I started crossift a week ago and I absolutely love it. I also switched to the zone... from 3200 cals to about 2500...

Although I have not tweaked every meal to the zone yet (might be consuming 2800-2700 right now), I have removed my pre-shake (300 cals), and some of the excess carbs i was eating for breakfast.

Problem is that although I am very happy with my stomach (getting lean!) my arms, forearms and calves have shrunken! :-( I was hoping to try and maintain myself... suggestions?

Hmmm, as it's been around a week since you started, I would say it's probably water-weight, as I can't imagine you losing any muscle-mass in any time shorter than a few months. I wouldn't be too worried with measuring the size of your muscles, rather, chase the performance on the WOD's, and I'm sure you'll improve immensely with a dialed-in diet and dedication.

Frank,

Jesse's right on the money. Your reduced carb intake has probably left your glycogen stores less than topped off. As such, it appears as though you've lost size when all you've really lost is "virtual pump". Don't worry about it! Stick with the plan for a minumum of a month - judge how you look, feel, and perform at that point.
