Welcome to the CrossFit Health Book Club. Each month, we will announce the title of a book based on a health topic we will cover through articles, social-media posts, IG lives, and webinars. The book for January 2023 is “Fat Loss Forever: How to Lose Fat and KEEP it Off.”  We would love for you to read along with us and provide feedback and questions for our webinar in the comments below.

This month’s book explores why many fad diets fail “on a physiological, psychological, and sociological level so you can better understand why what you did previously did not work.”

With chapters on counting macros as well as a feature on the ketogenic diet, by Kristi Storoschuk and Dr. Dom D’Agostino, this book provides evidence-based recommendations for sustainable, healthy nutrition that supports exercise but not body fat.
