I've just now found CrossFit while deployed here in Iraq (very sore after the last 2 WOD's, by the way) and have tried to implement every aspect of the training I can, to include diet (Zone and Paleo Diet books on order and on the way). I just have two initial questions:
1) Is V8 juice a viable sub for my veggies when the real deal is not readily available? Any glaring negatives in drinking the juice with respect to the Paleo diet?
2) Is there a particular brand of turkey/beef jerky I could have sent over here to give me another protein option that is more "Paleo" than others (i.e., no sugar or corn syrup)?

Yours in The Suck,

If you can get the low sodium V8 its actually a prett good alternative, if not the regular is fine. With regards to Jerky I think the brand Costco stocks is actually pretty clean. The bottom line for you IMO is to get as much quality food as you can to off-set those periods when it is scarce or low quality.

If you ever have specific questions please do not hesitate to email me directly:

Thanks for the e-mail address and the suggestions. I'm a newbie, so I'm sure I'll inevitably have more questions. I'll have to put in the order to the parents on Costco jerky!

Thanks again...
