Eat-Clean January Resource-o-tha-day!

It's the day after Christmas. You're nursing a gluten/sugar/booze hangover and looking forward to our January detox. Here are some basics on what the hell we're doing next month. You can read the Whole9's entire philosophy here but this is it in a nutshell:
Whole9′s Nutrition in 60 Seconds "We eat real food – meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, healthy oils, nuts and seeds. We choose foods that were raised, fed and grown naturally, and foods that are nutrient-dense, with lots of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. This is not a “diet” – we eat as much as we need to maintain strength, energy, activity levels and a healthy body weight. We aim for well-balanced nutrition, so we eat animals and a significant amount of plants. Eating like this has helped us to look, feel, live and perform our best, and reduces our risk for a variety of lifestyle-related diseases and conditions.

Eat-Clean January resource-o-tha-day!

I keep referring you to the Whole9 website, but I will also walk you through some of their most helpful resources. LIS, WHAT DO I EAT?: Use the Whole9's shopping list to STOCK UP BEFORE JANUARY 1 on all the fixin's for your kitchen. If you don't cook, you can also consider a paleo meal delivery service, like Urban Pl8's or Edesia Meals. CFM recommends either of these services for delicious paleo meals!
Merry Christmas from one of CFM's favorite Jews! Arielle hopes you have as great a time today as she was having in this pic at CrossFitmas 🙂

Eat-Clean January resource-o-tha-day!

Many of you have been asking what this January detox entails. It is whatever you make of it... the most hard-core of us will be doing the Whole 30. Click here for the full outline...
In summary (straight from the Whole9Life website):
What is the Whole30®?
"Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the foods you eat – even the “healthy” stuff. So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you?
Strip them from your diet completely. Cut out all the psychologically unhealthy, hormone-unbalancing, gut-disrupting, inflammatory food groups for a full 30 days. Let your body heal and recover from whatever effects those foods may be causing. Push the “reset” button with your metabolism, systemic inflammation, and the downstream effects of the food choices you’ve been making. Learn once and for all how the foods you’ve been eating are actually affecting your day to day life, and your long term health. The most important reason to keep reading?
This will change your life.
We cannot possibly put enough emphasis on this simple fact – the next 30 days will change your life. It will change the way you think about food, it will change your tastes, it will change your habits and your cravings. It could, quite possibly, change the emotional relationship you have with food, and with your body. It has the potential to change the way you eat for the rest of your life. We know this because we did it, and tens of thousands of people have done it since, and it changed our lives (and their lives) in a very permanent fashion."
