Well, our 5th Nutrition Challenge is in the books. I’d say this was one of the most hotly contested challenges we’ve ever had. It was a very close race right until the end. After smoothing the teams to 10 people across the board. DEATH BY PROTEIN comes out on top.
A very special shout out to Matt McGarry with the highest individual point score of 385.
There are so many winners when we do this challenge…. The endless emails, and mentions of how “I feel better” are amazing. For those of you who went hardcore on this challenge and relentlessly stayed Paleo… (I’d say most of you… There are not only changes to your body but also to your performance…) I see and compete against you in workouts so believe me when I tell you there is a big difference of where you are now compared to where you were 30 days aga.
So What Now? Do you go back to your old habits or do you stay Paleo? I’ve given you a toolbox for the future. You know what to do…. Just keep doing it. Do it for 3 more months and it will become a lifelong habit. Do it for a year and watch how close you get to the top of the leaderboard. Do it for 3 years and watch yourself on the podiums of local events (be it 5Ks, swim events, marathons, mud runs, spartan, local CrossFit games competitions, etc…)
