Hack my results

So, I started using myfitnesspal.com and using it to track my calories from protein, fat and carbs. Based off of a 2,830 daily diet, and what it recommends after some manual tweaking, it says I should keep my Fat at 196 grams, Protein at 220 grams and for Carbs, it shows a daily goal of 73 grams. I'm keeping carbs low because under 100 grams should be good. I do eat very close to Paleo, I eat clean. I am a 5'11" male, 175lbs., 29, and do CrossFit througout the week.

Do these numbers sound right? Should I go lower carb or go higher? Fat, Protein?

If you are doing Crossfit I would recommend bumping your carbs up. Do some simple carb cycling. On hard days: have say 150-250 grams of carbs. On rest or off days, keep carbs low. Just keep the carbs to primarily pre and post workout. Carbs are not the enemy. I thought so for a long time. But lo and behold, when I gave in and put carbs back into the daily rotation, I've now seen much better performance and my body composition has changed favorably.

Unless you have digestive issues going higher on carbohydrates would probably be helpful. Yet except for those who really train HARD I think it is suggested to keep carbs to max of 150 grams/day.

Your fat and protein values look fine.
