TFF 003: Tony Federico on the Basics of the Paleo Diet

June 2, 2014

Hey hey!

I’ve got 2 things to share with you guys today!

#1) I had an amazing time recording my third Funky Fork podcast episode with Tony Federico. He’s a fellow northeast Floridian, trainer, blogger at FED (Fitness In An Evolutionary Direction) (name soon to be changed!), writer and weekly podcaster for for Paleo Magazine.

We discuss the total loss of his thyroid, how to eat Paleo at every day restaurants, how enjoying a meal could lead to better health & relationships and we may even throw in a couple bad Austrailian/British accents!

#2) I’ve agreed to take on the challenge of taking a photo per day for the month of June. I want to get better about using Instagram so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity!

2 – Monday, ugh! What’s keeping you going today?
3 – Who made you smile today?
4 – Look up. What do you see?
5 – #TBT Share a photo from a past summer trip!
6 – National Doughnut Day! Snap a pic celebrating! Or, what did you have instead?!

8 – Time to relax before the start of the week. What does relaxing look like to you?

Prepping my meals! If I start out my week on the right foot, I end on the right food! Preparation is key!

June 2: Monday, ugh! What’s keeping you going today?

Paleo Magazine

My Upgraded Coconut Charcoal. I swear by this stuff! It’s better than any caffeine or other stimulant out there. If I’m feeling sleepy or right need a boost of energy before a workout, I pop 2 of these and my mind is clear, I’m awake and naturally energetic. These ARE NOT energy pills or anything of the sort. They are for detoxing your body— READ EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT THEM HERE!!! I’ve taken at least 2 capsules every day for about 5-6 months and I love them! I’ve never felt better!  

Cheers to a new week full of lots of possibilities…keep on keepin’ on!
