CrossFit WOD + Paleo Challenge
1st Paleo Challenge of 2011
We are officially halfway through febuary; that means it’s time to reflect on your New Year’s resolution(s). So, how’s it going? Did you commit to kicking the sugar habit or revamping your diet? Whatever your New Year’s resolution may be, we’ve got just the thing to help you stay on target: a Paleo challenge! On March 1st, CFD will be kicking off another Paleo challenge. But to stay true to our “constantly varied” motto, things will be a little different this time around (see how below).
Here are the new suggestions:
Suggestion#1: Keep it simple
For the next 6 weeks you are free to consume all of the following foods:
animal protein (“Eat meat that once had a face and a soul” -– Robb Wolf)
veggies (try to get the bulk from non-starchy vegetables)
nuts (except peanuts)
spices & salt
olive oil and coconut oil for cooking
Suggestion #2: No naked carbs
To prevent your blood sugar from spiking, keep your meals balanced and don’t eat fruit away from protein.
Suggestion #3: You will team up with an accountability partner.
Every day for the next 6 weeks you will keep a record of all your meals and snacks (don’t worry about writing down portions). At the end of every week you and your partner will check in with each other (i.e., share, laugh and vent). Communication can be via phone, email, text, or in person.
Suggestion #4: No more than 3 alcoholic drinks per week.
All participants should be limited to 3 of the following alcoholic beverages per week (not all at the same time):
1) Red or white wine (4 oz serving)
Suggestion #5: There are NO cheat days.
The purpose of this challenge is to give your body some time to heal by removing potential irritants such as sugar, gluten and dairy from your diet. Just one “cheat meal” can cause a flare-up that can set you back for weeks. If you DO cheat or “accidentally” eat a pizza, please fess up to your accountability partner or one of the trainers. Your money will be forfeited but you can still get back in the saddle and finish off the remainder of the challenge if you’d like.
Suggestion #6: You must participate in a before- and after-WOD.
The “before” workout will take place on Tuesday 1st the . There will be a short Q-and-A immediately following. The same workout will be repeated at the completion of the challenge: Fri 31st .
