CrossFit Tysons Nutrition powered by WAG
CFTC provides nutrition guidance and accountability for those who are interested as a Working Against Gravity (WAG) Affiliate.
We will be providing more details on this offering starting Fall of 2019.
In general, CFTC focuses on the following starting point for nutrition but we know that everyone is different:
Body measurement - CFTC has on-site body composition analysis provided by the Naked Labs Scanner. This scanner provides:
Body Fat Percentage
Log food - in myfitnesspal (iphone | android) - the only way to know what to adjust is to record what you’re eating. After some time, the food recording can relax, but our nutrition mentors must have an accurate account of your macro and micronutrients (like fiber) in order to make informed adjustments. Just like you wouldn’t go to the mechanic without your odometer reading and crash history, you can’t approach nutrition without some data to make improvements. We will be working on an easy way to take what’s entered in myfitnesspal and make it available to your nutrition mentor.
Track macros - to eat in the proper ratios at every meal or snack. Keep your target macro breakdown within 10% for carb/protein/fat macros based on starting calculator (choose % body fat, moderate activity level, and high protein options). Nutrition mentors will walk through exactly what the breakdwons mean for you.
Drink at least one third of your body weight in ounces of water daily
Avoid added sweeteners, alcohol or bad oils for the best results
Enjoy the food you crave 1-2 times per week. If you’re craving something, give your body a treat, but understand that sleep, hydration, and macros come before satisfying any craving
Weekly recording of progress photos and measurements - we will make this easy to coordinate for those who interested
Get an accountability mentor - whether it’s a formal nutrition mentor or a friend, we work best in teams and when we’re striving for an attainable goal. CFTC will coordinate accountability tracking in the weeks to come.
Schedule a Body Composition Scan
If you would like to come in for a one-time body composition scan, you are welcome to use our 3D composition scanner to help with your fitness journey. As a CFTC member, you also have access to the scanner for a reduced rate. Non-member scan: $35.
Does all of this tracking sound too hard and you just want ready-made meals accessible to you? We partner with Territory Foods for meal delivery to the CFTC with the ability to pick up food once or twice per week. The food is fresh and meets all of the guidelines outlined above.
