Thank you to everyone who came out! I had so much fun getting to sit and talk with everyone sans the loud music, barbells dropping, etc.
Although we got to chat for over an hour, here is a quick review:
- Realize this is a lifestyle change. We aren’t interested in a 2-week cleanse or a month long crash diet. We want real results that last. In order for the pounds to stay off (or on, if that is what your goal is), we need to make a lifestyle change.
- Start with general “Paleo” style eating. You don’t have to get crazy. The first step is cleaning up your diet. Before we worry about “grass feed”, “organic”, “wild-caught”, let’s clean up the foods we put in our body. After we get in the groove of things, we will focus on the quality of food.
-Fat loss while maintaining muscle or even gaining muscle if desired.
-Improved bathroom habits
-Better digestion and gut health
-Increased hormone function
