Week of July 1 - July 7


Zoë Harcombe, Ph.D., is an independent author, researcher, and speaker in the fields of diet, health, and nutrition. Harcombe defines “The Mess” as “the escalating disease (and) the escalating medical costs, which many people are profiting from but none are combatting effectively.” During a presentation delivered on July 31 at the 2019 CrossFit Health Conference, Harcombe outlined many factors that contribute to this growing problem — specifically, the role of dietitians and the food and beverage industry in influencing how and what we eat, accreditation that regulates who can offer dietary advice, and the disparity between what we are told to eat and what the evidence suggests we should eat.

 

From the CrossFit Journal Archives in 2003...


The assertions put forth by CrossFit as to what type of diet and exercise supports optimal human health have been correct for a very long time. More than two decades later, we're only more steadfast in the prescription of 'Constantly Varied, Functional Movements, Executed at your relatively High Intensity' coupled with a diet of 'meats and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar' as the most effective for lifelong fitness that sticks (which is just another way of stating "health").
