Default Jon's Food Log

Hey All, First Time Poster Long Time Reader. I Am Posting This Log In Hopes That It Will Help Cut Out All The Grazing That I Do During The Day And Make Me Responsible For What I Eat.

I Have About 10% Bodyfat And Would Love To Cut It Down To Around 6 Or 7. I Am A Dedicated Crossfitter And Have Been Throwing In Some Extra Running And Power/ Oly Liffting. I Have Been Following A Modified Zone Diet. The Modification Being Taht I Stay As Paleo As Possible And Have Cut Out Some Carbs And Replaced With Fat. I Would Love To Get Some Feedback On What My Diet Looks Like From Anyone Out Their.

This Is My Fourth Day Of Changing My Diet To A High Fat Low Carb Breakdown. I Have Noticed That I Feel Fuller After Meals And That I Dont "graze" Near As Much. The Only Downside Is That I Think That It Is Affecting My Met-con Wods. I Feel Good For The First 3-5 Min. And Then I Just Hit A Wall. Any Advice On What To Change? Or Is That Just My Body Getting Used To The Higher Fat And Lower Carb?
