“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, a little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.”

What should I eat?

Keeping your grocery cart to the perimeter of the grocery store while avoiding the aisles is a great way to protect your health. Food is perishable. The stuff with long shelf life is all suspect. If you follow these simple guidelines you will benefit from nearly all that can be achieved through nutrition. We don’t recommend you worry about completely eliminating anything from your diet at first. Small, frequent, and sustained changes are the key to success in nutrition.

Get in the zone!

The recommended diet plan for CrossFit athletes is The Zone Diet. It was developed by Dr. Barry Sears to reverse cellular inflammation, which 90% of Americans have high levels of, and can lead to weight gain, disease, and minimizes physical performance.
The zone diet principle is based on well balance nutrition ration of 40%-30%-30% for carbs, protein and fat. It also prescribes that you eat several small meals throughout the day. Every meal should be divided into blocks. A block is a unit of measure used to simplify the process of making balanced meals.
7 grams of protein = 1 block of protein 9 grams of carbohydrate = 1 block of carbohydrate 1.5 grams of fat = 1 block of fat (There is an assumption that there is about 1.5 grams of fat in each block of protein, so the total amount of fat needed per 1 block meal is 3 grams.)
