Nutrition support for the new year

I saw this poster today just after talking to a couple of people about loading the barbell, so I figured it's fate and I should post this.
If you're thinking about a new years resolution that has a nutrition component, let us know. Amy and I are generally against a "challenge" or a "competition" when it comes to food - food is to fuel your body and you should eat right for the sake of your health not for the sake of any points. However, I've been talking to some people about introducing a paleo-style template to help them with some body composition goals, and a "support group" of people going through the same transition could be helpful. It would be nice to talk about your shared experience, and it will help the changes stick (that's how I got started with my 7-year paleo adventure). We're more than happy to organize a group of you attacking some nutrition goals in the new year. Just let us know if you're interested.

Don't read this as solely a weight loss plan, think of it as a fueling adjustment. We can tweak this for anything from weight loss to mass gain or better performance in the gym, or simply just feeling better (that was the big one for me when I started this, I didn't think I felt bad, but once I knew what good felt like, I was shocked). Let's start the new year eating better together.

Compressed schedule tomorrow evening. Weightlifters - remember, Randy will be at the American Open on Friday and Saturday. Friday's weightlifting hours will be overlapping with the 5:30 S&C class and we'll be closing up by 7:00.  Saturday's schedule remains unchanged.
