Before and After:
Photo – front, side and back view (optional) but this is a great motivator! A picture is worth 1000 words! You may not like the before pic…so work hard to be proud of the AFTER pics!
What will happen on Saturday???
We will meet and discuss the rules and regulations of the challenge. Saturday we will help get you started on what eating Paleo is all about. You will also need to do some research online in your free time. Please wear loose fitting shorts, shirt, and a sports bra for women. We will be taking caliper measurements so we can measure your results at the end as well. We are not basing this off of your body weight, but we will be taking your weight on the first and last day.
At the end of the challenge the top male and female will be picked on:
1. Points through what they eat
Measurements will have a higher weight in determining the winners.
The top male and female will get to create a gift card to Rogue Fitness so you can buy yourself some awesome CrossFit gear. www.roguefitness.com
You will be required to keep track of your eating. Please type this up for us and you must submit this with a scoring sheet that we will give every Sunday. So your scoring sheet and food log (typed out) will need to be given to us on Sunday to receive a new sheet. You must keep track of everything! From this log, you will be give a daily score based on your compliance with the Paleo Diet. A score of 5 would represent a day of….
Each challenge participant will start each day with 5 points. These points represent the 5 main aspects of the Paleo diet.
Do not eat dairy. This includes butter, cheese, yogurt and milk (including cream in your coffee).
Do not eat grains. This includes bread, rice, pasta, corn, oatmeal, and also any gluten-free pseudo-grains (quinoa, etc).
Do not eat legumes. This includes beans of all kinds, lentils, and peanuts. No peanut butter!
Do not eat processed foods. Processed bars like Zone and Balance bars, dairy-free creamers, any type of sugar, etc.
Do not drink alcohol, in any form.
Sweeteners allowed=Stevia, Raw Honey, Agave (in moderation)
So, if you follow points 1-5, but have a beer with your dinner, you get 4 points for the day. Subtract a point for the day if you have cream in your coffee. Eat a bagel – subtract a point. Etcetera. If you have a beer, cream in your coffee and a bagel in one day, you’re down to 2 points for that day. If you have a question about whether something counts as a point or not, ask and we’ll figure out an answer.
There is a potential for 5 extra bonus points per week.
1. You get 1 extra bonus point for everyday you participate in a CrossFit workout @ Full Strength. You must check in on facebook. You can do this through your phone. The benefits of Paleo are magnified when combines with training program that combines constantly varied, high intensity, functional movements….ie. CROSSFIT. Train Hard. Eat Clean. Live Life. DO NOT OVER TRAIN! TAKE YOUR REST DAYS. MAX OF 5 POINTS PER WEEK.
WHY DOES OUR WEIGHT NOT AFFECT OUR SCORE???
The challenge was designed to reward those who stay dedicated to maintaining healthy eating, sleep and exercise habits over these weeks of the challenge. The reason it was set up that way is because eating Paleo isn’t a weight loss diet. The concept of Paleo is to provide your body with the optimal fuel that it was designed to run on.
Eating Paleo is primarily about feeling your absolute best, mentally and physically. Looking better in your swimsuit will just be a side effect.
Even for those who aren’t looking to lose pounds, changing how you eat is going to help your body build muscle, and those changes will be measurable.
