A Paleo Testimony from Alison J.

In the middle of March I decided to do my own nutrition challenge. For those of you have been working out at CFRV for a long time may remember when I first started at the box a little over 2 years ago I was overweight (size 16). It took me about 8 months to lose 45 lbs and I had been happily coasting at my goal weight for the last year and half. I spoke to Jesse a little bit about my new goals and every time his response was your workouts are there, now you need to focus on nutrition. I challenged myself to follow a meal plan very similar paleo. I was always intimated that paleo would be too hard core for me to follow – much to my satisfaction I really enjoyed it. There are a ton of great recipe available on the internet. I eat more now than I ever did before in terms of volume because I indulge in vegetables and proteins instead of starchy foods. I feel better overall and I saw results! In 24 days I lost 8 pounds and 15 inches.  If anyone is contemplating trying paleo I would be willing to share my experience. I am, by no means an expert, but I learn and I’m inspired by people in the box daily so if I can do that for someone else I would love to!
