Our New Free Paleo Challenge Email Series!

I mentioned the other day that I'd created a Paleo Challenge Facebook page for anyone who is in any stage of a Paleo challenge. The Facebook page is also for anyone interested in learning more from me and our community about Paleo. Obviously, there's a lot of people out there who want to do a Paleo challenge, since we have over 1,400 Likes in just over a week or so! It makes me very happy that so many people are psyched … Continue reading

Paleo Plan 30-Day challenge facebook page

New Paleo Challenge Community Facebook Page!

I'm very excited to announce our new Paleo Plan 30-Day Challenge Facebook Page! I created the Paleo Challenge community page so that people can ask questions, find support, and learn from others' experiences. We all need encouragement and information when we're doing something as crazy as changing our entire diet! I know I did. So if you're doing a Paleo Challenge or planning to do one soon, please go on over and "like" the page, introduce yourself, and let us know your … Continue reading

Winners of The 30-Day Challenge!

Alright, it comes down to this. What we all (or at least I) have been waiting for since last month when this thing began: the results of the 30-day challenge. Last week, I asked everyone to send me their stories about how their health and spirits had changed over the last month while eating Paleo. And boy, did I get some tear-provoking tales. I chose two winners of this final challenge, but not how I'd expected to. We mostly received … Continue reading

Finish Line Not In Sight

You've reached the finish line of the 30-Day Paleo Plan Paleo Challenge! You're done! It's all over! You can finally stop eating all that disgusting prime rib, burger, bacon, and pork chops! Thank God it's OVER. Wait. While this 30-Day Paleo challenge is over, I'm sure many of you have realized this Paleo thing isn't so bad after all. In fact, it's kind of delicious, satisfying, and not bloat-provoking. You probably feel better in at least one way after doing … Continue reading

Just a short post to tell you all thank you so much for participating in the caffeine challenge.

Tell Us Your Cheats and Win!

I told you in this blog post that I wasn't doing the 30-day Paleo challenge, but that my New Year's resolution was committing to training my ass off for rock climbing. Well, I have been doing that. In fact, I did everything my coach told me to do (and then some), and it turned out to be too much. I'm now nursing an inflamed forearm and two creaky fingers, waiting impatiently to climb again. I realized that what my coach … Continue reading

Almonds on a scale

How Much Food Should You Eat?

The question of how much food one should consume has come to us at Paleo Plan in many forms. Some people write in asking if a particular meal they ate was too much food. Some people have written in saying they're often hungry on the diet. Others ask why they're not losing weight, even though they're following the diet strictly. So let's discuss this. First of all, your gender, age, height, weight, activity level, and how much weight you want … Continue reading

Move Your Butt. Win Cool Stuff.

Here's one easy workout you could do... I'll admit it. I'm not doing the 30-day challenge with you guys. I have a good excuse, though! My diet is pre-tty darn Paleo, I already feel awesome, and I'm at a weight I really like. It's taken me a while, but thanks to eating this way, I can say that now. What I AM working on during these 30 days (and beyond) is physical training. I may not have resolved on January … Continue reading
