Guess I'll give it 3-4 weeks of everything w/o ditching the cereal or dairy in moderation, and see what happens.
To be clear the performance will increase and surpass carb based energy once your body adjusts.
I tried to think about it less- think of food as fuel and just blindly follow. Once results begin to make themselves apparent you won't be able to stop yourself! Whatever path you chose good luck - fitness regardless of whether it agrees with my views is better than being out of shape!

I use ~200 lbs for bench press which is not a lot but can easily do 25 pull ups, or 70 push ups once warm up.
I guess people have different goals.
This is what crossfit stresses- fitness and athleticism in a broad range of activities. Crosssfitters HATE bicep curls (aka bro-cep curls) because they aren't functional. If I were you I'd look into crossfit - your goals mesh well with what crossfit preaches just FYI
