The phytic acid in legumes can prohibit the absorption of nutrients.

You don’t have to go all paleo to do crossfit and be healthy. Beans are a good and cheap source of protein and micro-nutrients, as long as they are properly cooked and your diet is varied. There are a handful studies that indicate there may be other negative effects from lectins, but there seems to be a lack of major studies to support the claim.

Pasta though is low in micro-nutrients, so that’s a better target for removal.
