Welcome to CrossFit Santa Clara Nutrition Blog!

Many members of CrossFit Santa Clara are interested in nutrition, especially in Paleo and Zone eating. There are LOTS of resources that are excellent, but it is time-consuming to search through site after site, article after article. So, I’ve put together some information to help you find information, recipes, tips and other resources.

If there’s something you’re looking for, let me know and I’ll try to find what you need. If you have something to share, send it to me and I’ll add it to our resources. Let’s all contribute to improving our diet and nutrition, just as we encourage each other in our workouts!

    The site looks great Cynthia!

    Big thanks goes out to Jason and Cynthia for putting this site together!
    I am definitely interested in improving my performance in CrossFit by dialing in strategic nutrition!
    I am all for the Paleo Challenge!


  2. Nice work Cynthia!
    Can you post some links to help people get started with Paleo or Zone?


  3. Welcome guys!

    Abhishek, there are a bunch of links on the right side of the page.. A great place to start exploring Paleo is the FAQ on Loren Cordain’s site, which describes what Paleo is. The CrossFit Journal issue #21 is a great place to start on Zone information.

    In essence, Zone is about food Quantity and the balance of proteins, carbs and fat (and where everything is weighed and measured), while Paleo is about food Quality – no grains, legumes, sugars or dairy, but plenty of real (non-processed) food that isn’t measured or weighed. Many people get great results from “Zoleo” – which is Paleo foods in Zone proportions.. We’ll do some posts on these things in the future!


  4. Thanks Cynthia, this is great.

    Hi Cynthia!
    Thanks for the site and putting up all the great info! Im currently doing zone type diet and really benefit from it. I think the smaller portions and higher frequency works for me, but you can guess foods is convienient at times but not always the healthiest. I look foward to learning and taking the next step! 🙂


  6. Hey Cynthia! Great work putting this up, and thanks for linking to us! Let us know how we can help and support you.
