Would you mind explaining what a diabetic crossfitter is? And what is the paleo diet?

just meaning any diabetics that do crossfit...and the paleo diet is basically what they call the cave man diet. The Paleolithic/Paleo/Caveman/Primal Diet Defined also heres a crossfit video that shows the types of workouts i do.
I love crossfit and it has helped my blood sugars sooooo much. my long term goal is to make it to the crossfit games within the next 5 years.

not a crossfiter but will be trying p90 in january to work on my core muscles and stuff. not a strict follower of paleo diet but think my sugars are a lot better and I feel a lot better following (or at least trying to follow it)

how do you qualify for the cross fit games?
