Know your numbers
To be the most successful with your nutrition goals, you need to be in the know.
+ calorie requirements
+ macronutrient numbers
+ anthropomorphic measurements (body numbers)
If you don’t know any of these numbers, how could you possibly know if you’re being successful or not?
Portion Control is King
If you did nothing else, this would be the most important thing you can do to best fuel your body.
A lot of us suffer from “don’t let food go to waste syndrome” where we eat everything that’s available in our kitchen, or the leftovers on our kids plate. The solution? Get yourself some really nice Tupperware and there is lunch tomorrow. (Bonus: you’ll save money!)
The main component of CrossFit is strength, and to support your strength development and the repair that is necessary after a workout you need to have an ample source of protein at every meal. You may have your protein staples like chicken, turkey, beef or even protein shakes. But you can get protein from other sources as well such as: lentils, beans, hempseed, green peas and more.
