I like to eat. I like to eat meat. In fact, I like to eat a lot of things outside of just meat but one thing that really had me confused when I came to the CrossFit world is how do I eat to perform? What type of food should I be eating to maintain this level of fitness/working out. It wasn’t until I took my CrossFit Level 1 Trainer class that I learned about the Zone diet, Paleo, carbs, sugars, glucose, etc… But we aren’t talking about Weight Watchers here, I couldn’t seem to find a good CrossFit meal plan and I know it can all be kind of confusing but there are folks out there that are smarter than me blogging & writing on the subject, so without further ado, here are 5 CrossFit meal plans and nutrition
