Organic beer? Organic Oreos? Is organic food just the newest celebrity food fad or should we be supporting this $14-billion-a-year industry? The food giants are slapping the word "organic" on everything now, and consumers frequently relate "organic" with "healthy". Is organic really better for your health? Let's get one thing straight first:
No More Excuses!
Have you been reading about CrossFit for awhile and are really interested, but you haven’t taken the step to sip the Kool-Aid? If you’ve been using every excuse in the book not to try it, it’s time to stop. Quit with the excuses and give it a try!
I realize this may not apply to everyone—There are some of you out there that others like to ‘hate on’ if you don’t need to lose weight J but for those that are wanting to lose some weight, this is something to think about.
Are YOU Ready for the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games?
The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth. The Games season is a grueling multi-stage journey that culminates in July 2012.
Fitness means being ready for the unknown and unknowable, so the workouts change every year and are not announced until just before the events start.
Our friends over at CrossFit Tampa Bay shared this video with us about how to tape your hands for pull-ups. CrossFit Los Angeles does a great job of giving you some pointers!
Thanks so much to Alex for finding this article & posting it on facebook & to the website LivxFit that posted the article originally. Remember.....All of YOU are AWESOME!!!
7 Foods You Should Never Eat~Prevention Magazine~December 2011
Food scientists are shedding light on items loaded with toxins and chemicals--and simple swaps for a cleaner diet and supersized health.
Clean eating means choosing fruits, vegetables, and meats that are raised, grown, and sold with minimal processing. Often they're organic, and rarely (if ever) should they contain additives. But in some cases, the methods of today's food producers are neither clean nor sustainable. The result is damage to our health, the environment, or both. So we decided to take a fresh look at food through the eyes of the people who spend their lives uncovering what's safe--or not--to eat. We asked them a simple question: "What foods do you avoid?" Their answers don't necessarily make up a "banned foods" list. But reaching for the suggested alternatives might bring you better health--and peace of mind.
