FOOD AS FUEL PALEO CHALLENGE STARTS SATURDAY OCTOBER 17TH 10AM

 

caveman-dietHere are the basics.  We wil be going over the ins and outs on Saturday and all participants will get a shopping list, 7 menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks as well as some starter recipes.  Your homework tonight is to prep your house.  Clean out everything that is on the “Things that will cost you” list.  Out of sight out of mind!  If it’s around you will want it.  You have made a commitment for 4 weeks so make sure that nothing stands in your way and you make this as easy a possible for yourself.

If you haven’t made it to Max Muscle on Northsight and Raintree to get your body fat % tested please do so today, this weekend or at the latest on Monday.  If you can’t make it on Saturday and still want to participate, schedule a time with me early in the week (Monday or Tuesday) to get all of your measurements in.

For Breakfast on Saturday:  Eat some eggs scrambled with veggies and fruit with almonds/almond butter or sunflower seeds.  We will have some Paleo snacks here for you for after the WOD.
