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

Strict paleo... but I can still drink alcohol, right? Ermmmm... NO. Again, this challenge is what you make of it. If you need a cheat meal once a week, super. Will you see results as great as the rest of us who stay clean? Nope. And if one more person tells me you're not sure you can quit drinking for 30 days, we're gonna have to start working some AA meetings into the class schedule. I'm not saying you can never drink again (have you SEEN this girl chug?), but if you're really trying to give your bod a break from all the holiday damage you put it through, kick the booze habit. Just for 30 days. I dare you.
Here's some info from the Whole9 on just why booze can derail your mission for a sick bod, great health and elite WOD results: The Alcohol Manifesto. "Just understand that the less you drink, and the less often you choose to imbibe, the healthier you’ll be."
Jeremy & Carlos share a passionate CrossFitmas embrace.

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.

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 🙂
