I am on a strict Paleo diet with little to no fruit(maybe a serving a day). Do you think white rice/white Potatoes has its place in the paleo diet (Post WOD)? Or is it better off to avoid it completely? I do crossfit 5-6 times a week and I really want to cut fat and get stronger at the same time..Also how long can you wait after you workout for it to still be beneficial?

I probably eat a serving of rice and a serving of white potatoes per week, but I eat sweet potato and butternut squash fairly regularly. Most say the window after intense workouts is about 2 hours for optimum nutrient uptake. That can vary greatly with each individual. Just make sure you are eating enough. Crossfit can be taxing on the body, and the hormonal system, especially if you are starving yourself by not getting enough calories. Eat lots of real foods, meats and veggies.

Normally i go for sweet potatos. Personally i find them both more tasty and more filling. White rice also feels fine when i eat it. I dont notice any digestive distress.
Also if your aim is fat loss, dont over do it on the crossfit, 5-6 days a week is a lot of labor and might be stressing your system. excess stress and over taxing your body is a great deal more unhealthy than a plate of white rice.
If you are seeing the results you want great! but sleep and diet meant more than exercise in my case. I didnt start seeing the lean gains until i dialed crossfit back to 3-4 days a week
Enjoy your Chicken Fried Rice : )
