Some gyms simply don't pay enough or any attention to proper form. If you read commits from Crossfit threads / forums, the diehard would jump on you for questioning anything done in the video, regardless if it's about poor form when lifting heavy weights ("it's ok to go ugly on your PR"), or about very pregnant women lifting heavy weights in Olympic lifts ("its good for the baby; doctors are wrong"), or pre-adolescence deadlifting over 200 lbs ("that's old science; doctors are wrong"), or an insane fat based diet ("science is wrong; read Adkins").

I was with you until your last point. Diet is the one thing Crossfitters know about

The Paleo Diet is not very well thought of by dietitians and MDs. Probably not good for you in the long run. The point is that we can at least discuss it here. In a Crossfit forum, people would want to hang me.

Again, there is nothing wrong with Crossfit as a hobby / sport in and of itself. Probably not the best as a supplement to your main sport though.

Discussion of diet plans, guaranteed controversy.

Everyone has an opinion and an allegiance to a different diet, and are more than willing to argue the benefits of it.

I've had great success on relatively strict paleo diet cycles.

I found that overall I just started implementing some of the concepts into my regular eating and I feel much better overall than I did before.

Eat less refined foods, more meat and vegetables, cut down on dairy. Kind of seems like a no-brainer.

But Mindbomber's right - we could debate on this forever

In my opinion, the ideal diet is as illusive as alchemy. The basics can be understood, sure, but the complete picture, not a chance.

In pre-agricultural societies diets vary massively and definite extremes exist; Inuit people traditionally maintain diets composed nearly exclusively of raw meat, while South American indigenous people traditionally consume diets with much more plant life. The human body is very adaptable, and therefore there is no definite right and no definite wrong. Both Northern Canadian and South American indigenous people were traditionally very healthy people. despite the radically different diets. I'm healthy and my diet is inversely opposed to Skinnypup's, who is also healthy. If someone can develop a formula to pin point the ideal diet based on a persons unique body chemistry and activity levels, they'd win a noble prize. Until then, arguing the finer points is all well and good, but there's no definite right or wrong.

Just my opinion.

To keep the thread on topic - Crossfit sucks.

How different are the diets of indigenous northern canadians who ate mostly fish and meat with a bit of roots, to the indigenous south americans who ate mostly meat and fish with a bit of roots?

99% meat diet versus diets with lower than 25% meat, from the reading I have done.

Who ate 25% meat? That can't be pre-agriculture

Before agriculture, I don't think any humans ate 25% meat. Probably more in the 95-99% range. There are still many tribes who still do...

In fact, it was hunting for meat which allowed our digestive systems to shrink, and in turn allowed our brains to grow. If we ate like vegetarians throughout our evolution, we'd still be apes.

It's more difficult to acquire meat than it is edible plant life in certain areas of the world, hence the lower rate of meat consumption in those areas even pre-agriculture.

Those plates equate to 10lbs. They can be useful if you are teaching beginners to pull from the correct height. It is light enough that you can drill technique at the right height.

Or in the case of crossfit, the emphasis is on volume so the intensity can't be too high. Some guy was watching me snatch the other day and asked me what my, 'Fran', time was.. Interesting
