For athletes and very active people, a few necessary tweaks are needed to The Paleo Diet to help your maximize performance.
To fuel your muscles for hard workouts, you will need to eat concentrated carbohydrate sources to refuel muscle glycogen, particularly before and after workouts. Yams, sweet potatoes, bananas, dried fruit, (see Chapter 1) are great sources of concentrated starches and sugars, and unlike refined grains, they are net alkaline yielding thereby preventing the loss of an amino acid (glutamine) from your bloodstream that helps to preserve your muscle mass.
In the post-exercise period, besides concentrated sugars and starches, make sure you get plenty of lean protein, as it is your best source of the three branch chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) which directly stimulate muscle growth and regeneration.
Tip of the Day: Have a post-workout regimen
