What should you eat?
In a nutshell, from CrossFit.com, base your diet on garden vegetables, especially greens, lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch, and no sugar.
Simple enough right? Think of this as real food. Everything else is processed or made in a lab. A good rule of thumb is to do the majority of your shopping toward the outer edges of the supermarket. Stores will usually keep their meat, deli’s, fruits and vegetable sections on the outer sections of the market.
Another rule of thumb is if it has a label, then it probably isn’t food. We want to avoid these items as much as possible. Most items with food labels will indicate that it has been altered in some way by a human being. I am referring to a lab, and not a slaughterhouse. These items will usually lack the essential nutrients we need to support our efforts and have excessive calories or macronutrients that impede performance.
There has been a growing number of folks that have dedicated themselves to eating in this manner. You will often here it as eating Paleo or Primal.
