Week Three Nutrition Call <----- Click Here for the call tonight.
So far the calls have been awesome. Simply the best holistic nutrition protocol ever
been put together for runners and athletes. Steve and I are jumping for joy with
all the good information that Luanne and Gary Null are sharing with you.
Here are some success stories we've heard from runners listening to this program:
One runner now has eight days with no diet coke...after years of daily consumption.
Another runner decluttered her whole house after the first call.
Many people have given up refined sugars completely...no cookies, candy, sodas, etc.
Others are eating more fruits and vegetables than they ever have.
If you have success stories....please email them to Steve or I. They help others
stay motivated. Even little successes mean something.
Now this is what we were shooting for. We want to give you the information so that
you can better nutrition choices for yourself. This about creating a healthy lifestyle
for many years to come.
We've seen far too many runners use training as an excuse for eating unhealthy. Consequently those decisions catch up to them then they quit training altogether.
Let's review some homework that I've been suggesting the last few weeks. How have you been doing?
1. Decluttering. Are you increasing your energy flows by decluttering and cleaning all
areas of your house? If not...start this week. Do it in small chunks. Get some help
whatever it takes. Buy a book on Feng Shui and begin implementing the principles.
2. Eliminating sugars. Sugars is like acid for athletes. And probably the biggest reason
why we a growing obesity crisis in this country. So lead by example for our youth...cut
out the refined sugars. No cookies, no candy, no sodas, no sugary desserts. Switch to
organic fruits instead. Fruit is nature's candy for us. There are so many wonderful
delicious fruits. Visit a farmers week and buy the freshest cherries, peaches, strawberries,
that you can.
3. Begin switching to a primarily vegetarian diet. Now Gary and Luanne recommend
getting rid of the meat altogether. But take your time on this. It won't happen overnight.
But what you can do is begin having eating vegetarian two days a week. That's my
suggestion to you this week. Choose two days...and eat no meat products including
dairy those days. You can do it. It's only two days. Have lots of fruits, vegetables,
good grains. It will be a wonderful little practice for you.
If you are already vegetarian, maybe try eating RAW for two days a week.
Be sure to listen to the Week Two Call call for lots of vegetarian eating suggestions.
4. Practice grounding and meditation. This is a very important part of the program.
For 15-30 minutes every day...practice relaxation/meditation. That could include:
Lying down and listening to meditative music.
Guided meditation...there's lots of great cds for this.
Yoga...easy to learn...visit a beginning yoga class...or get a dvd/book.
A long calming bath with epsom salts...music...and soothing music.
A walk on the beach or through nature.
Prayer/meditation....this is the ideal.
Whew. That's a lot. All of these things will make huge differences in your health.
And as a runner they will compensate for all the impact of this wonderful exercise.
We are training you to be runners for many years to come...to get better and faster
every year...just like Luanne and Gary Null are doing.
It's a lot, I know. You can do it though. We so believe in you.
So take it step by step, talk positive to yourself, be like the ants and the turtles...slow
and deliberately making changes every day of your life.
