A GREAT article from Robb Wolf at CrossFit Norcal summarizing why we take the stance on nutrition that we do:
You might have noticed that the nutrition approach we recommend at CrossFit NorCal is a bit…oh, shall I say, contrarian? Where the USDA, AMA and the rest of the Government sponsored entities recommend grains and legumes as the base of the diet, we recommend lean meat, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Thatâ€™s crazy, right? arenâ€™t we going to die from heart disease and cancer if we eat meat? How will we ever get fiber if we donâ€™t eat grains!? I mean, fruit and veggies…what have they got to offer?! Iâ€™m being fecetious here, I hope you get that. I do understand our recommendations fly in the face of what we are told to eat from nearly every source you can find…whatâ€™s the deal? Well…the deal is, our nutritional approach, a diet the attempts to emulate that of our paleolithic ancestors, is without a doubt the best route to optimized performance and health. Big claim? Yep, but easy to back up. Folks start with us, tweak their food, then look, feel and perform better. Every measurable bio-marker such as cholesterol, triglycerides or blood pressure improve…depression resolves. It just works, because this is the way we are wired to eat. But hey, what the hell do I know? Iâ€™m just the crazy guy in the shed telling people to do weird stuff like sleep more, take fish oil and increase their protein intake. How could I possibly be right about this? Well…here are a few interesting things for yâ€™all to consider . . .
