Nutrition is on everyones mind.  If you spend anytime reading health and fitness literature you’ve noticed that the “Paleo” diet is becoming more and more main stream.  It has many names, with slight variations, caveman diet, primal, etc… We like to call it just plan real food.  If you could kill it or grow it without the use of machinery, it’s good to go!

It also starts off CrossFit’s 100 words of fitness: 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. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
