60 days of Paleo and Crossfit with Pictures

For 60 days, I have eaten strictly paleo, and on a very strict schedule. I kept consistent, I only had 5 cheat meals in the 60 days, and kept to the Crossfit main page. Every once in a while, I did a Crossfit football workout because I find them effective and fun. I also did 30 minutes on the elliptical after ever WOD to burn off extra calories. I had 8 hours of sleep almost every night of the 60 days. I show these pictures, not (only) for self satisfaction, but because I think if I can do this, a person who has been addicted to sugar and bread for the 20 years and 7 months of my life, then anyone can accomplish a noticeable weight loss and great increase in energy and the sense of having a healthy body.

Please forgive me for the silly pose on the last picture!!!!!

Re: 60 days of Paleo and Crossfit with Pictures

Wow, that's a tremendous difference. I'm getting close to two weeks now. I haven't had any cheat meals so far but I'll probably have about 3 or 4 by the time I get to 60 days.

This is actually pretty motivating because except for getting the 8 hours of sleep and the post WOD cardio, I've been doing the same thing. I just hope the sleep gets better as my body adjusts to the paleo method of eating.

Re: 60 days of Paleo and Crossfit with Pictures

Wow, sounds like we both went on a weight loss mission at the same time. (see my Summer of Crossfit post) and ended up losing similar amounts of weight.

Good job man, you definitely have more self control than me. I seemed to be constantly cheating. The thing is, I feel so much better when I don't cheat, so its motivation to stick with the diet. I'm sure you noticed the feel good benefits of not cheating.

Re: 60 days of Paleo and Crossfit with Pictures

Brian, I feel ashamed. While I am quite flattered and impressed with your results, I have cheated the past 4 days. I am flying from my hometown to college and stopping at a few schools and friends places. I have been eating quite unhealthy and feel terrible. But...back on the wagon in a few days and I will get back to the mission.
