You can do that with any program.

Yep, it's primarily a diet issue.

The question of "should you follow the navyseals.com WOD?" is one only you can answer. Check out my response at the end of this (wfs) thread and see if it fits your goals.

I agree. Pick one program and stick with it for at least a month. If you don't make the gains you're looking to make, try something else.

I usually break diet into four categories:

First, The CrossFit prescription: "Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, no sugar." Very straightforward and a great place to start. Here we're concerned primarily with the quality of food you're eating.

From there, you can go to Paleo (and it's variations). Paleo takes quality to the next level. Strict Paleo cuts out legumes and dairy, but many people see great success with Paleo + dairy. Run a google search for "Dr. Loren Cordain" or "Paleo" and you'll get plenty of information.

Next up is Zone Where Paleo is concerned with quality, the Zone is primarily concerned with quantity. It is recommended that for the first two weeks of Zoning you weigh and measure everything you eat. You will lean out very quickly on the Zone, and at some point will need to add additional fat blocks to your daily total. Read more about the Zone here (wfs) or run a google search for "Dr. Barry Sears" or "The Zone Diet."

Finally, there is Zone Paleo. This combines the Zone and Paleo diets, so you're concerned with quality and quantity.

Check out Robb Wolf's blog here(wfs), as well as some of the articles his written for Performance Menu. "42 Ways to Skin the Zone" is particularly good.

Much wisdom here, great post that boils down the essence of a lot of complications!!!

One more dimension to the diet thing, which usually follows after getting the quality and quantities fixed . . . manipulating the timing. This commonly leads to he form of "intermittent fasting" (including fasts (periods of not eating) anywhere from 12 - 24 hours, multiple times / week (many folks don't eat for 16 hours every day, getting all their consumption into an 8-hour window)).

I never made it past step 1 (basic CF prescription), but many people swear by the IF (intermittent fasting) option.
