Paleo Crossfit Questions
I have been Paleo for about a year and saw some great results. I lost about 20lbs (from 145 to 125 for a 5'4 female). In the past few months, however, I have started to put weight on, at about a pound a week. I am feeling very frustrated and have... (more)
Hello, I do CrossFit 5x per week and have incorporated the Paleo Diet to go along with my training. I am wondering how many carbs should I be eating with this type of diet? Currently I am at about 160 grams +/-10 grams. Carbs Sources: 1/2 Cup... (more)

Last year and most recent blood work shows my total cholesterol as 209 (9 pts above "normal" level). Should I be concerned? I don't know how this could be because I eat strict paleo, only nuts, avocado, veggies, fruit, and lean meat every day!!!... (more)
I am a 22 year old female who trains 5-6 days a week with running (cf endurance), crossfit, and yoga. I'd say I train about 6-8 hours a week. I have been paleo for a few years now but have recently become even more strict (less cheat meals) and... (more)
Please forgive me if this one has been asked before! I am new to Crossfit - as in, I joined last week and completed my second WOD today - and I signed up to compete in my box's Paleo Challenge. Tomorrow I will get a dip in the Dunk Tank, have my... (more)
I have been doing the Paleo diet strictly for 5 full weeks now. I also started doing crossfit at the same time and go 4 times per week. I am 10kg over my goal weight and am doing this mostly for weight loss. I have not lost a single pound in 5... (more)
Howdy Folks, Okay, but seriously. I'm 6'1" 22 year-old male who just started CrossFit a month ago. I was relatively lean upon starting, probably between 13-11%, I don't really know. I used the Tanita machine at my schools gym and it said 13.5,... (more)
I've been doing CF and train about 5-6 days a week. While i'm getting stronger, i'm not leaning out. I am following a paleo diet. I actually have stayed the same weight for a month, but have felt the clothes get loose. Am I over training? ... (more)

Hey guys, I'm a 21 year old male. I'm 5'11" and 160ish lbs. I'm a pretty athletic guy and some would probably say I have the build of a runner. I did crossfit over the summer, which helped out my strength and I just started it again three... (more)
No way is that enough food to gain lean body mass on. You should be eating more. Also, I'd try eating 3-4 real meals instead of the 6 snack-sized meals you're currently eating. You don't need a huge surplus to gain mass, but you do need a slight... (more)
I have been doing CrossFit for two months now, 4 days a week. As the process got started I became more aware of my diet and am now implementing IF and Paleo style diet. My question is is 2200 calories too low? I have not been dropping muscle,... (more)
Regardless of your caloric intake and ratios, most people around here will tell you that doing crossfit four times per week is too much. Your body needs time to recover, which it is not getting.

Saw a post where someone did a paleo and workout challenge with someone that did paleo, crossfit and advocare. Curious as to the results.... Advocare is expensive...and I believe I can replicate results with paleo, exercise (crossfit) and... (more)
I found a local (and relatively inexpensive) crossfit here in Kennebunk, ME. It's 5 dollars/workout, which looks great! Only 60 dollars a month for 3 days a week there. Did crossfit really make the difference in your body for any of you? I had... (more)
So I came across this INCREDIBLY irritating article in Jezebel today taking the piss of paleo/crossfit and calling it a 'fad diet'. What do you guys think? http://jezebel.com/5899319/stop-using-cavemen-as-an-excuse-for-your-fad-diet (more)
It really seems that most paleo eaters are usually cross fit lovers too? My problem with this, is that all of the success and positivity surrounding paleo could be due to those putting their effort into cross fit. I can't afford to go to the only... (more)
I do not believe most Paleo eaters are Crossfit lovers. Most Crossfitters are perhaps Paleo lovers. I have nothing against X-fit and it has a lot to offer, but personally I do not consider X-fit that Paleo but to each their own. The answer to... (more)
I started doing Paleo this past March and it's the best lifestyle change I could have done. At first, I never thought I could eliminate all those bad food items that are not allowed! Eventually, i learned to love the good food. I'm happier than... (more)

So i received my second copy of the Paleo Magazine about a few weeks ago and not too sure the magazine is well worth the money spent on it. I'm finding it to be way too much more advertisement than worth information related to be Paleo. Don't... (more)
I have been doing crossfit and Paleo for the last 2 years. I originally had lost 30 Lbs fairly quickly but have hit a serious wall. I am not sure what to do. I feel that Paleo may no longer be right for me. As for Crossfit, I also feel that my... (more)
