A little about me before I dive into the dirty details of dietary considerations; my name is Jen and I’m in the process of completing my university education as a double major in nutrition and zoology. I have been following a vegetarian diet for as long as I can remember and a vegan, grain-free diet for the past year (after an ex-boyfriend introduced me to the concept of a paleo diet). So, with my undergrad nearing an end I decided to make this blog to keep my passion growing and to continue to learn. Hopefully I’ll get some readers that can learn with me as well as question or correct me! I invite any comments, be it good or bad!
Anyyywayyys, the paleo diet sparked my interest on the implications of our modernized diet. I always get people asking me about my diet and assuming that I am a radical because my views are a bit out of the box from the average person- but are they really? I think that the overwhelming evidence that supports my views is a good indicator that they are actually kind of logical. Aside from my dietary interests, I am an avid rock climber and am focused on training to reach my performance goals- my diet is a major consideration while I am training. So far, I have seen some massive gains as a result of my diet.
So with that back ground info, my blog will be about nutrition. I will consider anything from nutrition for athletics to paleo diets to different supplementations to … etc.
