Get your nutrition on!

CrossFit NYC is proud to host Paul Jaminet, Ph.D., co-author of Perfect Health Diet: Four Steps to Renewed Health, Youthful Vitality, and Long Life, for a two and a half hour lecture/workshop on Saturday November 19th at noon in our 4th-floor annex (regular class schedule will not be affected). (CFNYC member and paleo blogger John Durant is co-sponsoring Paul’s visit.)

Jaminet will focus on common bottlenecks to health and performance in implementing paleo-style eating and where making some subtle (hello white rice!) and not so subtle (hello dairy?) modification to standard paleo can confer some serious benefits, as well as how to assess what is right for you and your family. Q&A to follow.
