    Does eating primal hurt your wind (cardio) when you train? Just curious as I'm about to start training boxing. Thanks for any advice or tips!!

    Nope. Do sprints once a week and your cardio will be fine.

    Nope! As to your follow up question; although i know you were addressing GC, I'm taking Judo/MMA/Jits, and Muay Thai. I also do my primary art of JKD on the side

    Hurt? More like help. I don't kickbox anymore except to play around and get some exercise on a bag, but if I had known how to eat like this when I was younger... I did get a friend of mine who competes in grappling to switch to primal and he swears it's the best thing he ever did to get in shape.

    I used to do Krav Maga and would love to get into it again.

    Going high-carbs helps me a lot with BJJ. I recuperate faster and feel better. I'm very active though, and pretty lean. I generally eat low-carbs without thinking about it, and my performance starts to diminish a lot after 4-5 days in a row of grappling if I'm not careful.

    What he said. You need to make sure you keep your carbs up post workout (assuming you train at a high level) and the meals afterwards to recover properly and actually have energy

    Frank Mir just switched to a Paleo-style diet after a failed vegetarian experiment. He feels much better.
