Get with the Rio Diet ™
Rio de Janiero... A land of beautiful beaches and even more beautiful bodies. What makes the people of Rio so attractive? Their passion for life and rich culture for sure! However, spend enough time in Rio and you’ll begin to understand that the Rio glow is a result of more than just positive attitude... Their diet consists of light, energizing and inspiring foods that help sustain an active, healthy lifestyle.
The Rio Diet™ has several simple but key components. Each one reinforces the other. First, eat fresh, nutrient dense foods like organic fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats and whole grains - avoiding refined sugars, processed foods and artificial additives. Secondly, eat light. When you’re eating nutrient dense foods a little goes a long way. Third, find a source of exercise you truly love and play daily.
It’s no wonder Açaí is Rio’s #1 superfood and a daily staple in their diet thanks to it’s dense nutrients (antioxidants, healthy omegas) and it’s super easy to digest (doesn’t weigh you down). You’ll find people eating an açaí bowl or drinking an açaí smoothie for breakfast, after a workout or as a healthy snack. An Açaí lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle.
Following the lead of our friends in Rio will certainly help you look and feel your best.
