What about nutrition?

In short, you can’t outwork a bad diet.  You might make some short-term gains, but your long-term fitness and indeed your HEALTH is what is at stake with your nutrition plan.

From CrossFit’s founder, Greg Glassman:
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar.  Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not bodyfat.

Pretty simple, huh?  But hard in practice to be perfect.  We’re not looking for perfection unless you’re planning on stepping on stage, but just in consistently making good choices.  Eat more of the good stuff (whole foods that don’t come in packages), eat less of the bad stuff (sugar, processed foods).

All of our coaches are very well practiced, if not educated, in sound nutrition habits.  Ask a coach for help in determining the nutrition strategy that works best for you — something you can stick with.
