Hi. I've read a few post and gleaned what I could but it's hard work. Can anyone recommend a book that covers all the said nutritional theroy? Is it in the CFJ? Or do I slog it out with good ole' dedication on the forum??

Theres so much to take in.

Additionally. The CFJ said to cut out sugar. Is that all sugar or just stop having extra sugar in your food n' such??

alex , i thoroughly recommend The Zone . this book is easy to read. it may be a little hard to follow at 1st but stick with it, it'll come. learn as much about your body as possible.

good luck , scott holmes, crossfit new jersey

Applying the 100 word description of CrossFit is about 90% of what you really need to know.

Sugar is closely linked to the aging mechanism. Minimize it unless it comes in fruits.

Cheers guys I'll read up on it and come back in a few weeks with a thousand more questions. ha ha!

personally, i learned a heck of a lot by reading posts on the message board, enter the zone, the paleo diet, and lights out, sleep, sugar and survival. my diet kinda consists of a mish-mosh of the books mentioned above.
