(BPT) – To celebrate Men’s Health Month, take some time to evaluate your own health goals. Are you getting enough exercise? Is your diet including the right amounts of carbohydrates, protein and fats?

In this video, we learn why foods like pistachios make the ideal snack for athletes on the go, and why it’s important to age ferociously rather than gracefully.

* Combining the CrossFit training methodology with a diet of meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar brings “a jet stream of adaptation,” says CrossFit founder Greg Glassman.

In the pyramid Glassman created, nutrition is the foundation, with met-cons, gymnastics, weightlifting and throwing, and sport following.

“Each level builds on the level below it,” explains Nicole Carroll, director of certification. “If your nutrition sucks, these things will not be where they could be if it were more solid.”

Likewise, Glassman says CrossFit favors Barry Sears’ Zone Diet “because it does give me accurate and precise prescription for caloric intake and, more importantly, the exact levels of macronutrient that I can start at.”

Likewise, trainers and coaches can make informed decisions on how to tweak an athlete’s diet for improved performance, he says.

CrossFit HQ trainer Pat Sherwood says nutrition isn’t an either/or aspect of training.

“It’s not quality or quantity. It can and it should be both.”

    My problem with this diet is the huge amount of meat (as a European, it's way way too much…!) and too little fruits. They are right to suggest no added sugar, no processed stuff and more veggies…but beyond that it's just not for me. Also, the right kind of bread (whole grain with no added crap, baked in a bakery) is very healthy.

    No offense, if you can sustain that good for you! But I'm sticking with my flexible dieting. Because it works for me.

    Wow this guy has absolutely no idea what he's talking about. Carbs don't cause heart disease, animal products/proteins and fats do! This is so inaccurate that I literally laughed
