Nutrition is the foundation of any fitness program or sport. CrossFit’s nutrition philosophy is: Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.” (CrossFit Journal, September 2002, “The Garage Gym”, “World Class Fitness in 100 Words”)
Nutrition is at the base of the pyramid that CrossFit founder Greg Glassman created, with metcons, gymnastics, weightlifting and sport all being supported by it.
