Nutrition is the foundation of everything you do in the gym, and is at the very root of your overall health. you cannot – we repeat – you cannot outtrain a bad diet. Our goal at CrossFit Wrath is to educate our members regarding the importance of a proper, varied diet – to the extent that it becomes second nature to make healthy lifestyle choices. we regularily hold nutrition workshops and seminars, and all of our coaches are properly trained in the “paleo philosophy” of eating. Therefore, an integral part of what we do here is to teach you how to eat!   The goal here is to fuel the body, burn (or maintain) fat, all while building muscle.

Basic CrossFit Dietary Guidelines

 What should I eat?

In plain language, base your diet on garden vegetables, especially greens, lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch, and no sugar. That’s about as simple as we can get. Many have observed that keeping your grocery cart to the perimeter of the grocery store while avoiding the aisles is a great way to protect your health. “Real” food is perishable – the stuff with long shelf life is all circumspect. If you follow these simple guidelines you will benefit from nearly all that can be achieved through nutrition.  dreamstime_m_52637835

What foods should I avoid?

Excessive consumption of high-glycemic carbohydrates is the primary culprit in nutritionally caused health problems. High glycemic carbohydrates are those that raise blood sugar too rapidly. They include rice, bread, candy, potato, sweets, sodas, and most processed carbohydrates. Processing can include bleaching, baking, grinding, and refining. Processing of carbohydrates greatly increases their glycemic index, a measure of their propensity to elevate blood sugar.

NUTRITIONAL GUIDANCE

 

We believe so strongly in the power of proper nutrition that we offer two additional monthly nutritional services: food journal review, and meal planning. Coach Megan has spent the past four years delving head first into the “Paleo World”, learning from the top professionals in the industry. In addition to obtaining her OPEX CCP Level 1 Nutritional Module, she has attended hundreds of lectures and self-study programs, and for the past two years attended the World’s largest Paleo event, Paleo(fx).

All “Nutritional Guidance” begins with a detailed assessment of your goals pertaining to aesthetics, performance, and lifestyle. From there, we break down your detailed plan into phases: Protein, Food Quality, Emotions, Food Intolerances, Carb Experimentation, Fats, Lifestyle, Longevity, and Supplementation. It is important to note that overall health is not only about the food that

you put in your mouth! Sleep (recovery), lifestyle factors, and stress are HUGE components in achieving your goals inside and outside of the gym.

Food Journal Review entails logging your food on a weekly basis! At the end of each week you will turn in your log along with any questions or concerns. Within 24 hours, you will receive comments, critiques, and a structured plan of action from us, with your goals in mind.

Meal Planning is a much more in-depth approach. We create a weekly meal plan tailored to your work schedule, your ability to commit time in the kitchen, and your goals. Each week you will give feedback regarding your compliance to the meal plan, and other related information pertaining to your goals.
