Sometimes it takes going back in time and thinking in a more primal way to understand what our bodies were designed to eat. The idea is to follow the menu choices of a caveman. Cavemen were hunters and gatherers. Their bodies evolved to be ready at a moment’s notice to chase down the next meal because food wasn’t always available. They were mentally challenged to plan their ways of attack and other motives for survival. They survived on meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits and nuts. This becomes the basis of nutrition for athletes: lean meats and fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and healthy oils.
