ok so ive been doing paleo for 8 months and i absolutely love paleo! I've lost alot of body fat and im in the best shape ive ever been and most important i feel awesome!! now summer is coming and i want to rock a six pack! :)... My question is out of my diet what should i eat more and eat less so i get maximum results? note* ive been sorta eating alot of fruits and sweet potatoes. I love fruit but im willing to give it up for a couple of months or cut it down to 1 piece of fruit a day!

my diet:

Morning i fast than go to the gym work out in fasted state, than i eat two hard boiled eggs and some sweet potatoes, snack a banana.

Lunch:

its either chicken or a piece of steak either pork or bee and green veggies like zucchini and Brussels sprouts . I usually also have a grape fruit

dinner: I have some times eggs or another steak or fish with green leafy vegetable and broccoli and avocado.

Also since im fairly new to this GREAT LIFE STYLE!!! would you recommend doing heavy lifting or crossfit like workouts!? or a mix of the two... Again thank you for taking the time to read this and trying to help me :)

To get ripped and strong you might like to read stronglifts, leangains, colpo, john keifer, pavel tsatouline, suppversity. pubmed, libraires.. books... What bodbuilders do with 'cutting' etc might be relevant for you... These are some of the things I have read on and off tha tmight be relevant for you/ it seems they might fit with the phscial goals you wnat to achieve...

Also a couple pieces of fruit (plus avocado, which i'm not counting here as you're talking about acrbs I think...) i daresay aren't a problem for weight consideratino if you are active... Depends on what the overal picture is.... From what i see carbs around workout would be okay... There are plenty of people who write a lot about this sort of stuff though... Some of them I listed above if you're interested to check out...

Re heavy lifting, cross fit... depends on goals... both will help wth strength. cross fit more with aereboics, anerobic. Crudley, for good health i'd say cardio is good, so too resistance. Different people will say differnt things... I think it's great you are feeling great- and have come to think about this sort of stuff... Always things to learn as I am finding

Have you tried hacking the Lean Gains (Intermittent Fasting) diet to make it Paleo? It will have you macro cycling for improved results. Your calories and carbs will be a little higher on training days, and a little lower on rest days.

The art of expressing the human body is a cool read with some good pointers. (Bruce Lee was pretty ripped in his day.) Though, he was always into the latest technology / trends so that book would probably have been written very differently today.

When adding new workout exercises / resistance training, you really want to follow the correct forms to avoid injury. (Lee messed up a "Good Morning" exercise using too much weight and spent the rest of his life dealing with pain from the injury.) Youtube and a mirror is good for that, and starting slow.

I was into indoor rock climbing for a while, that's a fun way to hangout and challenge yourself while getting a good burn. Footbags are fun low-level cardio (and great for leg strength / coordination).

I tend to enjoy more of the higher-rep lower weight exercises and work on the tendons / ligaments and smaller muscle groups, then do the rest with body weight.

Ido Portal has a really cool take on fitness.

I feel like through a healthy diet and being active, the cutting happens naturally all by itself.
