How To Adjust Diet To Compensate For Calories Lost In Crossfit Workouts?

Anyone who has completed a CrossFit benchmark workout knows about the intensity of their workouts and how quickly your energy level drops. You’ll also know that your body uses more calories than you burn during high-intensity exercise – even though these high-intensity workouts don’t last very long – and will need to take this calorie deficit into account when dieting. The average woman burns 2810 calories per day through low-intensity activity, according to the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and just 3551 calories per day through high intensity exercise if moving at a moderate pace for an hour[i]. This means from now until mid-June, when I start my typically endurance training program as part of my team for our competitions, I should be looking to consume 2000+ less calories per day because I’ll be doing much more high intensity work in those months. Furthermore, since extra lean body mass is often stored as fat around the midsection before upper body muscles become larger it could affect how well my extreme interval training shakes up my weight/strength figures too! With this in mind here are some tips on adjusting your nutrition plan to compensate for the loss of muscle mass brought about by intense CrossFit WODs without seeing significant weight or strength loss[ii]: Increase protein intake[iii]

Typical protein recommendations range from 0.8g up to 1.5
