Nutrition is a key component of the CrossFit program. What does it prescribe?

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

Our CrossFit Mechanix coaches also have some simple tips to help you succeed at the dinner table:

  1. Avoid Processed Foods. If it’s in a box or a bag, it’s probably processed.

  2. Follow the 40-30-30 Plan. 40 percent of your calories should come from carbohydrates, 30 percent from protein, and 30 percent from fat.

  3. Eat Pasture Raised or Wild Caught Meat. This actually changes the fat that is in the meat from “bad” fat to “good” fat!

  4. Restrict Sugar and Alcohol. These are “empty” calories that are simply converted into fat by the body.

  5. Don’t Overthink The Rest. If you follow these simple guidelines, you don’t need to worry about complicated diets.
