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 TODAY February 3rd at 8:30pm.  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 and non-members alike.  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. 


  1. All the peeps doing the Warrior Dash (in August), what wave are you signed up for? I’d like to be in a wave with the most friends as possible. More fun! Do tell…

    Mas & I are signed up for the 2pm wave, along with my brothers and sister, and some peeps from the firehouse. I think we are planning on camping up there that night too, and making a weekend of it! Can’t wait to get all filthy and drink beer together, it’s gonna be so fun! The more, the merrier!
