Sacrum & Coccyx

This paper summarizes the findings of the 2017 CrossFit Foundation Academic Conference, “Diet and Cardiometabolic Health - Beyond Calories.” The conference was convened to consider a specific question from multiple angles: Do specific dietary components have an impact on metabolism and/or disease risk that is not fully explained by their caloric value? The paper demonstrates the inherent flaws in existing evidence in nutrition science and highlights the single strongest conclusion that emerged from the conference: that compared to other carbohydrates (e.g., starch), added sugars lead to greater increases in a variety of cardiometabolic risk factors.

“An institute whose experts have occupied key positions on EU and UN regulatory panels is, in reality, an industry lobby group that masquerades as a scientific health charity. The Washington-based International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) describes its mission as ‘pursuing objectivity, clarity and reproducibility’ to ‘benefit the public good.’ But researchers from the University of Cambridge, Bocconi University in Milan, and the US Right to Know campaign assessed over 17,000 pages of documents under US freedom of information laws to present evidence of influence-peddling.”

“Productive application of force is technique dependent.”

Technique is everything. It is at the heart of our quantification. You will not express power in significant measure without technique. You might expend a lot of energy, but you will not see the productive application of force. You will not be able to complete functional tasks efficiently or effectively. You will not be safe in trying.

“Most people let their doctor make the decisions for them, but the evidence tells us that we should be cautious,” Professor Peter C. Gøtzsche explains. Gøtzsche, a specialist in internal medicine, also recommends avoiding medications whenever possible. “We live in a world that is so overdiagnosed and overtreated that in high-income countries, our medications are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer,” he observes.

CrossFit affiliates 10 years and older took an extraordinary risk when they first opened their doors and began offering CrossFit training. In 2009, the CrossFit methodology was sound and efficacious. But the business model was unknown, unproven. In order to understand, honor, and celebrate the extraordinary changes that have taken place in fitness and health over the past 10 years, CrossFit, Inc., has invited all 10-year (and older) affiliates to join us at a special event in their honor this September in Whistler, British Columbia.
