In very broad terms we follow the advice of Greg Glassman- CrossFit’s founder. “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise, but not excess body fat.” There are different methods to nutrition, but we find our trainees that have the best results conform to a more whole foods style of eating with reference to food quality and incorporate good carbohydrates, lean proteins and healthy fats proportionately at each meal and snack.
Nutrition is the foundation of health and fitness. You CANNOT out train a poor diet. 80% of the effectiveness of any training program comes from what you put in your mouth each and every day- regardless of the intensity of the training. However, many people just do not know what to do when it comes to diet. They try many different fad diets looking for a quick fix or instant gratification and end up failing. The missing link for many is that they are focusing on a diet, instead of a lifestyle change. We do not believe in anything that is too restrictive or difficult to follow with modern day life. The change should be implemented gradually, so that it becomes part of your lifestyle.
