No matter how hard you try, you cannot out train a sloppy diet.
BTB’s nutritional philosophy is quite simple. We do not like the term “diet” nor do we believe in anything that is too restrictive or difficult to follow with the modern day lifestyle. We know that 80% of the effectiveness of any training program comes from what you put in your mouth each and every day- regardless of the intensity of the training. This is why we take the nutrition component of our services so seriously.
What do we advise for our clients? In very broad terms we follow the advice of Greg Glassman- CrossFit’s founder. “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise, but not excess body fat.” There are a million ways to skin the cat- but we find our trainees that have the best results conform to a more whole foods style of eating with reference to food quality and incorporate good carbohydrates, lean proteins and healthy fats proportionately at each meal and snack.
By tweaking around with the proportions of protein vs. fat vs. carbohydrates, we are able to dial in performance fueling programs for our trainees based on their individual goals and their desire to succeed. We are constantly serving up fresh nutritional information on our Nutrition and Performance Blog. Feel free to browse through this, and make comments when something interests you.
