CrossFit trainer E.C. Synkowski offers practical nutrition information to help with day-to-day choices. At CrossFit Hingham, she talks to a group of CrossFitters about macronutrients, micronutrients, nutrient density and nutrient synergy.
“Food is our fuel for metabolism,” she explains. “Metabolism is all the chemical processes that go on necessary to maintain life, also to produce energy, to do CrossFit.”
When it comes to making choices about what to eat and what to avoid, she says it comes down to two questions: Where are you relative to where you want to be? How much are we talking about?
“Are you lean? Are you fit? Are you healthy? That’s going to tell us are you in excess already or are you at levels that are supporting exercise?” she says. “The quantity is always going to matter to some degree.”
