The Foundation of a Good CrossFit Diet

Over the past few years, we have been constantly asked about the best supplements and diet plans for CrossFit athletes. When asked this question, many people expect extreme answers, including the latest muscle powders that burn fat or fat.

If you follow us at all, you know that's not what we have. We suggest the safest and best way to make your body stronger and your health better.

Whether you build a house or build a body, the rules are the same. Strength and endurance start with the right foundation.

The Os course has a place for protein powder and amino acids in your CrossFit regimen. But without the basic building blocks, you're fooling yourself and maybe wasting your money.

At CrossFit Diet Tips, we start each athlete, beginner or veteran, on two supplements. Both of these supplements are not as obvious or expensive as most products out there. That being said, you definitely get what you pay for and there are differences in quality and potential.

The two supplements we always start with are Fish Oil and Multivitamins. These supplements provide a strong foundation that will support the additional concentration of other ingredients, while helping in the recovery and well-being of your body.

Remember though, supplements are just that, supplements. Their job is to help a good diet or improve a good exercise program. You can't fix a bad diet with supplements.

Why do we recommend Multivitamins? Multivitamins contain micronutrients that are deficient in almost every athlete. No matter how good the diet is, it is impossible to get enough of the recommended micronutrients. Most people cannot eat the total amount of food needed to supply this nutrient.

Good capsized multivitamins are the basis of CrossFit supplemental programs.

Multivitamin Capsules

As mentioned earlier, you get what you pay for. Multivitamins should be high quality and collectible, not heated and hard. Your body does not damage and absorb this type. Your multivitamin should also be gender-specific. The micronutrients requirements of women are different from those of men.

Fish oil is the second addition to our base. Fish oil is often referred to as Omega-3 Fatty Acids. This is important because not only do most people lack, they are an important provider of natural anti-inflammatory reactions in your body. As a CrossFit athlete or non-athlete, you can see how important this process is. You should eat fresh fatty fish diet 3-5 times a week, every week to get the recommended dose of Omega-3.

High quality fish oil is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids and is the basis for the CrossFit supplement program.


Like multivitamins, all Omega-3 supplements are definitely not created equal. You can find cheap fish oil supplements in big box stores, but the quality and potential suffer dramatically. "Fresh" fish oil is mandatory and the EPA and DHA ratio is very important. The higher your Omega-3 potential, the better the anti-inflammatory response.

In closing, a good Multivitamin and Fish Oil supplement is the perfect base for your diet and exercise. They fill the gap by providing the required micronutrients and Omega-3s but are difficult to find despite the best diets.

For Your Health,
