Lean, mean and green. Next month we’re excited to bring to you the next Challenge…get ready to eat, drink, sleep and train like a Caveman. You’ve all heard bits and pieces about the Paleo Diet, now you’ll have the opportunity to live it. Take the next few weeks to educate yourself and learn more so that you can decide if this next challenge is best for you. I think it’s important to get the whole family on board in order for this to work as a lifestyle change. It’s honestly taken 6-8 months for it to finally stick with ours. Get a jump start on the challenge today. Eliminate fried foods and sugar…. or bread, cheese or milk. Start snacking on nuts, fruit and lean beef jerkey. Why wait, start today, it will be a lot easier to stick with it.
The past few weeks, I’ve seen a drastic change in Luke’s physique, fitness level and stamina. Since he’s been training for sectionals he’s been on a strict 90/1o Paleo plan and because of it my eating habits have gotten cleaned up too. I strive for 80/20 and the kids are more along the lines of 60/40 (they still do dairy).
I’ve attached a few websites that can help… The Paleo Diet Living Paleo CrossFit Scottsdale Nutrition
Looking forward to seeing how dramatically this challenge will change you.
