There has been a lot of talk around CF7 lately about Paleo, Zone, what you can eat, what you can’t, how much you can eat, and why nutrition plays such an important role in CrossFit.

I recently read this tiny rant about Paleo, and I couldn’t agree with it more. Eating clean is really a lifestyle choice – you simply feel better without all of the sugars and grains that we often think we can’t live without. Your workout times improve, your recovery is quicker, and you just simply feel good.

I read a statement not long ago that said, “Eating for feelings = fat; eating for fuel = fit.” You have to make a choice every day on how you fuel your body. Do you want to be fit and perform at your most optimal level? I know, I know, you are saying, “Yes, but I’m not competing in Games. It’s ok if I have a coke.” Sure it is. But did you know, if you drink just one coke a day for year, that adds an extra 15 pounds to your body? Think about it. You’ve had an olympic lift where you added an extra 10 pounds, and all of the sudden, the weight was too heavy to lift. Think about what adding 10-15 pounds does to your body….

So, how do you get started and know what to eat? It can all be a little overwhelming at first. Think of it as “food worth eating“, and just remember, eat meats, nuts and seeds, vegetables, and fruit. A good rule of thumb is if your food once had a soul or a face, you can eat it 🙂 — stick with that, and you are good to go. Also read through the nutrition tab above – we have put together tons of recipes, menu plans, etc. for you!

There are several sites that provide recipes, meal plans and more. Here are a few of my favorites:

Multiply Delicious (they also have meal plans for free)

Paleo on a budget (Paleo doesn’t have to be expensive – it can be, but it doesn’t have to be)

Everyday Paleo

At the end of the day, all that really matters is how you feel. Forget about the number on the scale. Forget about WOD. How does your body feel? If you feel great, you are doing what is right for you. If you don’t, tweak some things and see how you feel.

    Did this WOD late last week…10:03, 85 #. I definitely underestimated how heavy the thrusters were going to feel – good WOD.

    I was looking forward to this about as much as a trip to Dallas.
    8:07 RX After my 100th thruster a few weeks ago,there’s a good reason I haven’t gone near them since.

    Good class this AM, nice work David on the RX. R2- no mohawk no beard- I don’t even know who you are anymore.

    13:40 using 75lbs should have gone heavier and focused on form. Fun WOD!!!!
