Diet

The Endura Paleo-Performance Eating Plan is a diet designed for athletes to maximise performance, lessen muscular pain and improve recovery after exercising.

It is based on a stone-age diet where man was an athlete with high physical demands and needed to recover fast.

Key health features of The Endura Paleo-Performance Eating Plan are:

  • High nutrient density foods – for maximum energy.
  • Alkalising, not acidic foods – to support recovery.
  • Low glycaemic load – for lean body composition.
  • Anti-inflammatory oils – for pain and injury.

Man evolved over a 2 million year period with a diet composed of natural, nutrient dense foods; fruits, vegetables, lean meat and healthy oils from nuts and seeds. It is only in the last 10,000 years (1% of our genetic evolution) that man has introduced foods refined via the agricultural revolution.

The diet of our active, strong cave man ancestors is ideal for athletes looking to maximise their performance.

There is a substantial body of evidence illustrating the benefits of an alkalising diet for athletes including:

  • Improved endurance and anaerobic performance.1
  • Reduced muscle breakdown and preservation of lean muscle mass.2

How Do I Use My Supplements?

Fast acting, high energy supplements at times of intense exercise can act to “turbo boost” your performance by providing a source of glycogen for energy production. During recovery it is important to have adequate amino acids available. Endura Max Cramp and Muscle Ease can relieve muscle pain in athletes.
