Any reasonably varied diet, including a strict vegan diet, will provide all the protein you need as long as your calorie intake is adequate.

Beans and soy aren't paleo.

From what google tells me, anyone who has attempted and posted about it seems to give up (whether in posting about it or simply the diet itself, I can't be sure).

Thanks!
1: There's no reason why you can't do CrossFit or any other exercise program on a well planned vegan diet.

2: Paleo man ate both grains and legumes so there's no reason why you shouldn't eat them too.

Re: Vegan Paleo

Look up info on Brendan Brazier and the Thrive Diet.

He's a vegan triathelete who does a no wheat, soy, gluten, corn, refined sugar or dairy diet (sound familar?) but somehow makes it work.

Re: Vegan Paleo

Thank you all for the feedback!

I appreciate all of the advice although I must say I have no plans of including animal products in my diet. I realize this already makes me a bit of a misfit in the CF domain but I don't think it will affect my performance in any significant way.

In searching the boards I found many people criticizing and arguing against other member's ethical beliefs or support for specific scientific evidence.

In addition to my philosophical viewpoints on the subject (which, in theory could be argued against) I have issues with my digestive system, like IBS, which, for me, have warranted a vegan diet.

I'm knee-deep in the reading you all have provided and again thank you for your feedback. I am grateful for any and all help that I can get!

Key word Triathlete. Not a crossfitter.

IBS is even a better reason to get that resolved.

I would suggest going Paleo for that. Or at least supplementing fish oil.

See Robb Wolf's site for more details about such inflammatory gut problems.

Ehhh, whatever though. Can't help ya if you don't want help.

I'm definitely reading up on all the information that I can and have been attempting to eat at least paleo-inspired if not entirely strict paleo.

Like I said in my previous post, my specific digestive problems have warranted me, as an individual, a vegan diet. After some trial and error it was the one means of my functioning with minimal interruption and discomfort from my digestive system.

I do appreciate the feedback, though.
