30 day challenge

The 30 day Paleo Challenge

What I would like to do is see 30 days, of solid nutrition from those of you that are not doing it and then begin to enjoy other things and see how they make you feel.

In walks the Paleo Challenge.

30 days $50.00 entry fee and winner gets the pot plus a massage.

The rules:

  1. You have to keep a food journal
  2. You have to weigh yourself before and after
  3. You have to measure yourself, chest, bust (ladies. If you are a guy and have moobs I don’t want to know your bust), waist, hips, neck, upper and lower arm, wrist thighs, claves and ankles, before and after.
  4. You have to take a before and after picture without Photoshop and it needs to be done in a swimsuit or the equivalent.

The food journal means meals and snacks to include beverages and desserts by day.

I will post everything on the blog (unless the photos are nude then I will keep them in a private collection) and everyone will look, read and vote. The votes should be anonymous and sent to me via email then I will put in my vote and winner gets the whole shebang-a-bang. Now everything will be taken into consideration, they body comp change, the measurements, weight and the food journal.

Proper nutrition quickly.

In short it boils down to Meat (dense form of protein) Fruits and Veggies and preferably low glycemic (not a lot of sugar) and nuts and seeds. You can do dairy if you want, but realize it is a heavy growth promoter.

1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.

50 -100 grams of carbohydrate (fruit or vegetable)

As much good fat as you like (olive, canola oil, avocado, coconut milk and oil.)

Best results would be to have the above however, if you need more carbs do so but realize that protein releases more chemicals that send the body the signal of being “full” than the other macronutrients. (Protein, fat and carb)

Carbs actually set up the body to ask for more food.

Start date

I would like to start June 21st to July 21st, this way we get a holiday in the middle.

I will post 3 workouts a week for those that are not working with me personally but want to work out. Also ensure that you are walking for about 2 miles a day.

Also, you have to put into the pot before you start. Challenge entry deadline is 18 June.

Lastly, remember that losing weight is not the goal. The goal is for us to get healthier/more fit and better body composition. So. those that are to skinny put on some weight and those that are to heavy lose some weight.

Okay have fun


  1. the posted weight, measurements and bikini photos automatically exclude me BUT i'm very much into it. so count me in to do it along side the real challengers!! ...would love to see some "magical" recomposition happen!! i also vote for a pick-up parkour class OUTSIDE, new venue each week to apply the functional training & have fun!!

  2. I'm in. You said strength training only for a few weeks, maybe you can discuss with me.

    Is this appropriate (your favorite word) to extend the invitation to beginners who know some basics and want to get fit (like my sister?) Would they know enough to train themselves ok?

  3. it is appropriate for anyone who wants to give it a go
    the strength training for you we will discuss
