Should you give it up?

January 31, 2014

Sugar Versus Fat.  This is super interesting and I hope I can catch the BBC production.  They’re testing stuff we’ve been testing in CrossFit for years.  We have the Paleo Versus Zone Challenge starting next week, illness and it’s always good to check our nutrition.

BUT…even reading this article, medicine the “test subjects” experience negative and positive changes.  As CrossFitters, more about in our response to clean up our diets and kick our carb addiction, it sometimes feels like we’ve gone overboard, even demonizing carbohydrates.  It’s all about balance.  Just reading the article, both twins experienced performance ups and down during their test.  Exercise, brain activity and more suffered, at least anecdotally.
