parts, clothing, but how many spend the $$ on food? It does get expensive.
You start eating 4oz of salmon every night and it will add up to the costs of 303s pretty quick.
I'm not subscribing to the paleo diet, but I will be buying more bananas, fruits, vegatables at the grocery store.
Here is Friel's guide to the Paleo diet. It lets you eat more carbs to recover which makes sense. Then the rest of the day you eat the paleo stuff.
