Carlos Before and After 1.5 months of Paleo

Carlos Before and After 1.5 months of Paleo


Carlos’s 30 Day Paleo Challenge Testimonial“When I was introduced to The Paleo Diet, I was very skeptical. I have tried so many times and so many different ways to eat healthy in the past, all unsuccessfully. Plus, I am a chef which made it even harder- I am around delicious, non-paleo food for 10 hours a day! However, being in my late 30s and recently helping my mother (who is in her 70s) go through a very scary time in the hospital, I realized that I need to change the way I eat and take care of my body. My fiancé helped me get through the first week of eating paleo which was the hardest for me. After 3 weeks of my 30-Day challenge I already noticed DRASTIC improvements in my physical appearance, how I slept, and how I felt in general. For the last 8 years I have suffered from a very ugly and painful infection on my face (most likely Rosacea, although my doctor has never given it a name). I do not know if changing my diet cured my infection, but I have not taken medicine for it since I started eating Paleo, and have not had a breakout since.  I can only assume this is what healed my face as it is the only thing I am doing differently. In addition, I used to need one or two alarms to wake up in the morning, and even then felt exhausted. I now wake up without an alarm and am full of energy. I feel lighter. I have cheated once or twice with a small amount of grains and sugar, but every time I eat something that “isn’t allowed,” I feel sick and it just convinces me more that eating paleo is a good choice for me. I lost 15 pounds in a monthof eating paleo, and look and feel GREAT. After I finished my 30-Day Challenge, I decided to allow myself three cheats weekly, which equals about 85% compliance. I have managed to stay at my ideal weight since finishing my challenge, and intend to continue eating paleo for a long, long time.”

Sam’s 30 Day Paleo Challenge Testimonial
“I have had a great experience with the Paleo Diet during this challenge. My experience encompassed a lot of different things, not just weight loss. The biggest highlight was the overall sensation of well-being I felt from eating the Paleo Diet. The first thing I noticed was waking up earlier and with more energy than before just after a few days of eating paleo! This has continued throughout my challenge. I also no longer have gastrointestinal problems, headaches, or body aches. I feel healthier. I have lost 16 pounds, look thinner, and my clothes fit better (and looser!) now. This diet does not just affect the outer shell of your health, but the whole inner self as well. I am continuing with the Paleo diet even after my challenge because I have seen and felt such amazing results.”-Sam, 36 years old

Connie’s Paleo Diet Testimonial“The Paleo Diet has changed my life in many ways… Firstly, I have more and more mental clarity and less brain fog on a daily basis. Secondly, I have lost both pounds and inches around my midsection, which is VERY difficult to do for a post-menopausal woman. Thirdly and MOST IMPORTANTLY, I have a feeling of satiety or fullness for the first time in my life when I eat. I have never had an off-button with food… Sheer willpower and vanity were the only things preventing me from weighing 400 pounds my whole life. Now, I eat until I am full, a new feeling that I am still learning to understand, and feel satisfied.”

-Connie, Female, 55 years old


Jim’s Paleo Diet Testimonial “Five weeks ago I went to the hospital for a burst appendix, that had apparently been sitting for a couple of days, resulting in sepsis (my digestive system had shut down and every organ in my body was infected from the pus within my body). Immediately after being released from the hospital, my wife started me on the Paleo Diet. Considering how sick I was before I even went to the hospital, it is very difficult for me to pinpoint the things I know for a fact that the diet change has affected. However, I can say with confidence that I am recovering around twice as fast as my doctors predicted from a major surgery only 5 weeks ago. Also, I suffered from very severe vertigo for about a year before I went to the hospital, and my vertigo is now all but completely gone. I contribute both of these major health improvements to my diet change, as this is the only aspect of my lifestyle that is different from before I went to the hospital.”

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Today, within my mid thirties, I confirm what researchers found: Children who shared meals using family became adults who ate a great deal of fruits and vegetables and avoided
    soft drinks. In doing this, they disrupt their metabolisms, sometimes too badly
    to recoup from. Especially being pregnant you want to eat healthy meals to your
    child and yourself permitting a successfully delivery and recuperation.
    Partner with any food in the above list on how to lose weight fast with water.
