Too much fruit in paleo/zone diet?
Hello, my name is Phil and this is my first post here. I'm new to cross fit (1.5 months) and I've already shed nearly 20lbs and gained 8 reps on my pullups, and knocked over 3 minutes off of my 5k time! Incredible, but now I want more results and my diet needs to be cleaned up.
After watching a video in the Crossfit Journal about utilizing a Zone diet for best results with crossfit, I decided to give it a shot. I'm going to start with 20 blocks, but that just seems like a massive amount of fruit to consume to me. 180 grams of carbohydrates, all stemming from fruit. I'd think this would also include a lot of sugar and possibly hinder fat loss. Is there something I am missing here?
Do most strive for a paleo type zone diet, or do most crossfitters use a combination of complex carbohydrates (some grains, etc..) mixed in with fruits?
Thanks for any help,
