CrossFit NapTown Paleo Challenge January 9th – February 2nd, 2012 Summary: For those who don’t check the CFNT website (which you do since you are reading this), the CFNT Paleo Blog, the CFNT Twitter page, or the CFNT Facebook Page… we had a CFNT Paleo Challenge (and yes, that is a jab at those who don’t pay attention to our announcements and say “I didn’t know that!!!”…as they are announced on numerous platforms). The Paleo Challenge started with roughly 31 Members and ended with 22. It’s called a “Challenge” for a reason. Choosing a certain lifestyle of eating choices is a difficult task and to those who completed the challenge should be Congratulated! This proves that you can do anything for 25 days if you put your mind to it. The challenge was not all about weight loss but more so a way of introducing a new lifestyle and educating one another on a new topic… “The Paleolithic Diet.” The challenge had a list of rules in order to be eligible for prizes. Criteria:
- Weight Loss Percentage
- Waist/Hip Ratio Change
- Before/After Photos
- PRE/POST Paleo – WOD 1
- PRE/POST Paleo – WOD 2
- MUST POST at MINIMUM 4x’s Per Week on the CFNT Paleo Blog.
TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS by CFNT MEMBERS (22 Members) = 162.3 lbs(NOTE: This was completed in 25 days)
Eric Gardner Starting Weight – 210.6 Ending Weight – 196.8 Weight Loss – 13.8 Percentage Weight Loss – 6.55%
Leslie Gardner Starting Weight – 146.6 Ending Weight – 142.6 Weight Loss – 4 Percentage Weight Loss – 2.73%
Most Post / Food Blog Posts – Liz Gottlin I encourage everyone to go on the Paleo blog to read some of Liz’s poems. They were absolutely amazing. Each included references to Paleo with creative and witty twists. Special Stuff! Here is just one of the many poems you missed out on during the Paleo Challenge. From Day 21…
“The things that I miss Are about to return Can I resist That latte I yearn?
The hummus bean spread that is so good on my carrot Or the taste of baked bread will disappoint Merrit!
I think a nice balance between caveman and me Will be my new talent The future will see“
Overall Weight Loss (%) – Joe Stuckey Starting Weight- 223.4 Ending Weight – 205.4 Weight Loss – 18 Percentage Weight Loss – 8.06%
I would like to Congratulate and Thank everyone for their participation and support through our first Paleo Challenge. There will be others in the future… probably starting sometime in the Spring to get us all Summer-Time Beach Body Ready!!!!!
