Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge Lecture and Q&A: “What Do I Eat?”
Are eggs bad for me? I know avocado is a healthy food, so can I have as much as I want? What’s a whole grain? I heard that avoiding carbs is a fast way to lose weight. Should I skip them? What about gluten, lactose, caffeine, nails, etc.?
Whether you’re following Level 1 or Level 2 on the Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge, we want you to focus on what foods to eat rather than what are “bad” or foods you should try and will yourself to not eat. In the first lecture of the series (this Sunday, January 7th at 12pm in the Annex), we’ll discuss what healthy foods you should be including in your diet, as well as provide some guidelines on how much of them should be on your plate (even if you’re not counting your macros). An open Q&A will follow.

Check out Coach Fox‘s “Older, Fitter: You’re Not as Old as You’re Gonna Be,” the first in a series of posts that will reveal some of his knowledge about training older athletes. Coach KHarpz penned the latest installment in her continuing series detailing her quest to qualify for regionals,“Massing SZN: I Command You to Grow!” They’re both great weekend reads!
