Today we start on another Paleo Challenge and I hope that all of you join in on this journey. You will never get to where you want to be in the gym or where you never thought possible without first getting this squared away in the kitchen. Lets get one thing straight right off the bat… This is not all about weight loss! The transition to a healthy Paleo lifestyle can and will help improve everything from your skin, sleep, mood to your training performance and ultimately body composition. So for the next 30 days you will fight temptation and old habits and by the end of this I hope you will find as I and many others have that you don’t “NEED” those things in your life any longer. Those of you on the fence and not convinced “it’s for you” I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and look at this as an experiment for the next month. You will never know until you try. —–>What is Paleo?? Read the nutrition section of the website and we will be uploading more information shortly to both the member forum and on the website. Paleo = Meat, Fish, Eggs, Veggies, Nuts/Seeds, & Fruit NOT Paleo = Grains, rices, breads, pastas, beans, soy, sugar, dairy, all PROCESSED/ refined food.
