It totally depends on your goals, but I'd say if you're just starting out and getting used to eating a Primal diet, it's a great start.
I'm waiting on Mark's book to arrive (so excited) so in the meantime I'm trying to figure out my diet until it comes. Is the following a good breakfast:
Spinach, Chicken & Egg (2 whole) Omlette with a smoothie made up of 1/2 banana, 1/4 blueberries & 1/4 cup coconut milk ?
Welcome. Sounds like a good start.
This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think a conservAtive start would be to journal all intake and shoot for around 75 daily grams of carbs. At 23 grams, that banana is right out. Replace w/ strawberries, fewer carbs for the same amount. Berries will be your friends.
Ok, thanks for all your responses.
I will nix the banana
At the same time if you're doing crossfit I don't think the higher carbs is going to hurt you that bad. I think concentrating on what to eat at first is probably more important than tweaking right away. There are way too many tweaks between IF and carb cycling, ketosis, etc etc. Most important thing is don't eat grains or beans and eat as whole of foods as you can afford. Try not to go overboard on fruits and nuts. Fruits, because they are high in fructose and nuts because they are very easy to over eat and most are fairly high in omega-6.
To start with, don't stress about any of it. Eat whole foods when you are hungry. Eat lots of vegetables, plenty of fatty meat, and some fruit. Do that for (at least) a month or so and see how you feel and where you are with regards to your goals. At that point you can start looking to tweak things. Most people coming off a SAD will have some internal healing to go through, regardless of their starting weight. Carb refeeds and IF and those sorts of things are useful when everything else is already lined up.
