Lead Nutrition Coach Chloe Powell

When I first started CrossFit I wanted to be skinny. To me that was the whole purpose of working out. Soon after joining, I realized that ultimately my diet was what would lead me to success. My workout mentality had changed; I still wanted to be skinny, but I also wanted to be strong. My belly fat wasn’t the only thing keeping me going consistently. I had fallen in love with the sport.

Paleo was the official CrossFit diet at the time, so I hopped on board. Full throttle, to the point that my friends hated me. I looked down on others as they ate their pizza while enjoying my 5 tablespoons of almond butter (definitely not peanut butter, that would have been a sin). If it was paleo, there was no way it could be bad for me. I lost a few lbs pretty quick, but shortly after my weight loss stalled. Other than having a good & bad list of foods, I really had no idea how to see the results I wanted. But I did preach to everyone how horrible carb were for you.

I approached my coach at the time & asked him what I should do. He put me on a very strict diet. I was allowed 1 sweet potato a day in the morning, and that would be my only starchy carb I would have all day. Small portions of meat, a few almonds. I lost weight very quickly. Within a couple weeks I felt slim and was admiring my hard work in the mirror thinking I had found the answer. But shortly after my workouts became painful. I recall one specific day that I was a DNF. I felt like I was going to die. I had zero energy, no motivation. All of the lifts that I had began to excel at felt horrible. At the time, I didn’t link my diet to my performance. 

I moved to NY & started the “eat whatever I want” diet. I gained a solid 10 lbs, binge eating bags of Cadbury eggs. All I kept thinking was “if only I could get myself to do the cut again, I would be skinny”. My willpower was slim to none. I would start off my day with a positive attitude & eat my little bit of food, then evening would come and I’d have another bag of chocolate in front of me. “I’ll start tomorrow” was something I said a lot during that time. 

I talked to a friend who had started doing Eat to Perform. He told me all about it & why it was perfect for a CrossFitter. I did it for about 2 weeks and thought there was no way this could help me lose weight. I was eating way too much, how could I eat 2 bananas in one day and still lose weight? I quit pretty quickly. It didn’t make sense to me, and I wanted to lose weight fast. 

Fast forward a few months and I began digging deeper. Soon I was reading tons of articles on why eating for performance was the way to go. I started to become convinced this was the answer. With a dramatic increase in protein, my lifts started improving by leaps and bounds. I was PR’ing every week. My love for CrossFit was coming back. I wasn’t scared to go in and see the wod anymore, I was excited. Convinced I had found the answer, I put my all in to it. I was enjoying getting stronger and was less focused on what my body looked like all the time. I was eating rice Krispy treats after I worked out. I was enjoying cereal. I was full! Then my body caught up. I started noticing significant changes to my body. I was leaning out, my muscles were becoming more defined. I wasn’t just getting skinny, I was getting fit. That is the moment it clicked, and the moment I wanted to share how great this is with everyone. I wanted to share that your diet doesn’t have to be miserable. My goal is to change people’s relationship with food. Throw out the bad list & learn how to eat to fuel your hard working body!
