Kaleo! It’s the Magic Pill!

Did you hear? I’m starting a new fad diet! It’s called Kaleo. Kale + Paleo = Kaleo. It’s a plant based Paleo diet. Genius, no? I’m going to write a diet book and exercise program, hawk them on my blog, badmouth everyone else’s way of eating, cherry pick and post a few outlying studies that support my philosophy, get lots of advertisers to pay me to pimp out their products, and make a million dollars. No one has EVER done anything like that before, after all.

Food:
B: green smoothie (watermelon, blueberries, spinach, kale, cucumber, avocado, raw protein)
L: 2 rice cakes with natural peanut butter, cubed tofu with olive oil and salt and pepper, small peach/strawberry/cucumber/kale smoothie
S: 2 rice cakes with avocado, apple, peach
D: 2 Praegers’ california burgers (speaking of pimping out products, I gotta plug these guys, they’re pretty decent for convenience food. They’re made almost entirely of vegetables, vegetables that still look like vegetables. Other than some ‘soy flakes’ pretty far down the list, there’s no franken-food in them. They’re FAR better than the standard boca/morningstar meat substitute offerings, although still inferior to homemade), 2 whole wheat tortillas, sliced heirloom tomato, mustard.

Cal: 2629
Carb:334
Protein: 135
Fat: 104

Workout:
AM: 30 minute bodyweight circuit
PM: worked on OHS, freestanding handstand, and clean and jerk. Got up to 115, only 5 pounds off my PR. I’m almost back, guys!

  1. What does paleo mean? Vegetarian plus fish? And your excercise, what is clean jerks or OHS? Do you eat the entire avacado and add lots of protein powder to get to the calorie total?

  2. Vegetarian + fish is 'pescatarian'. Here's the Paleo wiki:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolithic_diet
    Basically it's an attempt to eat the way we speculate our paleolithic (pre-agricultural) ancestors ate. So, lots of meat, fish, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables. I actually think it's a pretty healthy diet. Some of it's proponents are a tad fanatical, though, especially considering how soft the science backing it is.
