The food we eat has a direct and immediate effect on how we perform, whether it be our workout or any other task we face on a daily basis.
“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
At CFWD we work with Optimize Me Nutrition to help deliver the best and simplest group nutrition challenge available.
THE 800 GRAM CHALLENGE
WHAT IS IT?
This challenge was designed by OptimizeMe Nutrition. Eat 800 grams (g) of fruits and/or vegetables, by weight, per day.
No foods are eliminated, but only fruits and veggies count toward the 800g. Eat the fruits and veggies or your choice. Hit the macros you want.
Raw, cooked, canned, frozen; doesn’t matter! If you can weigh it as a standalone and unprocessed fruit or vegetable, you can count it. Yep, that’s it! Here’s a one-sheet with all the rules and scoring details.
So why 800g? It’s associated with increased health and is a simplified way to hit those recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. Read more here.
Our Autumn Challenge begins on Monday the 9th of September and ends on Sunday the 6th of October.
