Welcome to Jersey Devil CrossFit’s nutrition blog! Isn’t this exciting?
Have you ever seen this pyramid before? This pyramid was created by Greg Glassman, CrossFit’s founder. The idea is that each level builds upon the ones below it. Nutrition is at the pyramid’s base. That’s a big deal. Nutrition lays the molecular foundation for fitness and health. It’s what fuels us. It is what makes us, us and yet it’s often times overlooked! How can that be? How can we ignore something so essential? We can’t.
If your nutrition sucks, there’s no way you’re hitting your potential. If you’ve hit a wall in your training or you feel crappy all the time, we’d be willing to bet that’d get better with improved nutrition. If your numbers are awesome, we’d also be willing to bet they’d be even better with improved nutrition.
This stuff is really important to us, not just as CrossFit athletes, but as human beings. You don’t need to do CrossFit to benefit from the information coming soon to our blog. We welcome all readers whether you’re into CrossFit or not. What’s important is that you want to make a change in your health for the better.
Lemme just lay down some ground rules.
Be creative. Have fun with your food. Never take yourself too seriously. Feel free to experiment with anything we post.
Keep an open mind. Try new things, you might like them. That goes for foods and ideas. Question common knowledge and don’t believe everything you read.
Don’t be shy, we won’t be. Speak up. If you want to know more about something, tell us.
Be patient. Results take time.
