FAST FORWARD YOUR RESULTS AT CROSSFIT REACH WITH GOOD NUTRITION
When it comes to getting results in your fitness, it is extremely important to follow good eating habits along with your CrossFit training.
Here are some recommendations for maximizing your results…
On of the most effective ways to improve your results is to eat following the Paleo Diet.
Paleo provides a balanced diet for CrossFit athletes that can improve performance with a reduced caloric intake. Consuming raw, natural foods on the Paleo diet, CrossFit athletes can also eliminate refined and processed carbohydrates that have been linked with coronary heart disease, diabetes and cancer. By consuming complex carbohydrates from vegetables and fruit, the Paleo diet controls insulin and overall hormone levels that can improve athletic performance during CrossFit workouts.
There are hundreds of books and thousands of Recipes that you can follow to enjoy a healthy Paleo diet…and the food taste good too!
With a focus on hormone control, the Paleo diet for CrossFit follows a “Zone” approach to breaking down macronutrient content into 40 percent of the calories from carbohydrates, 30 percent from protein and 30 percent from fat. Protein content should range from about 0.7 g to 1 g of protein per pound of bodyweight. For example, a 200-lb. CrossFit athlete will need to consume between 140 g and 200 g of protein. According to “The Paleo Diet for Athletes,” carbohydrate intake can increase to as much as 60 percent of the total calories as a sporting event or competition approaches. During this time, fat content will range from 20 percent to 25 percent.
