From the article...I do CrossFit, why am I still fat?
-The Box Magazine, March 19, 2015
"When new members join my gym, I tell them to expect some results. They can count on improved strength, speed and stamina with the right programming and commitment to attendance. But if they are looking for more than a great workout with some really rad health benefits — if they are looking for peak performance and a physique that reflects that — they need to put in time outside the gym. See, you can work out as much as you want, but if you’re not pushing yourself, if you eat crap, if you binge on beer and if you indulge in soda several times per day, you probably won’t get the results you’re looking for. It’s a common occurrence to hear people say they work out so they can eat whatever they want. And for some folks, that works well for their life balance. But if it’s the pooch that pains you or the lingering love handles that haunt you, your philosophy must change.
To trim down and get rid of the extra stuff you so dislike, you must examine your eating habits first. Food is fuel. The wrong things can slow you down, cause chronic health issues and create a body that won’t transform the way you want. Eating healthy and whole foods works wonders. Not only will your performance improve and your overall health benefit, but you’ll also sleep better, recover better and probably get rid of that stubborn spare tire. If you believe your food intake to be impeccable, maybe it’s time to look more closely at your carb, protein and fat breakdown and determine whether anything is in excess."
