Performance Fueling Prescription Launches December 15.

admin : December 7, 2014 11:16 am : News

PerformancePresecriptionGraphicSustainable.
Abundance.
Flexible.
Nutritionally sound.
Results-based.

Those are the five guiding principles of the Elite Athletic Development | CrossFit Arlington Heights Performance Fueling Prescription set to launch Monday, Dec. 15. Registration to access Performance Fueling Prescription resources is now available.

The EAD | CFAH Performance Fueling Prescription was created exclusively by certified nutrition educators to help EAD | CFAH athletes create a fueling strategy unique to their body composition and training goals.

The Prescription starts with the EAD | CFAH Performance Fueling Energy Calculator, a tool developed exclusively for EAD | CFAH athletes to help each build the optimum plate composition for meals & snacks. The Performance Fueling Energy Calculator considers the following factors:

BeachBallBaseballScaleEAD

Body Composition is not determined by the scale. A hard ball and beach ball each weigh roughly 4 ounces, but they are very different. Would you rather be more like the taught, firm hardball or the fluffy, squishy beach ball?

  • Training Style. Strength & Conditioning, MetCon or Endurance.
  • Eating Preference. High Fat or High Carbohydrate.
  • Activity Level. Frequency and Intensity.
  • Goals. Maintain, Lose Body Fat or Gain Muscle Mass.

In addition to program resources and tools, athletes who commit to the EAD | CFAH Performance Fueling Prescription can participate in interactive seminars & workshops, and have the option to add on one-on-one consultation with a certified nutrition educator.

The EAD | CFAH Performance Fueling Prescription is the antithesis of traditional New Year’s Resolution plans based on scarcity and deprivation, and “good” or “bad” foods. Instead, the PFP is designed to ensure athletes abundantly consume foods they enjoy in and that will help them look good and feel better.

The EAD | CFAH Performance Fueling Prescription is the "anti-resolution" resolution. More than 75 percent of the people who resolve to "lose weight" or "diet" fail after just one week, primarily because they dramatically restrict calories.

The EAD | CFAH Performance Fueling Prescription is the “anti-resolution” resolution. More than 75 percent of the people who resolve to “lose weight” or “diet” fail after just one week, primarily because they dramatically restrict calories. The PFP is based on abundance, not restriction.

Many athletes will be surprised to learn that they are hundreds of calories below their ideal energy intake after they complete the EAD | CFAH Performance Fueling Calculator. Consuming too few calories forces the body to utilize lean muscle as an energy source, and will quickly derail performance goals — in the gym and throughout the day. The PFP includes next steps / recommendations for those athletes who are consuming too few — or too many — calories to support their performance goals.

The EAD | CFAH Performance Fueling Prescription will prove to be an excellent resource for all athletes — even Paleo Peeps — looking to increase lean muscle mass, decrease body fat percentage, or improve performance.
