Open Sky Fitness Podcast

Rob & Devon Dionne have been in the health and fitness world for over a decade. Devon is a Holistic Nutrition Counselor and GYROTONIC® Instructor. Rob is a certified personal trainer with NASM, holding advanced certification, CES, PES, MMA, and Weight Loss Specialist. He's also a level 1 Crossfit Instructor. This husband and wife team redefine what it means to be healthy in this fast paced, hectic world we live in. The Open Sky Fitness Podcast is perfect for men and women who are trying to get back in shape after neglecting their health after years of focusing on their jobs or building a family. Remember what it was like when you were 20 years old? Diet and exercise wasn't a thing. If you worked out for a few days or stopped eating cheese burgers for a week, you'd drop ten pounds. Too bad we can't live in that reality forever. Welcome to life after 30. Rob & Devon would like to help you find the right path for this moment in your life. We don't believe in going on a diet. We don't believe there's only one way to achieving the body you want. We do believe in creating a lifestyle that allows you to have the best of both worlds...eating delicious food and being healthy at the same time. It is possible. Just listen to our show and you'll see! If you have questions you'd like us to answer on our show or via email, feel free to contact Rob. If you'd just like to write us a letter and give us your feedback, we'd love that too. Send everything to Rob@OpenSkyFitness.com Thanks for listening! Enjoy the show.

The Power of Paleo to Heal Your Body

 

"You can start small. Just eliminate one thing at a time or try baby steps. Two steps forward is better than nothing when you're changing your health." - Cristina Curp of Castaway Kitchen

 

On this week's episode, Rob had a wonderful interview with Cristina Curp of Castaway Kitchen. They discussed how Cristina discovered she had an autoimmune disease and how not only she, but her entire family has turned towards eating healthy foods including Paleo based recipes.

On this episode, you'll also learn:

 

Healing Cristina's Hidradenitis Suppurativa with Paleo

For years, Cristina had Hidradenitis Suppurativa [HS] which is a chronic autoimmune disease which is incurable, extremely painful, skin disease. After years of seeking help from dermatologists, she decided that this was just the way her body was and she would always be like this.

Then, Cristina began to take out certain foods from her diet and noticed an extreme change. By leaving out night shades and gluten to follow a Whole 30 and Paleo based diet, she was able to heal her skin and leaky gut.

 

Autoimmune Disease and Nightshade Foods

What are nightshade foods? They belong to a particular food group family and include:

  • Tomatoes
  • Tomatillos
  • Eggplant
  • White Potatoes (not Sweet Potatoes)
  • Goji Berries
  • Tobacco
  • Peppers (bell peppers, chili peppers, paprika, tamales, tomatillos, pimentos, cayenne, etc)

 

Fast Twitch vs Slow Twitch Muscles

Rob and Devon also took some time at the beginning of the show to answer a question from the closed Open Sky Fitness Podcast group  on Facebook about fast twitch muscles vs slow twitch muscles. On the show, you'll learn about the difference between each muscle group and how to strengthen both of them.
