Default Paleo diet and grappling?

Is it possible to follow a Paleo style diet and practice grappling/brazillian juijitsu? I train probably 6-8 hrs a week, plus about another 3 hrs a week of conditioning or strength training. I remember reading on another thread where Robb Wolf said that the more an activity uses the glycotic energy system, the more carbs you need.

Sure, just eat a paleo-acceptable starchy carb with your meals after each of your sessions to refill muscle glycogen quickly. Sweet potatoes, yams, squash, carrots. That kind of stuff.

Absolutely possible. The above advice is spot on. If you're too hardcore Paleo to allow for starches, a PWO fruit Smoothie with Protein is the shizzle.
