Welcome to Part 3 of Nutrition Simplified, the last article from our series, that simplifies the standards and rules of healthy living. In Part 1, we discussed the importance of nutrition and food quality and quantity, and in Part 2, we discussed post-workout nutrition. If you missed either of the two, both are available on the CrossFit Stamina blogroll.
As mentioned in the previous articles, this series was inspired by one of my most latest nutrition finds: “Sustained Nutrition” by the very own Matt Chan, CrossFit Games veteran and seasoned coach, provides a simplified approach to nutrition. I thought it was fantastic how he was able to simplify nutrition for people who typically get overwhelmed by weighing, measuring or counting macros, and turn those negatives into positive outcomes.
Let’s dive into Part 3.
