Good read from Box Rox Magazine:
It can be close to impossible to eat clean 100% of the time and still make sure you get the calorie intake that you need in order to maintain a high intensity sporting lifestyle. So what’s the solution?
Let me start by saying that I’m not advocating you to avoid eating clean. There is however a growing issue with the clean eating culture, and a confusion of who it’s targeted at and how to tackle your nutrition.
As an athlete who’s aspiring to do any of the following:
You need to think about what you put into your mouth and equally importantly, how much of it.
I’m a large advocate of eating clean and do so myself, however there is a limit to how clean you can eat when you are trying to gain muscle and strength. Furthermore, there is a balance you need to strike between eating clean and eating what you like in order to ensure that you can stick with this diet for the rest of your life without having to make too many sacrifices.
I’m not talking about doing a two week cleanse, or going on a 2 month diet to lose some weight. I want you to be able to live the life you enjoy, whilst being as healthy as you can be.
I don’t want to be jumping on the bandwagon, however a nutribullet or a similar product is very useful for a sustainable healthy ‘clean’ diet. I also tried juicing for a year, however from my experience a nutribullet is much easier and quicker to use and more versatile in what you can put in it.
When you’re doing high intensity training such as crossfit and are chasing big numbers in the big lifts you will need to replenish your body’s nutrients and ensure you have a surplus to help you recover and fuel your next workout. Depending on how often you train, this will be very difficult to achieve by eating ‘clean’ 90-100% of the time.
