81kgs + a fuck load of cardio if hes trying to gain/maintain weight sounds about right

Spot on. I do about 15-18hours of cardio a week. If I don't replace with good carbs I litterally eat my muscle stores for energy..

Yes and due to to amount of cardio hes doing he requires alot more calories to maintain therefore to be able to cut at a good pace he has to eat that amount of calories.

Regardless of what my goals were physically, there is no way that I would be able to function without replacing my energy stores without 6 large meals per day. + supplements... On some days I burn 6000+ calories.

I am ripped as anything and have really good cardio and endurance, but this is at a deficit of bulk and strength. Short of roids the only thing that would make my bulking quicker would be cutting my cardio habits.

I have had my diet personally tailored for me by a dietician to ensure that I have sufficient protein, carbs and good sugars for each part of the day so that I can continue to function effectively.

If anyone is about to start a workout routine with a diet I suggest getting a good vitamin and mineral daily tablet. I take Swisse Men's Ultivite and swear by it. It just keeps you from getting lows in minerals which might lack from exercise/ diet change.

At 81kg this is near impossible. 1 or the other.

HIIT cardio only, long distance sprinting is bad for gains.

Not a part of Paleo :)

I usually have carbs in my cheat meals anyway.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolithic_diet

The paleolithic diet (abbreviated paleo diet or paleodiet), also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional plan based on the presumed ancient diet of wild plants and animals that various hominid species habitually consumed during the Paleolithic era-a period of about 2.5 million years duration that ended around 10,000 years ago with the development of agriculture. In common usage, such terms as the "Paleolithic diet" also refer to the actual ancestral human diet.[1][2] Centered on commonly available modern foods, the "contemporary" Paleolithic diet consists mainly of fish, grass-fed pasture raised meats, vegetables, fruit, roots, and nuts, and excludes grains, legumes, dairy products, salt, refined sugar, and processed oils.[1][3][4]


tl;dr
No grans, legumes, dairy, salt, sugar and processed oils.

So what I usually eat is:
Meat (Home made marinade or just spices) + Salad/Veggies

I did a pretty lengthy cut for a second half of last year and experimented abit with carb intake and all cutting carbs did was fuck me over in the gym and make me feel like shit, results were alot better once I re added them back into my diet.

Well I guess crossfit is a bit different.
I'm going to give it a go anyway.

Crossfit produces people like this, so it can't be that terrible :)

Dont really think carbs have anything to do with crossfit, but if you want to look like that u sure as hell need carbs.

IMO only time you need to drop carbs is if u are preparing for a contest or trying to drop that last % or 2 of bf and are plateauing.
