SS/CFFB and Paleo

Anybody done it this way? Tried to do a search but came up empty! If so, what did you experience?

I know the CFFB site recommends paleo w/ dairy (and GOMAD) but Rip definitely does not recommend "clean eating".

Re: SS/CFFB and Paleo

Assuming you're talking about doing Starting Strength and CrossFit Football together, you won't need to. The amateur programming on the CFFB site follows a simple linear progression, just like starting strength. The difference is the conditioning that follows. It's almost a Strength Bias like program. Paleo is doable, just eat lots of good food, not just enough to survivie. The only part that is not paleo is the milk part, but if you're looking to gain size, you need the calories from something. Hope i"m not way off on the answer to your question.

Re: SS/CFFB and Paleo

Rip doesn't reccomend clean eating because milk is cheap, convenient and calorie dense. If you can get this elsewhere like Almonds, Olive Oil, Beef or other paleo nutrient dense sources than it should be fine to do.

On the other side of the token, why not just do SS like the man says and then switch to paleo when your done with your SS cycle. SS is never meant to be a lifestyle. Paleo is.

Re: SS/CFFB and Paleo

To be fair, I'm pretty sure Rip DOES recommend clean eating...its only when someone wants to gain mass does he recommend GOMAD and basically anything else...and its not just the cheap calories of milk he likes...he thinks there is something in the milk that sets it apart, possibly the IGF in it...he might be right.

Re: SS/CFFB and Paleo

Well, thanks for the info! I am not talking about both SS and CFFB together, I was grouping the two together.

Re: SS/CFFB and Paleo

this GOMAD this has started to annoy me slightly

starting strength is a great book but its not dogma. re-read it if you need to. im pretty sure Rip states (paraphrasing) that milk is good for young lifters because its cheap and packs alot of calories. he doesnt state it has some magical properties.

food is rediculously cheap in the western world. spend some money. variety is the spice of life.

i love the taste of full cream milk but drinkinng 3 liters of it a day would get pretty tiresome. id much rather eat slow cooked cuts of beef, ground beef etc.

Nope. We talked about this at his cert...not magical properties, but he feels it works better than just the calories.

Re: SS/CFFB and Paleo

What about drinking a bunch of whey protein shakes instead of drinking the milk, since I can't get it out here? Meh.. Probably wouldn't yield anywhere near the effect. No substitutes for whole milk, I guess!
