What are the key principles in nutrition and performance?
For starters, don’t worry. If you find this topic at all confusing you’d be in fine company. Many athletes struggle with this at some point on their path. There’s a lot to know, a lot to try. And tons of bullshit to cut through.
This is all part of the journey, friend.
What about specific diets? Which is best, for CrossFit® or maybe Weightlifting? Are Paleo and Primal still a thing, or is it better to be flexible and just count macro-nutrients?
This week on Barbell Shrugged, we’re helping you out by cutting through the confusion and buzz. We share or personal experience and what has worked best for us, both in our own training and with our athletes.
Above all, it’s super helpful to recognize that it doesn’t matter very much at all which approach you choose. You just have to choose one, anything reasonable, systematic and sustainable.
That last part is actually the most important lesson to learn. Ultimately, the best approach to your nutrition is the one that makes sense. The one you can see yourself sticking to, day in and day out. And yes, there should be some flexibility.
No diet should ever be set in stone. It best depends on what you want, and where you’re at in the journey. If that’s something you’re not sure of, I think this show will really help you out.
