The Zone and optimum performance

I've watched and read a lot of the articles about the zone and crossfit, and I have gone on to have great results on a zone+paleo diet due to that great info.

However, just coming off the back of a sport science degree i really would like a more in depth explanation of how the zone optimise's recovery and performance. For example, physiologically, why is that one individual on the zone can get better improvements in Fran time compared to someone on a garbage diet in a given time? i.e. what has facilitated that individuals neuromuscular system to improve on the zone more than that of someone slurping up the sugar with 75% carb diet?

Thanks, Joe.

PS. I don't mind sifting through other reading if anyone can recommend anything!
