“You can’t out-train bad nutrition”… You might have heard this before. You may even have heard it and thought – challenge accepted! And then there comes a time when you realise how true it is, and you start to fight it less, and start to eat in a way that benefits You the most.
If you aren’t meeting your weight or fitness goals, looking at what and how you eat is going to be an excellent place to start. We generally follow the CrossFit guidelines on nutrition:
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.
Paleo or Zone methods of eating can be beneficial, and we will help you to find what works best for you and gives you the results you want.
Our advice… when you choose to change your diet, do so gradually. Quitting anything cold turkey rarely has lasting results. Start with the easier substitutes and notice any changes to your body (mood, energy levels, sleep, weight etc.) and tweak as required. Using this method will help ensure a long-lasting change.
Have more nutritional questions? Please ask questions of the CrossFit 3000 Team before or after one of your sessions.
