As I scientist, I was sickened by the shoddy research practices that led to the unsupported nutritional guidance we've been receiving from the government. I had spent the past 10 years feeling like a total failure because my every effort to "eat less and exercise more" had been unsuccessful in generating weight loss. I realized after reading Taubes's research that it wasn't how much I was eating, but what I was eating that prevented me from losing weight. I had already eliminated sugar from my diet, years before, so it was clear that grains and legumes were the problem. I stopped eating wheat, oats, corn, rice, beans etc this winter and the results have been amazing.

I know I still have a lot to learn about CrossFit, nutrition, and feeding a family. So, I'm creating this space to share ideas, recipes, achievements and setbacks.
