Merits of A Paleo Challenge

Are you ready to take the plunge and take your health back into your own hands, lose that weight, and get in shape? And you’re convinced that Paleo is the way to do that? A Paleo “challenge” might be just what you need. A Paleo challenge is when you take a month or so of your life and devote it to eating right and taking care of yourself. You may find that even in that short of a time, miracles can practically happen. After the month, you’ll hopefully be convinced to stay on the diet indefinitely. Or you’ll at least know how good you’re capable of feeling.

Why Do A Paleo Challenge?
CrossFit gyms around the country (world?) are using Paleo challenges as a way to motivate their gym members to get their nutrition in order – a way to get their people to start the Paleo diet. They know it will make their members’ body fat come down and their performance go up. Sometimes CrossFit boxes even give away prizes at the end for the people who score the most points or lose the most fat. The challenges last for 3, 4 – even 6 weeks, and they’re changing people’s lives. Sometimes in these challenges, the only prize is that people look and feel better at the end of it, which we of course think is the best prize of all.

    Dear Paleo Plan,

    As a lady with lactose intolerance and gluten sensitivities and sensitivities to artificial sweeteners/additives, the Paleo plan seems to be the perfect diet for me. I have recently (past 4 weeks) cut out 90% of my sugar addiction and felt the amazing benefits, from which I once suffered huge energy and mood swings, night sweats, hypoglycaemia and binge and food addiction episodes,.
    I am a highly active athlete and have never been overweight but have had periods of struggling to maintain any muscle definition. Since removing sugar I have deceased body fat and found a more defined and stronger self, breaking plateaus in strength and training. My only concern is that I have lost Too much weight and am now risking losing muscle mass since removIng sugar and Grainy/starch carbs and rice based products from my diet.
    Any suggestions? I am not waiting to return to old diet choices as my new found strength and overall health has improved apart from being underweight now

      Renee Young – This happens to a lot of athletes when they first go Paleo, except they usually reach out because they’re feeling weak and fatigued on the diet as they’re interpreting it. You should add more carbs and/or more calories in general if you’re an athlete/if you want to gain weight. Here’s a blog post on that:
