Food for Thought and Thought for your Food

The CrossFit dietary prescription
Protein should be lean and varied and account for about 30% of your total caloric load. Carbohydrates should be predominantly low-glycemic and account for about 40% of your total caloric load. Fat should be predominantly monounsaturated and account for about 30% of your total caloric load.
What Should I Eat?
In plain language, base your diet on garden vegetables, lean meats, nuts, seeds, little starch, and almost no sugar. That's about as simple as we can get. Many have observed that keeping your grocery cart to the perimeter of the grocery store while avoiding the aisles is a great way to protect your health. Food is perishable. The stuff with long shelf life is all suspect. If you follow these simple guidelines you will benefit greatly.
What Foods Should I Avoid?
Excessive consumption of high-glycemic carbohydrates are the primary culprit in nutritionally caused health problems. Some carbs in moderation are a good thing. Not all carbs are evil! Remember there are carbohydrates even in vegetables. High glycemic carbohydrates are those that raise blood sugar too rapidly. These are the carbs to avoid. They include things like candy, sweets, sodas, and most processed carbohydrates. Processing can include bleaching, grinding, and refining. Processing of carbohydrates greatly increases their glycemic index, a measure of their propensity to elevate blood sugar.
