Eat fat to lower cholesterol… What about dairy, is it healthy? Can I run an ultra-marathon or CrossFit on a low carb/ high fat or paleo diet?
These are just some of the questions we cover in this episode of The Health Sessions as we catch up with Nora Gedgaudas, best selling author of Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet. I’ve time coded the bullet points so you jump straight to the bits that interest you most in the video. But when you’ve got the time, it’s well worth kicking back and watching the whole video as the content is invaluable!
With Smart DNA testing you can discover your genetic road map that will benefit you for the rest of your life.
In this episode of The Health Sessions I chat with molecular geneticist Margie Smith of Smart DNA (smart being an understatement!). Sounds technical I know, but Margie simplifies it into an easy to understand way of how we can look at our gene expression for a more personalised approach to better health.
We also understand that with todays hectic lifestyle, being well prepared at all times can prove to be challenging. So after the success of our all natural protein powder, we were very keen to produce an all natural, gluten free protein bar. And yes, we are completely transparent with our ingredients with no nasty surprises. Continue reading →
Guy: I met Angeline Norton (pictured above) at Sydney’s Filex fitness expo earlier on this year. With enough protein supplements and chemical potions to make your head spin, it was refreshing to meet a sports/fitness model who was passionate about what they put in their body and doesn’t buy into all the hype.
Impressed with her approach to health and sports modelling and an all round great girl, I asked Angeline if she would share some of her tips on what it takes to get that sports modelling look… Enjoy! Continue reading →
Over the next few months, we’ll be putting up a series of simple video recipes along with the paleo recipes section. In this video, I show you how I make Coconut & Carob protein bars & balls (depending how you roll with it). A seriously delicious snack!
They are low carb, high protein and easily homemade using the ingredients listed below along with our very own 180 protein supplement. Honestly, these protein bars & balls have been my saviour on times, and they can be knocked up in the kitchen in under 5 minutes. Continue reading →
We’ve opened up a new topics section on our blog: Paleo recipes. I know for many people, when they think of the word paleo, what pops in ones head is a carnivorous meat eater that hunts down their own kill for dinner. This couldn’t be further from the truth and over the coming months we will be building a resource of healthy paleo recipes along side our current 180 Nutrition recipes.
For me simple is good. As long as the food is in the fridge the recipes will be delicious no brainers. So we kick off our first paleo recipe from our very own master chef…The ever creative Caroline Howe! Continue reading →
Guy: This is a guest post by fellow CrossFitter and friend Khan Porter (aka The Fit Frother). For those of you that CrossFit, trust me, I think it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be hearing a lot more of The Fit Frother. It’s a pleasure to have him feature on the blog and I’m sure it won’t be the last you see of him here at 180 Nutrition. Over to Khan…
Khan: It’s interesting becoming a part of a community which prides itself on egalitarianism. Where information is freely available and self education encouraged. CrossFit preaches knowledge as a key to success and at the pinnacle of the knowledge tree is understanding good nutrition. Continue reading →
If you were looking to improve your finances, would you rather take advise from Richard Branson or a financial advisor who is struggling to pay off his credit card and mortgage (not that they are all like this, but you get the gist), who would you prefer?
When it comes to health and weight loss, I hear a lot of opinions along the lines of ‘I eat a healthy diet but I just can’t seem to shift this flab’. If you want real results it would make sense to learn from people who are living and breathing examples of where you would like to be, then simply copy them. Many people talk it, but the best advise comes from people who walk it.
My fellow CrossFit Bare comrades Josh and Stacey are fine examples of health and athleticism. Stacey also happens to be a CrossFit HQ coach and has her own nutritional business – Paleo Star – She’s also a qualified dietitian. Even if your not much of a CrossFit or exercise enthusiast, there’s a lot to be learned by simply looking at their typical daily eating habits listed below.
In Josh’s own words
My general eating philosophy is that I eat from natural & unprocessed sources. Grass-fed red meat, hormone free chicken and eggs, and the most notable change in the past 6 months is the elimination of processed sugar. A lot of fresh veggies and dark leafy salads. Fresh (cold pressed) juice every morning and fibrous pulp saved for 180 Nutrition carrot slices (no plug intended). Continue reading →
