|Tony Robbins Ten Day Challenge - Nutrition |
eliminate excess fats and oils, animal flesh, dairy and acid addictions
The steps seven - ten on the ten day challenge are all covered on this resource as they are all inextricably linked and they all boil down to one key approach to health - the alkaline diet.
|ELIMINATE EXCESS FATS AND OILS|
To be more accurate, the lesson should be to eliminate excess bad fats and oils, but to maximise the consumption of good fats and oils. First, however, lets tackle the bad fats.
Bad fats include, hydrogenated fats, saturated fats, trans-fatty acids and any oil that has been heated, fried, exposed to light or air excessively. In less technical terms this includes margarine, butter (although better than margarine), vegetable oils, castor oils, canola oil, sunflower oil, any oil contained within packaged foods and any cooked or heated oils or those packaged within clear, plastic containers. Milk and dairy products are also very high in saturated fats and so should be limited (as discussed below).
There are several consequences of a high fat diet:
These are just a few, however, what is more important to note is the health benefits that are gained by including good fats in your diet, namely the Essential Fatty Acids omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9 in the correct proportions. They are called 'essential' because the body relies upon us to provide a food source as it cannot produce them on its own.
While most diets contain ample, if not some omega 6 and omega 9, it is estimated that up to 90% of the UK are deficient in omega 3 (according to the Institute for Optimum Nutrition).
The benefits of increasing your intake of essential fatty acids include:
More recently, studies have also highlighted the positive effects of omega3 fatty acids on the development of infants, in treating ADHD and other behavioural problems, in treatment for depression and to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
Among other things, omega 3 can be gained from the following food sources:
- Flax/ flaxseed
However, the most effective way to ensure that you are consuming the recommended amount of EFAs is to take a high-quality, organic oil supplement such as Udo’s Choice. Udo's Choice ensures that a correct balance of high-quality EFAs are delivered to your body on a daily basis.
|ELIMINATE ANIMAL FLESH|
The pro's and con's of eating meat have been and will probably continue to be debated to death. For that reason, it is not necessary to regurgitate the same arguments again and again here. Eating meat is a personal choice that most people hold strong opinions on and do not make their choices lightly.
Our philosophy at EFL is generally to stick to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle and we have created a vegan resource here for Vegan Week 2005 which outlines some important articles and resources on how to make the transition to a vegan lifestyle. However, there are many extremely healthy athletes such as Stu Mittleman who live a 99% alkaline lifestyle but still enjoy the odd steak every now and then.
The key principle here is that you must make the decision that is right for you and makes sense to you long-term.
For the ten day challenge, I urge you to attempt a vegan lifestyle and to assess how this works for you over the ten day period.
Here is a list of some of our favourite vegan and vegetarian resources:
