Everything I have spoken about so far has been about food and nutrition these are excellent ways to get started when it comes to changing your life around and loosing weight if that’s you goal, however another big part of my life is fitness I love a wide range of sporting activity’s that include: football, soft ball, swimming and cycling.
Over the past 3 years I have taken part in a workout or fitness activity called crossfit and to say it has taken my fitness ability to a new level is an understatement, crossfit training is any and every workout, sport and exercise combined into one tough training session the idea is instead of just running or only weightlifting, playing soccer or only ever doing swimming you do a mixture of anything and everything making you better, stronger and defiantly a lot fitter.
In this post I want to talk about crossfit and food in fact this entire site is going to be about food and crossfit so if a video exists that I think is relevant to either one I will most likely post it, if there is a cool article with helpful info I will make sure you can find it and I am also here to help so if you have any questions about crossfit and healthy food please message me.
Ok a very cool video example I found yesterday during a search of the you tube demonstrating how to get organised when it comes to your weekly shop. check out the video below and I will give me opinion shortly afterwords.
Ok so we see at the start this is a mission of some kind and I do very much like there approach, so if you want to give this a try you will need:
1. a shopping list for a weeks worth of food
That’s it you are good to go however you may want to think about what you are buying before rushing off spending money like a crazy fool.
In the video are two crossfit members, there mission is to do this process quickly but the main aim here is to ensure they are eating the correct foods for the workouts they are doing.
If you are working out at the same level then go for the list they put together however please be careful especially if you are not training as their diet is designed for them.
The meats are giving them a stack of protein everything else is what I call healthy food, you really can’t go wrong with fruits and vegetables it makes up 95% of my diet and I also do crossfit training.
The idea of chopping up vegetables is an excellent way to get ahead of your self and makes cooking easy for during the week as long as all the food is stored correctly i.e bags in the fridge I can’t see a problem with this method.
I like the fruit idea as a lot of people have other kinds of snacks around the house mainly full of salt and sugar, fruit is the perfect replacement as it contains natural sugar stopping you from resorting to the bad snacks.
I hope this little video has helped you plan a little better for the future and I would love to know your opinion or your own helpful tips for eating healthy.
