Get Photo’ed (optional): The before/after photos will remain private and will not be posted or shared outside of the challenge without participant’s approval.

Start your food log: You must keep a food log! Besides increasing the accountability factor they allow me to make sure your eating enough real food and address any potential issues. The food log can be very simple and general however the more detailed (and more honest) you are the better the results will be.

Eat PALEO!  We will host a meeting prior to the start of the challenge to cover this in more detail and answer any questions you may have.  We’ll discuss the roles of protein/carb/fat in your diet, how to get the most out of this challenge, and common mistakes to avoid.  Date and time TBD.
