Clean Challenge - This is a Whole 30 based challenge were we learn and practice the basics of whole food nutrition, what to eat, and what not to eat.

Performance Challenge - This is a Performance based challenge were we will learn how the quality and quantity of your food affects your performance through the use of the Zone Diet. We will also track other health markers like sleep, hydration, supplements, training, and mobility.

We are fighting an unwinnable battle for our health... 

The idea that we can beat Big Sugar, processed food companies, and our government is so overwhelming that most of us have conceded the fight already. No matter where you go, sugar and crappy food is assaulting your freedom to live a healthy life, free from chronic disease. It truly feels like the people we're suppose to trust - our government, doctors, pharmacists, and health care professionals are setting us up to fail... I guess there's no money in a healthy society.

We're not going to win the battle - sugar and crappy processed foods...

With our Fall Nutrition Challenge coming up in a week, we'd like to continue down the nutrition rabbit hole. In this week's Vlog we're talking about Energy Balance and why we shouldn't be buying the bad science that Big Sugar is trying to sell us! 

Are all calories equal? Is weight loss as simple as calories in versus calories out? Can you outwork a bad diet? The answer to all of these questions is a big fat NO!!!

This week's NoCoast CrossFit Vlog is in response to a nutrition question we received last week...

"Can you explain the difference between whole foods and processed foods?"

We know processed foods can be tricky and most of us want to include some healthier processed foods to add verity to our diet - check out this week's Vlog to find out how to separate the good from the bad.

Now that our kiddos are back to school, let's talk about how we can use nutrition to help them thrive!

The 2018 Performance Challenge has concluded and your winners are Beth Romero and Bert Callicoatt! These two, along with everyone else absolutely crushed it and have some amazing results to show for it!

The Performance Challenge is for people who already understand what good quality food means - the difference between whole foods, and cheap and easy processed foods. Our goal is to find ways to maximise performance, but ultimately our results are leading to longer, healthier, and active lives. Not only are our challenge participants focusing on quality foods, but we are now asking them to pay attentio...

A common concern brought up when doing the Zone diet for the first time is the lack of calories or feeling hungry all the time. We joke that all you have to do is add more broccoli, but that doesn’t really answer the questions as to why the Zone diet is so effective at helping people lose body fat.

Anyone can lose weight if they put themselves in a caloric deficit. The problem with this is your performance, health, and quality of life suffers; once this happens or you’ve hit your target weight loss goal, you add the calories back, or even worse, you go back to your old way of eating and all of the we...

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...
