Paleo challenge

wellness one : March 13, 2013 5:38 pm : CrossFit, Nutrition Blog

Wow what an amazing month we had for our challenge. Each participant gained so much knowledge about their eating that everyone was a winner, within that month individuals lost anywhere from 4 lbs all the way up to 10 pounds. Inches were lost on their hips and waist as well. Participants overall felt better, no more aches and pains.

With all the points totaled, a decision had to be made and it was tough because everyone did well.

Tennille and Akiko tied for the most improved woman
Kurt S. won for most improved man

Winners please post to comments your accomplishments (which is everybody)

Congrats to everybody who made the changes through the month…. Keep up the great work

This is the last week of our challenge. How are we feeling. Remember this month is a taste of what it is like to eat Paleo and clean. Great work on all your accomplishments this month

After this week, take what you learned about eating especially Paleo and see how you will proceed. 85-90% paleo is a great way to go about it.

The many questions we get on a daily basis from members is ” my cholesterol is too high” how can I get it down to avoid medications.
My response and Mark’s response is stay committed to your exercise routine or even take it up a notch and then the famous” what is your food like”

Finally somebody listened to what Mark and I say on a daily basis….

Kevin joined us about 2 months ago, he started in our CrossFit program, we told him to stayed committed to 3-5 days per week, listening to our coaching tips and he also made some food changes. He got rid of the processed foods and started eating ” clean/paleo

July labs compared to Aug labs, 1 month later…

Total cholesterol Down 20
LDL ( bad cholesterol) Down 20
Triglycerides Down 17
HDL (Good cholesterol) up 2
Great job Kevin… Keep it up….

Imagine what 6 months of exercise and good eating can do for you

We do this for a reason…..

    What is your take on weight watchers program?

      It doesn’t teach you anything about food, your given a number of points that you can eat in a day. The problem I have with that is jello has 3 points , as if jello is a good food choice.
      I’d rather you be able to go anywhere and look at a plate of food or what’s on the menu and be able to make good choices.

    Hey guys,

    So I do pretty well with my eating. I eat about 85% clean on a weekly basis. I stick mostly to the Paleo diet scheme and take fish oil, a multivitamin, and Osteo Bi-Flex on a daily basis. The issue I am having now is that I cant seem to get stronger.

    I am really looking to get stronger and build more lean muscle. It is quite disappointing when I can not Rx a WOD when heavy Oly lifts are involved. What are your recommendations as far as supplements are concerned?

    Do you recommend taking a whey protein post work out? How about a casein protein as a meal replacement? What about creatine, BCAAs, Citrulline, and Arginine? I have so many questions when it comes to maximum performance. Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Lets start with a food log. give us three to four days of a couple of work days and a day off.
      Lets see what and how much your eating before adding any supplements.
