Hey everyone. I've been crossfitting about 6 months now, and have reached 13% body fat. I never really stuck to any diet, as I'm still young. For the past 3 weeks, however, I've been closely following the Zone diet.

I have not seen any reduction in body fat. I eat 12 blocks a day (I weigh only 130lbs) in 3 4-block meals, with a 1-block snack. My carbs come primarily from fruit, with very little from veggies, and even less from grains. I do still eat and enjoy dairy.

Should I cut fruits? I really can't stand veggies, wreaks havoc and makes me starve 1 hour after a meal, where if I had the same 2 blocks as a fruit I wouldn't.

Or maybe I should eat more carbs in the morning and less towards the later in the day? What kind of ratio should I use? This stuff gets so confusing with all the conflicting info around.

Check out the paleo diet "think paleo zone combo" and also make sure to pay more attention to the gi of what carbs you are eating.

safe links

BTW from a health standpoint 13% bf is great if your performance is good I would not sweat it.
