Athlete: Jesse Ward
How I Eat
I weigh and measure my food
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
My wife is a saint and she measures out 15 blocks paleo/zone for me most days. I add to that with a breakfast of meat and Lara bar(s). At night I eat another protein meal with too many blocks of fat.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts
I write my own programming
I record my workouts
I do the main site WOD(s) if I travel on the weekend and train with the crew teaching. During the week I try to get 2-3 workouts in depending on what I've programmed for the gym, typically a good heavy day and whichever workout(s) look the worst so that gym morale stays high.

I played youth or high school level sports
