The Calisthenics Diet For natural gains

1 Simple Rule To Optimize Your Diet

Don’t even try to deny it.

You are probably still not using an optimal diet.

Not because you don’t know what you need to do, but simply because…

Well…it’s easier not to.


On the other hand you would love to look ripped, have a six pack and feel more energetic.

But what can you change right now that will give you almost instant results?

The proof is in the pudding.

Eat the way your body was meant to.


It’s just that simple.



Although nowadays it is being marketed as the paleo diet.

Essentially what it boils down to is a your-body-was-meant-to-eat-this-evolutionary-based-upon-thousands-of-years-of-food-adaptation-diet…or something like that.

This comes down to one simple rule: If a caveman/woman couldn’t eat it, neither should you.

Here is why.



Paleo Diet



Time To Get Back To Caveman Times


It doesn’t really sound like hocus pocus to you does it?

It has probably give you a ‘ooh-duh-of-course’ feeling.

While there are tons of nuances, this nutrition is by far the easiest to find and apply in your overal dieting scheme.

Use the simple question: ‘Would I eat this if I were a caveman?’, as s simple rule of thumb.


Mind that while this discusses the food intake, it does not mention the feeding period, which is often forgotten in mainstream paleolithic diets.

That’s why I recommend using the nutrients from a paleolithical perspective in combination with intermittent fasting.

Which is also based upon a paleolithical perspective, but which focuses on when to eat.


For a more thorough explanation you can get yourself the Paleo Diet Ebook.

While you don’t really look like a caveman or woman anymore on the outside, your body and the way it works hasn’t really changed a lot.

It doesn’t mean you have to go hunting for deer or walk with some animal fur on your back.

It just means being more thoughtful about what you fuel your body with.

Use it or lose it.

  1. Well,it’s a very interesting and well designed post!
    I will now consider the paleto diet more seriously.
    Salutations from Algeria brother!

    1. Hey Sofiane,

      Thanks for your comment!

      I can highly recommend it, but you should try it for yourself. Because I believe the best teacher is first hand experience.

      If you have any other questions let me know!

  2. I have to admit, I am completely confused right now after reading many of the diet and nutrition articles on this site. Every other source I’ve read has accentuated the need for grains, whole wheat, non fat milk, etc. This completely turns my idea of nutritious foods on it’s head. However, it makes a lot of sense even though i’m looking at my kitchen wondering what to do with the “nutritious” food that I have. I’m going to transition to this diet along with my training and see how things progress, despite my hesitations. Thanks for the great information.

    1. Hey Justin,

      I know exactly where you are coming from! I experienced the same when I found out about this, however when I started applying these principles I felt better than I ever had.

      Don’t be too harsh on yourself. Start of with 1-2 days in the week without any grains and slowly increase it to more days. Your body will need some time to adapt, but when it has adapted, you will get and see results you never thought possible.

      Most of the ‘nutritious foods’ you have standing in your kitchen right now are filled with sugars…go check the labels, you’ll be surprised at how many hidden sugars your food contains.

      Hesitation is good, it means you are critical and you should always be critical, never accept anything as the gospel truth…that’s what I always say and always do. Try it for yourself first, before you make your choice and conclusions.

  4. Hi,

    Oatmeal with apple or other fruits – bad or good idea for breakfast?
    In a year I’ve lost 26kg of my weight only changing my diet (no workout) and Oatmeal was my daily breakfast.
    In this week I started 6 month workout plan from your website and now I’m plannig my diet.

    1. Hey Sylwester,

      I personally don’t recommend eating too much grains, preferably as little as possible. What you are doing right now seems to work for you so far, however I believe that if you would stick to the diet and nutrients as presented in this blog, things should get even better.

  5. Hi guys!, I have to say that I think that I’ve finally found something for myself. And thank you so much for this site.
    One thing only, I am interested about one muscle group, and that is hamstrings… How do you workout the?
    Thank you so much, and keep it up!!

    1. Hey Zinou,

      No, no, no…;)

      To lose weight you need to consume less calories than you burn.

      If you burn 2000 calories, but eat 2100 you will not burn anything.

      Because your body is in a calorie surplus and as long as you are in a surplus your body has no need to lose any fat.

      If you really want to lose weight, you need to get into a calorie deficit.

      Burn more than you consume. There are healthy and unhealthy ways to do this.

      But that’s the most important rule.

  6. Hi guys, I know you appreciate positive comments so here goes, a big thank you for all the work put into your site, the info is very good and also quite shocking when it comes to diet and how bad most eat,
    I am quickly changing my diet to the more natural, minimal refined sugars/processed foods with plenty of good lean meat fruit and veg, I’m now even cutting out dairy but that one is requiring a little more work than all else considering how much dairy is ingrained in our society, getting the family to do the same too, I’m now making equipment for bar work in the garden, so far so good, looking to emigrate in about 6 months time so I want to really go for it and hope to make some serious gains with the guidance from your good selves before I go 🙂

    1. Hey Phill,

      Haha, well you’ve been reading the comments, so in addition to thanking you for reading through those I also want to thank you for taking the time to leave on of your own :D.

      Definitely a big shock for most people and not an easy truth to swallow. Taking out the sugars and processed foods will give you the biggest bang for your buck. Take it one step at a time, some people tolerate dairy better than others and of course there are social and practical things that make it less realistic to cut. Anyways, you are becoming aware of what you are eating which is something most people don’t even pay a second of attention to during their 24 hour day.

      I hope all goes well with the bar and especially with the family and emigrating. If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know!
