I AM PALEO 5 – Challenge Results

The results of our first Paleo Challenge in 2013 are in… and IMPRESSIVE! For those of you that don’t know, we host these challenges a couple times every year. We get people to: 1) eat right (PALEO DIET)… 2) work out consistently here at CFW… 3) and create some positive lifestyle changing goals for a mere 30 days. Every time I input the results, I am still shocked as to how much we can change our bodies and turn around our health in only 30 days. The results below show the change in Weight, Inches, and Body Fat Percentage of our competitors this year.  Some huge changes as you can see… Denny with a whopping 33lb. weight loss, Gareth with an incredible 10% body fat drop, and Nancy with over 7.5″ around her hips and waist!  What they don’t show is the health and performance improvements that are felt by the people that did it.  Lots of performance improvements (for example, more energy is common and with lowered BW gymnastics gets easier!), quality and quantity of sleep was noticeable and with it reduced stress, and even big health improvements (not needing to use an inhaler anymore was just one example) were all common.  I know some people faltered here and there during the challenge, and some people stuck to the plan 100%.  Even though faltering a little bit, these people still improved their eating/sleeping/exercise habits and still got great results.  The people who faltered the least ended up (not surprisingly) with the best results!  Remember what you put in (in this challenge and in life) is what you get out, and the results speak for themselves.  Congrats to the winners listed below and to all challengers who improved their quality of life!
