I know we have a lot of people on some sort of 21 day whole paleo detox zone thing. The "official" eating plan of RCF is real, whole foods. You get that part dialed in, and we'll start talking quantity.
The best way to know what weight you used in that overhead squat workout last August is to have journalled it -- the same holds true with food. If you make one change in January, let it be a food a journal.
We'll get a gym-wide nutrition something going in February.
In the meantime, looks like fructose is in the hot seat:
It's not only because of HFCS that fructose is so high in our diets -- regular table sugar only contains slightly less fructose than HFCS does, in an equal ratio with glucose. To further complicate things, agave nectar, which is popular in health food circles, has one of the highest levels of fructose of any sweetener around. Because it's less sickly sweet, glucose on its own is rarely used as a sweetener. So anything with added sugar is going to contain fructose and will, according to these preliminary findings, cause us to eat more.
