Oh, Nutrition

Nutrition is everything.  In fact, look at this Nutrition Pyramid designed by Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit.

I can’t emphasize enough how important nutrition is.  It is the foundation to a successful CrossFit pursuit.  You can work out day and night, but if you’re not eating right, you won’t reach your full potential.  There are a bunch of legit diets and ways of improving your health out there.  Not advocating to any one in particular, I would encourage you to look into one that would suit your personal needs and goals.  Whether it’d be Paleo, The Zone Diet, becoming Vegetarian or Vegan, etc, as long as you’re pursuing a healthier lifestyle, all things can and will improve.  Eat real foods! If it has a label, it probably isn’t natural.  Shop the veggies, meat, and fruit sections of the grocery store.  Making healthy choices in your food intake will not only improve your health, but also your mood, your body composition, your energy levels and ultimately your overall potential to be an excellent athlete.  Greg Glassman says, ” Nutrition can be a touchy topic, like politics or religion, that people take very personally, but good nutrition is the foundation not only for general health but also for high-performance fitness.” Don’t forget, nutrition is really everything.
