My journey to health has been a long one… growing up as an athletic kid in California, I was a devout carbetarian. My pediatrician told my parents to allow me to eat whatever I was willing to eat because I was such a picky kid, which meant I lived on cheerios and peanut butter sandwiches until I was 11. I probably had the least diverse diet in western society.  In high school, the trend continued. Being a four sport athlete, I could eat whatever I wanted (or so I thought) and I commonly would eat a bowl of sugary cereal for breakfast, some sort of pizza product from the cafeteria at lunch with three...

This topic is huge. This article will explain the basics of human digestion. For more information about gut health, join me on Saturday to talk about things such as IBS, Candida overgrowth, and Celiac Disease.

Digestion works from top to bottom. This means it begins in your mouth? Right? Well yes, kinda. When we eat is not just the function of eating, swallowing, and digesting. How we perceive eating a meal, affects what happens the rest of the way. For example, if I’m scarfing down a Starbucks breakfast sandwich in the car on the way to my son’s swim practice (which I NEVER do), what happens physiol...

Adrenal fatigue is a term you have probably heard. It’s become more mainstream, as more people realize they have it. When I look at our members, I see hard working people. Not just in the gym. But home, work, play, everywhere. We commute to work, we take our kids to practices, we have employees, we have bosses, and in between we have Facebook. So what does this have to do with those little adrenal glands? In a word: STRESS.

First, what are the adrenal glands? Well, in this picture, they look like tiny T-bone steaks...

They are the two glands that sit atop the kidneys. They are small, about 3 inches lo...

Next week the holiday season officially kicks off with Thanksgiving weekend. This is a great opportunity to catch up with family and friends, eat some delicious foods, have a few drinks, and shop till you drop.

For most people, it also marks the start of big, warm, snuggly clothes season, which is convenient, because as the weather gets colder, you have the perfect cover to hide all those pounds you’re about to gain. Yes, the vicious cycle of holiday parties is upon us and there is nothing you can do to stop it!

Or is there?

So, first off, no... you cannot go in...

Fats have been made the enemy in our culture. We are still feeling the residual effects of an entire generation bought into a low fat diet. I want to clear some things up about fat and explain why we needn’t be fearful of it!

There are Three Types of Fat:

  1. Saturated-contains most amount of water possible, and is usually hard at room temperature (butter, lard, coconut oil).

  2. Monounsaturated-lack two hydrogen atoms, therefore less stable, and more likely to go rancid under high temperatures (olive oil, nuts, avocado).

  3. Polyunsaturated-two or more pairs of hydrogen atoms, remain liquid even wh...

When you think of your fitness program, you probably think of things like conditioning, bodyweight exercises, weightlifting, and expressing your fitness through sports like skiing, climbing, and biking. These are all important pieces to the puzzle, but if you think this is all you need to live a fitter, healthier life, then you’re on your way to a lot of disappointment and frustration. The CrossFit Pyramid does consist of Sport, Weightlifting, Gymnastics, and Metabolic Conditioning, which are all important, but the most essential piece to our fitness journey is Nutrition, which sits at the bottom of...

When comparing our generation to the Paleolithic era, there are a lot of obvious differences. One thing we as CrossFitters have be trying to emulate, is the way they ate.The Paleo Diet consists of lean meats, lots of vegetables and fruits, nuts and seeds, some starch, and no sugar. As CrossFitters, we are always looking to find the best ways to train and live, and of course how we fuel our body is a huge part of that. We’ve found that the Paleo Diet is the cleanest, most natural way to eat, and it makes perfect sense that these foods are the foods that our bodies were designed to live off of.

As we...

We talked about where your meat comes from. That is closely related to what your meat eats. And what your meat eats you eat. So here is a breakdown of terms you'll see at the supermarket.

Vegetarian Fed-This is something you'll see on egg and chicken products. Chickens are not vegetarian. They like bugs. Normally. These days, there are fed some mixture of something. If a chicken is vegetarian fed it basically means it's not fed animal protein. What is meant by animal protein? Leftovers. These leftovers could be just about anything under the sun: 

 

  • Ground up downer cattle (cattle too sick to sta...

The most important piece of your diet puzzle is to pick the right carbohydrates. In order to know what carbs to pick, we’re going to use the glycemic index. The glycemic index measures how fast glucose (sugar) raises a person’s blood sugar. Straight glucose is rated 100 on the index and foods with carbohydrates in them are ranked based on how fast sugar is released into your blood. The lower the glycemic index number, the better the food is for you. Follow this link to find the glycemic index number for hundreds of common foodshttp://www.glycemicindex.ca/glycemicindexfoods.pdf.

If you can’t find a pa...
