What is the first step in setting up a proper nutritional program? I simply do not know how to eat right or how to plan meals! I'm new to cf, been into ma for years, and I just don't want the hard work to go to waste...any help is appreciated.
The general prescription here is to start with The Zone - pick up Enter the Zone and/or Master the Zone by Barry Sears. From there, alot of people mess with the macronutrient ratios, increasing fat and/or decreasing carbs to see where they feel/perform the best. And a great deal of us follow The Paleo Diet by Dr. Loren Cordain - he has a book and a website at www.thepaleodiet.com.
Coach Glassman's easy to remember prescription is: "Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that support activity but not body fat."
maybe it's just terminology, but i wouldn't look at it as a nutritional program. healthy eating should be a habit, and not a program.
i'd review what you normally eat, and start eliminating junk food, sugar, starch/grains/etc., alcohol. make the changes slowly or drastically. depending on what feels right for you.
if you keep reading this forum, you'll find out what's good and what's bad.
