Hello Jabletes,
Sorry for the late email. I was in Sacramento ThursdaySaturday training with my martial arts mentor, Mr. Kovar, and then trained with all of the AMA karate staff in Kirkland at an instructor certification on Sunday. Last night, after the seminar, I took the boys to see Ziggy Marley It was their 1st concert & lots of fun, but hopefully not a predictor of future behavior: Liam drank too much (milk), threw up, kept partying and then he & Mateo passed out 🙂
Before I forget: Coach Tyler has made it safely to the East Coast! He’s also got his new Coach Tyler blog up and running. Check it out and “follow” for updates. *There’s a special message on the left side for Jabletes 🙂
Onto our weekly email! Let’s talk about nutrition (briefly):
CrossFit’s basic nutrition guidelines can be found here and here’s the most important part:

“In plain language, base your diet on garden vegetables, especially greens, lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch, and no sugar. That’s about as simple as we can get.”

I was at Third Place Books last week and found this book (pictured below) and then checked out the Thug Kitchen website.

Thug-Kitchen-CookbookLanguage is obviously NSFW, but their approach is refreshing. This pretty much sums it up:

“We don’t understand why eating real, healthy food has to be such a BIG F*ING DEAL.” 

Check it out if you need some inspiration between now and our next Whole 30 Challenge (tentatively planned for October — post back to school mandess and pre-holiday madness!). For more info visit the Whole 30 website.As always please reach out with any questions.
Keep Moving,
Chris
PS: We are hitting some PR’s this week — Front Squat and Push Press. Get into the gym and hit a new PR!!!

Sweden has become the first Western nation to develop national dietary guidelines that reject the popular low-fat diet dogma in favor of  low-carb high-fat nutrition advice.

The switch in dietary advice followed the publication of a two-year study by the independent Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment. The committee reviewed 16,000 studies published through May 31, 2013.

“When all recent scientific studies are lined up the result is indisputable: our deep-seated fear of fat is completely unfounded.” – Prof. Fredrik Nyström, from Linköping, Sweden –
