Dr. Barry Sears-Activate your health!

Coach Tiffany and Skip Divelbiss with Dr. Barry Sears

It was a privelidge and an honor to meet Dr. Barry Sears this weekend in Irvine, CA.  He spoke to approximately 400 fellow crossfitters about the Zone Diet in terms of fighting silent inflammation and creating optimum performance.  Here are some highlights from this amazing seminar.

The underlying cause of virtually every chronic disease as well as the aging process is inflamation.  The body is a complex orchestration of pro and anti inflamatory events. Diet has the ability to activate or inhibit these events. You are in control of your future!

The Zone:  Its about hormonal control and gene expression.  Use food as a drug in the right prescription to fight silent inflamation, control your homones and genes.  Listen to your body!  You may or may need different amounts of carbohydrates, protein and fat.  Don’t complicate it either.  Use one hand and one eye to determine amounts of food.  Eat small meals that consist of lean protein at each meal no larger than the size of the palm of your hand.  This is 1/3 of your plate.  Fill the other 2/3 with colorful low glycemic load vegetables and fruit.  Add some good monounsaturated fat.  That’s it!

Performance Zone: To increase performance you must be able to control homones and inflamation. 

Being in the Zone can give you decreased inflamation which means decreased recovery times, increased muscle mass, increased reaction times, increased mental focus, and decreased body fat!

Big Take Aways:

The power of Fish Oil!  Are you getting enough?

Low-Fat diets have no health advantage.

You must release your “fat trap” to permenently lose weight. 

Its not about calories it about converting to ATP that matters.

Diet is a way of life!
