by Bird, Jessica, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 150; 1586145
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this directed project is to develop a nutrition and meal guide for CrossFit athletes. Specifically, this program aims to provide (1) nutrition guidelines specific to each workout to elite CrossFitters participating in high intensity interval training (HIIT) and (2) examples of scientifically-based, workout-specific meal plans for elite CrossFit athletes.

A Formative Evaluation Survey was conducted. Three experts in the sports and or nutrition industry completed the survey. Opinion scores were determined using a 5-point Likert scale. Overall, the expert committee tended to agree that with the evaluation items, indicating that the meal guide content as appropriate and the layout was conducive to the target audience. In the future, to further evaluate the efficacy of the guide, a research project or other qualitative evaluation may be conducted on CrossFit athletes using the guide to determine its ease of use and effect on dietary changes.
