I was talking about the zone diet dipshit, which involves measuring and weighing everything. Some of these people will seriously count out almonds, eat like 2.5 strawberries, half an apple, and crap like that, to make sure they get their blocks 100% correct, and if you even do the math on it, some of these people are eating about 1300 calories a day.
Theres a big debate in the crossfit "community" about what to eat, unweighed, unmeasured paleo, paleo zone, or zone regardless of where the nutrients come from. I'll tell you one thing, and thats that I'd rather shoot my head than talk about it, as its really not worth the time and effort most of these people put into it. The worst ones are the newbs who hear about this stuff for the first time, and its like they just met god, and have to preach the word to everybody and everyone they know about it.
Also, I was referencing what the article was discussing, i.e. giving cliff's notes. I never said they were my views, but they do happen to resonate with my experiences.
I've trained regularly with 2 crossfit COACHES for about a year now, and another 2 for about 3 months.
Crossfit is adult day care for white people with enough discretionary income to drop anywhere from $120-200 a month, for one size fits all group programming, pretty much based around getting in and out of the gym in whatever the gym's allotted class time is.
