There’s a lot of noise out there on diets. It’s easy to get lost in it! We’ll highlight the basics of some of the top diets CrossFit athletes follow.
CrossFit is known for cutting through all the nutritional and exercise “BS” and embracing what actually works.

With more free knowledge at our disposal, CrossFit athletes and coaches have identified and followed top diets that fuel performance, health, and are genuinely enjoyable. While many diets can definitely be a fad, we’ll cover the most common diets that CrossFit athletes routinely follow.
