Here at LCHF Endurance, JERF is one of our favourite acronyms.
It's so simple, but it's still so easy to get trapped in convention and be tempted to count calories, eat low fat or fuel off 90 grams of carbohydrate per hour.
Here’s what you need to remember:
- Food that comes out of the ground, off a tree or from an animal is always the most nutrient dense and whole food source of nutrition.
- The biggest change you can make to improve your health is to significantly reduce your packaged food consumption.
- An anti-inflammatory approach free from gluten, refined sugars and trans fats will optimise your health, energy levels, hormones, performance and recovery.
A very general guide is a total intake of 15-20% carbohydrates, 20% protein, and 60-65% healthy fats per day. Nutrition should be extremely relative however, so we are here to teach you how to eat for your individual goals.
We believe LCHF should be identical to JERF – which means you need to be ready to buck convention, break up with the food pyramid and quit the pasta pasty. Strap in for the ride!
