Paleo primer for the masses
This is just a quick primer I threw together. Please point out any mistakes in it. I'm system.root on gmail.
- Paleo - Short for paleolithic diet, paleo is a lifestyle based on the idea that humans evolved eating meat, fat, fruits, and vegetables without grains or legumes
- Ketosis - Ketosis is a state of metabolism characterized by higher than "normal" ketones in the blood.
- Crossfit - A workout plan based on the idea that humans didn't evolve sitting at an office desk all day. It can be summed up as "Move heavy stuff"
- Carbohydrate - abbreviated carb, it is a macronutrient containing 4 calories per gram
