Russell Wilson diet insite...

#1 Postby VeganBadass_CO » Mon May 05, 2014 10:33 pm

Want to be fit like Russell Wilson? Read interesting article in Men's Health about him, about his choosing between baseball and football, his exercise routines and yeah, his diet. Sharing just a part of it....

Note, he's not veg or vegan, but a high performance athlete that we can take tips from to tweak our diets to get max performance....

"During the off-season, Wilson has the green light from Seattle Seahawks director.....to eat as he pleases.....Most of his meals are based around a list of 'action foods'-nutrient dense options that address shortcomings in his macro- and micronutrient profile.".....

"Wilson's diet is derived from a list of 'Action Foods'...options on that list were selected to optimize the QBs profile so he's at his best performing on the field. For example, Wilson had to cut back on his dairy intake to avoid a 'low-grade inflammatory response', says Sam Ramsden, Seattle Seahawks director of player health and performance....."

SO what is on this list of Action Foods?

Almond Milk
Rice Milk
Coconut Milk
Whey protein isolates (yeah, skip that! - whey can trigger same inflammation response)
Flax
Pumpkin Seeds
Wild salmon (again, I'd say skip, but if you gotta do fish, DON'T do farmed!)
Olives
Dark chocolate
Nuts
Avocados
Watermelon
Asparagus
Mushrooms
Oatmeal
Spinach
Whole Grains

Breakfast:
1 cup oats
1/2 cup raspberries
1 scoop protein mixed into 1 cup almond milk....(note he uses whey...substitute PEA protein)
1 oz pumpkin seeds

Lunch
2 cups spinace
1/2 cup sliced red peppers
1/2 cup shitake mushrooms
1/2 avocado
1 grilled chicken breast (substitute)
1 tbsp olive oil
salt/pepper to tase
2 cups watermelon
1 cup coconut milk
2 squares dark chocolate

Dinner
3 oz salmon (substitute)
1 oz crushed cashews as breading for above
10 spears grilled asparagus
1 serving sugar free (and vegan!) jello..

Like I said, not vegan, but a great model for those new to the lifestyle of how to eat. We get confused getting trained to count macros (calories, fat, protein, etc.) but I've been in the lifestyle so long and have long since focused more on the micro.....

Sounds pretty progressive. Its definitely trending in pro sports to go more plant based. It will be a slow transition before it gets to be the norm due to some major marketing psychological brainwash that's been done in this country over the last 40 years but it will happen. Science will win!
