While we try to be family friendly, we couldn't resist this handstand from Emmalee at the Holly Madison Peepshow in Las Vegas.
 
Food as a drug

This is common sense, so there's no reason to beat around the bush: food is a drug.  Food can lower or raise your blood pressure, eliminate or add excess body fat, raise or lower cholesterol (good and bad), and increase or decrease triglyceride counts.  It can be the cause of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, hypertension, coronary artery disease, stroke, and many other potentially lethal conditions.

 
So with this notion of food acting as a drug in mind, wouldn't it be appropriate to take the correct dosage?  Weighing and measuring food gets a bad rap.  Instead of cooking your food and serving it onto a plate, we ask that you add one simple step: cook your food, move it to the scale, and then serve it on a plate.  Whoa… that's it?  Yup – that's it! 
We are hosting a nutrition workshop this Saturday December 19th at 12:30pm.  Nutrition is a huge part of becoming fit and healthy, without paying attention to what's going in, you will not reap the full benefits of the CrossFit program, period.  So come join us while we talk about; the Paleolithic diet, the Zone Diet, insulin resistance, auto immune disease, syndrome X, meal planning, how to eat out, optimizing your performance and health, and much much more.
 
The nutrition workshop is free to CrossFit Verve members.  Come one come all, because the more the merrier.  If it's been a while since you've done a nutrition, feel free to come again, we've added and improved.
