Part 2 of the lecture by CrossFit Founder and CEO Greg Glassman.

Here  is the description from the CrossFit YouTube page:

Part 2 of Coach Glassman’s discussion of nutrition addresses the refined dietary needs of athletes and what’s required to optimize your performance. If you want elite physical output, you must be precise about your intake. “Close enough” won’t cut it–or as Coach Glassman more colorfully puts it, “If you want top-fuel- type performance, you need top fuel; you can’t just piss into the gas tank.”

Most of us are familiar with CrossFit’s nutrition prescription: Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. But to achieve top performance, you have to be specific about the balances of those things and accurate in your macronutrient consumption. You can get far on the workouts alone, but you will not–cannot–reach your true potential without getting particular about your fuel. There’s a 1:1 correspondence between elite CrossFit performance and accuracy and precision in your consumption.
