Coach P’s Nutrition Tip #2 – Educate Yourself

Our box, CrossFit Thermal, is doing a month-long nutrition challenge from July 7-August 7. Members are choosing various levels of engagement, ranging from strict Zone to strict Paleo, to “no grains, no extra sugar.” I will be posting a short nutrition tip to help people stay on point and make clean nutrition a life-long habit instead of just a short term “diet.”

Nutrition Tip #2: At the end of the day, no one can force you to do anything. Intrinsic motivation is the best kind of motivation and educating yourself can help boost that inner desire to be healthy. Blogs, books, email newsletters, podcasts, lectures – these are all things that you can take in to educate yourself. Here are some of my favorites:
