During my prep for competition me and my other half kept our diet insanely clean. I like to increase my calories because of the amount of training that is involved but I like to get them calories from red meat, oily fish, potatoes, rice and, after an hour of met-cons (posh work for intense circuit training), a battle oats or a primal kitchen bar (they are AMAZING).
I was introduced to macronutrients through a personal trainer in London, Gordon Greenhorn (go check out his Facebook, it's quite amusing), as I had developed a bad relationship with food. I began cutting my calories between 800-1100 and could maintain that for a week or so and then would have a massive binge.
It sounds so corny. It sounds like I am just repeating the same old "motivating" lines that Pinterest gargles out. But there is something in it. Your fitness journey should be about YOU. No-one else.
Coming into the new year and having some time on my hands with the three days off work and i thought i would google crossfit with "womens fitness" and "womens health" to see what the commercial magazines were publishing about Crossfit.
