“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.” (CrossFit Journal, September 2002, “The Garage Gym”, “World Class Fitness in 100 Words”)

What we put into our bodies greatly affects how we look, feel, and perform, but most athletes make nutrition secondary in their training.
