Register at Nutrition House.


Today is the first day of changing you dietary ways. I hope you will all be successful and will maintain this for the rest of your lives.

A few questions have been asked about the food log and I'll answer them below:

  1. Download the food log and open it with Microsoft Word
    • If you have the "Notebook Layout View", it is best to use that . It's kinda cool too. If not, just open it in "Print Layout".
  2. I would like you to fill to fill out the food log daily and email it to me once a week (Friday night or Saturday)
  3. If possible, please indicate portion size. Last challenge people were not eating enough and didn't see any progress with training and were lethargic all of the time.
  4. I will review your food log and, if needed, make subtle changes to it.
I think that's it. If any questions feel free to email me to approach me at the gym and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.

Enjoy this new experience!!!

One More Day

Hey everyone! Tomorrow you start a new chapter in your life. I hope that each and every one of you will make it through the 6 weeks and carry on this way of eating for years (the rest of your life) to come. The first week will probably be the hardest. Just stay strong!

There is an excellent offer on the table from one of our athletes. Ellie is willing to help us get through the really tough mental aspect of changing your diet. She is very knowledgeable about this and I would not pass up an opportunity to receive this information. Thanks Ellie!

Here is what she is willing to do:

"For anyone that has difficulty with sugar or other food cravings and it's stopping you from trying the challenge, I'd like to offer a free one hour teleseminar for CrossFitters on overcoming self-sabotage and emotional eating. If anyone is interested let me know and if there at least a few people interested, I'll run it within the first week of the challenge to give you some good tools for dealing with emotional eating or intense cravings that get in your way."

Fast Food

How many of you eat fast food? How many of you that have families stop by McDonalds, Wendy's, etc with the kids because you had a really busy day and don't have time or energy to cook? I'm sure the question list can go on and on but I'll spare you the boredom.

Fast forward to 1:16 of the video.

Now why would you feed yourself or your kids this?
