Sound nutrition and lifestyle is the basis of health, wellness and certainly athletic performance. As part of their membership, clients at the gym have access to regular nutrition and lifestyle counseling appointments as well as seminars throughout the year.
At CrossFit Littleton we advocate a whole food approach. In terms of nutrition, this basically means moving away from processed, highly addictive, low nutrient density foods in the diet and towards whole foods that are nutrient dense (lean animal proteins, vegetables, nuts and seeds). This however is no easy task. The modern American diet is full of refined sugar and highly processed carbohydrates (many sugars). Most of us are addicted, literally, to our sweets, bread, pasta, rice, cereal etc.
So…the move towards better health, fitness and wellness is usually a process for most people. Please use this page as a resource to improve the quality of your life!
