Pat Sherwood is one of CrossFit HQ’s top trainers and spends a lot of time on the road at CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2 certs. He’s also a great athlete who competed in the 2009 CrossFit Games. Proper nutrition is essential for optimizing performance. But how can that happen with so much time on the road?
This video is the seventh in a series in which we get up close and personal with Pat and his eating.
In this playful and less rigorous edition, Pat unexpectedly drops in to see his mother in Hanson, Mass. While she’s out, he takes the liberty of inspecting the Sherwood kitchen for Zone-friendly food. After growing up overweight, Pat is curious to see if the family fridge holds the same goodies that helped put a little tension on his belt back in the day.
The fridge itself is packed with carbs and a little of protein, while the freezer holds all kinds of sweet treats. A bowl of candy sits in the guest bathroom for “seated snacking,” but the real mother lode of anti-Zone goodies is found in the basement.
“I’m going to have to kill a small animal in the back yard to get some protein around here,” Sherwood moans.
