Nutrition plays a critical role in your fitness. Proper nutrition can amplify or diminish the effect of your training efforts. At CrossFit Spring Branch we believe that nutrition is a key component to fitness and functionality. Our members can expect nutrition coaching from their trainers.
Our “meal of the week” feature gives you an opportunity to try something new and comment on it. The meals that we prescribe are all “Paleo” approved and fit well into the “Zone Diet”.
What do I eat?
Our recommendation to “eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar” is adequate to the task of preventing the scourges of diet-induced disease, but more accurate and precise prescription is necessary to optimize physical performance.
Finely tuned, a good diet will increase energy, sense of well-being, and acumen, while simultaneously flensing fat and packing on muscle. When properly composed, the right diet can nudge every important quantifiable marker for health in the right direction.
Diet is critical to optimizing human function, and our clinical experience leads us to believe that Barry Sears’s “Zone diet” closely models optimal nutrition.
CrossFit’s best performers are Zone eaters. When our second-tier athletes commit to “strict” adherence to the Zone parameters, they generally become top-tier performers quickly. It seems that the Zone diet accelerates and amplifies the effects of the CrossFit regimen.
