Crossfit Nutrition – Focus on Progress not Perfection

When it come to Crossfit nutrition, the simple and obvious fact is that everyone has to eat. This is why nutritional progress is such an important practice. When people start a ‘diet’ or a decide to ‘cut out eating all the crap’, it is often an all or nothing approach. For some people this works.

Going strict paleo or strict zone is absolutely fine….if it is achievable for you. However I often see the stress that is caused when someone is on a strict eating plan and they don’t have access to the specific foods they need. Will missing out on one block of protein once a week make a difference?

Perfection should never be the goal because the outcome will always be failure. How do you define perfection?

This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t set your goals high, it’s great to set the bar high, but the focus should be on the process. It is great to set a target of a single digit body fat percentage but trying to change every little detail of your nutrition immediately may not be the most effective way of achieving this.
