You've Got Questions...

I want to know what's on your mind - related to nutrition and fitness that is.  

Do you have questions about being Paleo, Crossfitting, Rest and Recovery, Triathlons, Food...  Please submit your questions via the Comments section on this blog post or you can email it directly to me through my Contact tab.  I'd love to hear what's on your mind and pull your questions together for a future blog post.


  1. Laura - Hey, I've got a question for ya! I have been doing a 21 day challenge of strict paleo and while it's been going really well, I have found that I am craving gum. I can't seem to shake this and have been giving in to it. I am chewing like 6 to 8 pieces of gum a day. I am assuming it's because I am craving sugar?


  2. What separates the elite crossfitter from the good one? Is it a super strict diet? Working out everyday? Twice a day? What separates a Froning and Spealler from the average crossfitter?

  3. Funny Melinda, I actually have the same cravings for gum- but not that much. Maybe 2-3 times a day, I feel like I need it.

  4. When not on a strict paleo diet (meaning you will allow for non-paleo food and drink every once in a while) and you are out at the bar, what is the best alcohol to drink that is not wine?

  5. How about portion sizes of the different macronutrients. Obviously a 200lb guy needs different portions compared to me. As do someone in maintenance, weight loss/gain.

    What are some less guilty cheats/treats. When/how sould or can they be incorporated.

    Dealing with the frustrations of being or feeling like you are at a plateau with strength, body fat, etc. Some things to try or other ways to look at it and maybe you arent stuck or going backwards.

    A guildline for somoene training for another sport (tri, hockey, running) and crossfitting. I.e How to balance the two to avoid losing strength and not overtraining or getting injured.
