Here at CrossFit Long Island we believe that the term “CrossFit” is not only about the exercise regimen, but daily choices we are faced with in life. These decisions include food. We strongly believe that a commitment to the CrossFit program is only part of achieving your fitness goals. We all know what you put into your body will directly impact your success. We promise we won’t prescribe fad diets. Instead we recommend eating a balanced diet that will help your body run at its optimal level for physical and mental needs.
What Should I Eat? Simplicity
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. Food is perishable. The stuff with long shelf life is all suspect. If you follow these simple guidelines you will benefit from nearly all that can be achieved through nutrition.
