A New Take on the 80/20 Rule

I’m sure most of us have been told by fitness or nutritional experts that losing weight and living healthy lifestyles can be maintained by a focus on 80% nutrition and 20% physical activity. It’s a pretty longstanding concept. However, many individuals still have a hard time processing this idea. Hitting the gym hard won’t negate the 800 calorie meal you ate at the local burger shop. This is why I wanted to share a different approach to this 80/20 Rule.

I recently came across a different perspective of this old idea from Mark Sisson, fitness author of the best-selling The Primal Blueprint, who stated, “80% of your body composition is determined by how you eat.” So in essence, your body is a reflection of your food choices. This is a very tough concept to accept; even I struggled with it.

I’ve recently recovered from my holiday weight gain. It was this month-long binge that truly illustrated just how detrimental poor food choices can be. Both my body composition and overall health were negatively affected. I also had digestive issues, slept terribly, had low energy levels, and compromised my immune system. As soon as I went back to my Paleo eating habits, not only did I lose the weight I gained, my overall health benefited too. Now, I’m sleeping like a baby, my skin is healthier, my body is recovering better from workouts and I’ve even been able to escape the office flu. Go immune system!

It can be very difficult to digest, but it’s a fact that we must all face: every single food item we consume is either benefiting our bodies, or damaging them. Body composition is just one of the many side effects of poor nutritional choices. Additional damages can include a variety of health problems. Some are minor (low energy levels, headaches, skin breakouts) and some major (digestive problems, compromised immune function, heart disease). Although weight gain is always the primary concern when we think of being unhealthy, when we look at the big picture, our diets affect every aspect of our health. Our health becomes compromised with every cookie, every soda, and every unhealthy food choice we make.

I, of all people, understand the temptation of unhealthy foods. After a grueling race or endurance event, will occasionally surrender to the temptation of a donut or two. Believe me, I am very well aware of their slim-to-none nutritional composition. However, I make sure to quickly bounce back to my Paleo diet and don’t allow a donut to send me down a downward spiral. We all need a donut, burrito, cupcake or other indulgence in our lives every now and then if we don’t want to drive ourselves crazy. The key is to understand the effects these choices will have on our heath. Eating a cupcake for a special occasion won’t hurt us, constantly consuming sugary, processed foods will.

The first step towards optimal wellness is making sure that your body is equipped with the essential nutrients needed to supplement a healthy diet. Ideally, you can add Beyond Tangy Tangerine® 2.0 Citrus Peach Fusion to your diet. It includes essential vitamins and minerals, plus a PrePro™ Prebiotic and Probiotic Blend to support a healthy digestive system and nutrient uptake. BTT 2.0 is a staple to every diet and will help ensure the healthy food you consume is being digested adequately and transported to vital organs and systems that will support an overall healthy body.

Stop compromising your health! Prevention is the key!
