Cut the Crap

Many people start CrossFit to jump start a healthier lifestyle, lose weight and get stronger. We ask people to rate their food quality when they fill out the initial waiver/health history questionnaire. The problem is many people consider what they are currently eating to be healthy and rate themselves fairly high. Upon closer inspection, foods like (low-fat) yogurt, 100% fruit juice and oatmeal are often part of a daily meal routine and all of these foods are loaded with sugar! Would you consider a Snickers bar to be part of a healthy meal? Probably not, and we will all probably agree that if your goal is to lean out, and become fitter, eating a Snickers is not going to help you accomplish that goal. However, many of the foods promoted as being healthy actually have as much, if not more, sugar in them compared to a regular-sized Snickers bar (27 grams of sugar). Here’s a list of other high sugar “health” foods.

Here are just a few foods:

pom juice

8 oz. bottle contains 31 grams of sugar!

 

chobani

28 grams of sugar in this single serving cup

McD Oatmeal

This may seem like a healthier fast food option, but at 32g of sugar, this bowl contains just as much as the McDonald’s cinnamon melts and twice as much sugar as a Sausage McGriddle.

 

Supplemental

4 rounds of
:45 sec plank
15 GHD Sit Up
20 Hip Extension
