“The Hunter-Gatherer Diet has more nutrition than the American Heart Association Diet, more nutrition than the American Diabetes Association Diet and more nutrition than the USDA Food Pyramid Diet. I therefore started with a hunter-gather diet. I used those concepts, but i structured it to be sure i was getting the nutrition, the vitamins and minerals- nutrients that I identified as critical to my brain cells and my mitochondria. That diet is this: 3 cups of green leafs, 3 cups of sulfur rich vegetables, 3 cups of bright color, grass fed meat, organ meat, and seaweed.” -Dr. Terry Wahls

If Dr. Wahls used the concepts of The Paleo Diet, which is basically eating wild plants and animals, to beat secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, don’t you think eating this way and regularly exercising will benefit you way beyond just what you see in the mirror? Feed your cells, feed your blood, feed your mitochondria!

I started applying The Zone to my daily diet nearly 5 years ago, and now our entire family eats this way, including three children ages five and under who have been eating like this their entire lives. We are able to do more, perform better, and live healthier. Take a few minutes to learn some more on The Zone hormonal balance plan. There are many more videos on Dr. Barry Sears video channel that I would recommend. I just posted a few based on the discussions I most have with our clients. We have used this method for hormonal balance with our clients for many years with significant success. Here is a good article that will guide you into The Zone as well- http://library.crossfit.com/free/pdf/cfjissue21_May04.pdf.
