As we’re slowly ramping back up from lockdown, school is back in session and the whole family is getting back to some form of a schedule, it’s time to make your physical and mental health a priority. Many of us have been a bit lax during quarantine and the summer, so it’s time to get back to some good, healthy eating habits. Fueling and moving your body is the best way to reduce stress, feel good, stay healthy, and conquer it all! No better way to do so than with a little friendly wellness challenge!
OUR GENERAL NUTRITION PHILOSOPHY
Let’s face it. Nutrition is a lot like politics. It’s personal. It’s sometimes messy. And you’re probably going to regret bringing it up with friends and family. But rest assured, we can make nutrition less controversial for you and everyone around you.
The philosophy espoused by CrossFit is fairly straight forward: Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.
While that’s not a terribly actionable nutrition plan, it certainly gets to the point. Our goal in conducting these challenges is to expose you to different ways of eating so you can choose what works best for you. It’s not necessarily meant to be the end all, be all of nutrition, but hopefully you can learn something about your body and sustain some of the healthy habits you created along the way.
GOALS OF THIS CHALLENGE
Putting the best quality and the right quantity into your body helps it to run efficiently and effectively. It’s the best of both worlds, you feel good on the inside and look good on the outside. We’re also going to incorporate hydration, working out and sleep, as bonuses!
This challenge you’ll have a QUANTITY CONSTRUCT for every meal, which you’ll fit QUALITY foods into.
Yes, there are elimination foods, BUT with a point system which allows you to decide when to have “treat” meals.
