    Kelly Starrett’s response in a recent interview relating nutrion and performance:

    What part does nutrition play in tissue health
    and recovery?

    “If I’m walking around chronically inflamed and not seeing
    the correlation between my ability to recover from a
    difficult workout and the foods that I eat and the quality
    of the nutrition that I eat, then that is one of those very
    simple things that is easy to turn around quickly. And if I
    can’t correlate my chronic dehydration and my junky torn
    meniscus with the fact that I am chronically inflamed and I
    look like a doughboy, then that is a real problem.
    And what we are saying is that if you are serious about
    seeing where you can go and what is possible, then food
    is the most powerful drug on the planet. You should be
    eating like a human being: more of a Paleolithic model or a
    model that at least controls insulin. It’s still huge amounts
    of meat, huge amounts of vegetables, high-quality fats.
    You’ve just gotta eat like a human being, not like an
    infantile teenage human being. If you really need to add
    the calories, a shot glass full of olive oil will do it for you. You
    don’t need to eat the pizza; you need to eat a steak and a
    shot of olive oil. Eat three avocados and 12 eggs and tell
    me you’re still hungry.”

    Dammit Crossfit! You have done it, you have made me a different person. When I began coming to CFKT in January 2010 my life revolved around Cheez-its and I would have sold my first born for a good loaf of bread. Now, I am almost one of you. Almost a full-blown cult member. I still have a way to go as evident by my anti-Paleo month of August. However, I can see that is where I am heading because I just read this post and I was happy. Happy. As much as I will forever cherish the glorious tastes of my aforementioned eatable loves, I have seen first-hand the more glorious world of Paleo. Should I be concerned by this phoenix-like change taking place before me?

    Did someone say “a shot of Olive Oil”……

    LOL @ Sam. I remember my first impressions of you at the “Living Paleo” lecture soon after I joined the gym in summer 2010. Sam, you were drilling Grant about the ability to eat this or that, or how much constituted “cheating”, and how could people really be this way, etc. You were a tough audience. I felt like you were trying to find every loop hole in the Paleo guidelines so that you could eat what she wanted to, dammit. The faith of a convert to a religion is usually stronger than one born believing. Sounds like Sam’s a convert!

    I know, Dave, it is frightening. But the body wants what the body wants. And if that is a shot of Olive Oil, so be it.

    I’m sure it cost American tax payers a few million dollars for the Obama camp to take apart the old food pyramid and put it on a plate. Michelle Obama, epic fail!

    Taylor. I disagree. I need to eat the pizza and ice cream to maintain my weight. That’s my story and I’m stickin to it.

    Also, saw a dude wearing a sweet shirt today. It said: “There is a place for every one of God’s amazing creatures… right next to my potatoes and gravy.”

    I could so stick to Paleo if someone would prepare it for me. No time. Easier to grab something in a package.
