Thursday, April 6
Don't forget to sign up for Fueling Activity, the CrossFit 616 nutrition plan. There are just a few spots left and sign ups end this Friday, April 7! Now, here's a great graphic from RP Strength on what matters when dieting for body composition (aka losing fat/gaining and maintaining muscle). Note: what we do in Fueling Activity is different than RP in many ways!
The graphic below shows that it all starts with the amount of food (calories) you're eating, then the balance of macronutrients that make up that food. Then you dial in when you eat those specific macros, then think about what makes up those foods and maybe add in supplements at the end to round some things out.
BUT, and this is a big but, there is one thing that surrounds all of this and is more important than each individual piece - it's called CONSISTENCY!
As the graphic says, none of this other stuff matters if you are not consistent with your nutrition.
What's so great about our nutrition plan, Fueling Activity, is that you get the personal attention to help you be consistent over the long haul. I'm not saying anything negative about other plans, it's just that consistency matters and a personal support system can make a huge difference there. Fueling Activity is designed to be easy to follow and will teach you principles of nutrition that will help you be successful for the rest of your life when it comes to eating.
Yes, dieting for body composition is going to look a little different than dieting for performance, but whatever your goals are, we are here to help!
If you sign up for Fueling Activity's upgraded plan you get a 30-minute one-on-one session with a coach to discuss your specific goals to set a starting point that is right for you. Not to mention the constant discussion you have during the four-week plan. You'll also get to attend an end-of-plan meeting to ask questions about nutrition and where to go when the four weeks is up.
We want you to reach your goals! We want to help you stay consistent and make this as easy as possible. But you have to commit. The info and support is there for you, so let us help you get to where you want to be!
