Say Hi To Good Saturated Fats and Bye To Cheap Processed Carbs for better performance in your Sport, Work and Life

Saturated fats like Coconut Oil are an ideal fuel for your mind and body. Remember, your brain is 60% fat and mother’s milk is 50% fat.

Basketballers Le Bron James and Kobe Bryant – Bryant focuses on eating only pasture-fed produce, limiting his intake of carbohydrates, and erasing sugar and processed foods from his diet. The result? “I feel like I can run all day long,” Bryant says. “A lot of that has to do with diet and being committed to it, and watching what I eat.”
