During the nutrition lecture at the recent Level 1 certifications I’ve attended, they have discussed the 23/1 Rule. I find it very fascinating and truthful. I’d like to share it with you today.
As you know, you’ll never be at CrossFit Moncton for longer than an hour. The warmup, strength rotation and workout generally lasts 60 minutes. What you do in that hour is obviously good for you.
Now, you have 23 other hours to completely screw up everything you did at the gym. You know what would screw it up. Eat poutine. Have a cigarette. Get only 5 hours of sleep. Drink pop.
So why would you waste that hour? You worked your ass off at the gym. You probably laid on the floor in a puddle of your own sweat. For what? To ruin it by eating like crap for the rest of the day?
What you choose to do for the remaining 23 hours is up to you. There’s nothing I can do as a coach to help you in that area. The ball is in your court.

I’ll leave you with this video about a ridiculous diet….
