Hello Boot Camp Pasadena! My name is Amy Kubal and I am a registered and licensed dietitian.  I am excited to bring Paleo Principles and share my enthusiasm for nutrition and performance with you!  First a little about me… I received an MS in Nutrition from Colorado State University in 2004 and have been practicing in the field since.  I am currently the consulting dietitian for the Training Bible Coaching, and for Robb Wolf, I also have a personal blog – Fuel As Rx.  Now Stephen and I are going to work together to help you reach optimal performance and health. 

I am also a fairly serious athlete and recovering LSD (Long Slow Distance/Chronic Cardio) addict.  I have won two marathons (the only two I've run), and several 5K and 10K races.  Additionally, I have competed in the Pike's Peak Accent, placing third in my division and have summitted all 59 of Colorado's 14,000 foot mountains and quite a few peaks under 14,000.  Currently I am LOVING CrossFit and have been following the CrossFit Strength Bias and CrossFit Endurance programs with awesome results.  (These programs are very similar to Boot Camp style workouts!) 
As far as my diet philosophy goes...  Well, first a little history.  As a recovering LSD/Chronic Cardio addict, I subsided on probably 75-85% carbs for far longer than I would like to admit.  About a year ago, I had an epiphany, (brought on by my Paleo friend Scott).  He challenged my way of thinking and everything that I had been taught about diet and training.  I started digging into the research and found out nearly everything that I had been taught and was practicing was WRONG!  It was then that I started changing things.  Now on a smarter exercise program and with a diet that is Paleo rather than Dean Ornish or USDA, I have been able to accomplish some pretty awesome things (like pull-ups and a marathon win).  Best of all - I feel GREAT! 
So, I want to help you reach your full potential too!  Together Stephen and I can help you get stronger, leaner, and healthier.  No matter what your goals are - whether it is weight loss, mass gain, leaning out, maintaining what you've got, or simply answering your questions about diet and nutrition - tell me what you need and I'll help you. 
I am excited to get this started - so let me know what you think and what you need.  Because, "You can't out train a sucky diet."  I look forward to working with you soon!
