Vegetables Over Grains

Charles Poliquin who is a famous name in the world of fitness, nutrition, and sports. Poliquin has trained Olympic medalists in 12 different sports, including gold medal sprinter Donavan Bailey.

The whole basis of All Out Effort has been about training and nutrition guidance of regular folks with the same information we use for professional athletes. Because it just doesn't trickle down and people end up getting their info from celebrities, trainers who have no business giving advice, reality shows, documentaries, and their opinionated friends. It's not about forks over knives, its about vegetables over grains.

In a blog post called, Eliminate Grains In Favor Of Veggies And Fruits To Stay Young And Healthy

Poliquin perfectly outlines the value of vegetables and the pitfalls of grains. Something athletes know, whereas the rest of the population is continuously told to eat more grains.

"Eliminate grains in favor of vegetables, fruits, and nuts to stay young, healthy, and prevent disease. You’ll also have a better body composition and you will probably live longer. If you want to be as healthy as possible, processed and “whole” grains should be removed from your diet. The problem with whole grains is that they contain minimal fiber, are high glycemic, will rapidly raise blood sugar, contain lots of carbohydrates, a small amount of protein, and most have lots of gluten."
