What’s On Your Plate: The Coach Edition


We strongly believe that tracking your food and drink consumption can be key to getting on track and learning how to eat for the results you want. Oftentimes it can be eye opening to realize exactly what you are consuming, and at what times. Our team asks all of our athletes to track their food, and now we’re turning the tables and asking our coaches to share their food log!

We asked the CrossFit Central Burnet coaches to share 24 hours of their food and beverage consumption this week. Everyone has different goals and is eating accordingly, whether that is gaining lean muscle, maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle, or resetting after Thanksgiving. Check out what’s on their plate!
