As I am sure you are well aware by now my interest lays primarily in food. I understand the importance of exercise and totally get why people love sport but it’s the foods we eat that are much more likely to cause us to be healthy or not.
You can exercise three times a week and improve your health, but if you never address what you eat then your results and successes will be very slow going. Research has shown time and again that unless we address our nutrition as well as our activity our fat loss results and health gains are going to be slow to insignificant.
I’ve also seen how merely changing what someone eats can drastically improve their health. I’ve had Fit Campers come off thyroid medication, anti-depressants, blood pressure tablets and medication for IBS to name but a few over the years all because they followed an improved eating regime.
These bars are probably as good as you would make at home, if not better. The ingredients are all sourced to be organic and sulphite free. The dried fruit is without added sugar too. Some fruit types like berries are very tricky to find sugar free in the supermarkets.
Paleo is a way of eating to reflect how we ate in our hunter gatherer days. It is a grain free regime that also excludes all processed food stuffs, refined sugars, vegetable oils, dairy, legumes, peanuts and soya.
It’s high in plants, meat, eggs, seafood, nuts and seeds, healthy fats and seasonal fruits. Not dissimilar to how we encourage you try at least your first four weeks with us 🙂
These bars were created by Cookham nutritionist Suzi Walker as she was finding it hard to find grain free bars for both herself and her clients. The UK’s first Paleo bar was born.
They are very new to the market and will be available in some supermarkets and health food shops. FastTrack Fit Camp will be able to supply them in boxes of 18 or individually.
