Food Group 5

  Blog, Community Blog   0   

Hello all,

I’ve talked to many of you about this, and know that several of you have been patiently waiting the last two months for this to get started (I appreciate that). So without further a due I would like to formally invite any of you CrossFit Squamish athletes to participate in FOOD GROUP 5.

Here’s the offer:

This is for people who are serious about making changes to their way of eating and have goals attached to that (weight loss, performance, heath, etc).

This will be a strict Paleo prescription with a weigh and measure attached so we can keep data and make changes based on facts and numbers not feelings.

Prior to our first weekly meeting you will be required to read and watch a number of articles and videos (this is non negotiable as this process is all about you learning). You will also require a $25 subscription to the CrossFit Journal for some of this material.

For the four weeks that follow our first meeting you will be required to eat under the guidelines of the Food Group and keep a food log (results are only as good as they are measurable, observable, and repeatable).

After our first meeting we will meet another 4 times (once each week) as we introduce new components and check in on how the last week went.

This is also not by any means something you should feel forced into, if you feel like:

-it’s not for you
-you’re too busy
-you already have a great diet
-how could the food pyramid possible be leading you astray?

No worries, you’re all good. I have no intention of spending the next 4 weeks “selling you” on what you’re up to, or dragging you through the process.

IF, you can’t even believe that someone is willing to help you out for five weeks of nutrition with the sole intention being on the betterment of you, then let’s do this sh*t:)

Email me by Sunday May 5th if you would like to participate and I will send you the reading list and all the info you require.

Cost: $00.00. I want your absolute best efforts for 5 weeks, nothing more, nothing less.

Start date: 7:30PM Thursday, May 9th

Meeting Place: CrossFit Squamish
