What are you eating?

When are you eating it?  How much are you eating? These things must be considered if you want to improve your nutrition.

There is a wealth of information stemming from the Precision Nutrion website of Dr. John Berardi. This authority works with top Olympians and athletes in the UFC, NFL, NHL, NBA amoung many others.

Comparing various nutrition plans Zone/Paleo/Intermittent Fasting, what works for you?  We are intrigued by the findings and applaud the research and experiments in the name of healthy eating. Coach Larry and I are experimenting with some nutrition protocols and will update you as we truck on. Like what Larry and I are doing, soak up the the informaton like a sponge and come up with your own conclusions.  We are just reassuring you that there is much more than just Zone/Paleo out there to help.

This is not to confuse or inundate you with too much information.  However, we would like to keep a forum discussion (Click on FORUM link) about what works for people with very different lifestyles.  I know it is easy to become a nutrion zealot, and that is fine. We listen with an open mind. We want to know why your eating habits is either helping or hindering your progress.

Coach Michaela was very successful during her stint as a figure competitor.  She can attest, it was all about nutrition. Interestingly, she had rice cakes in her meal plan.  Could it be that her ancestral genes allow enzymes to more efficiently break down certain grains?  Reading into Dr. Berardi's research, we find numerous findings especially in regards to basing nutrition on someone's genetic heritage.  Real good stuff I say! 

With the 2012 CrossFit Open just around the corner, we want to be sure all our members are dialed in the fuel department.  Register if you have not done so already.  We will have special 2012 Open Thursdays and Sundays at the box where we will be Crushing the WODs that are to be announced!
