Nutrition of the Week:
If we want our body to perform well on the day of competition, we need to fuel it with the highest quality fuel we can in the weeks leading up to the event. Let’s go over some healthy eating basics to lay a foundation for how your nutrition should look over the next few weeks.
CrossFit says, “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.” I think this is a great place to start. For many of us, we have seen the evolution in CrossFit from athletes that were performing on way less fuel than what they needed, to the current level of elite athletes that have teams of people dedicated to making sure their athlete is fully fueled for both training year-round and each specific event. It is super exciting to see what athletes can do when they are properly fueled!
Most of our meals should consist of a protein, a carbohydrate, and a fat. I know you’ve been adding protein to each meal, so this week let’s focus on adding in carbs and fats to complete our meals this week.
