Huge congratulations to Paul Buchanan, for winning the Spring Nutrition Challenge. Paul, aka, Paleo Paul, aka Prospect Paul, dove right in and absolutely destroyed the challenge, losing 14 pounds and 3% body fat in 30 days. Paul remained on SFH supplements but was otherwise strict throughout the 30 days. Paul had some slip ups, but was always quick to jump back on the wagon, he also kept up with CrossFit 4-5 days per week. The bottom line, and what was evident from Paul’s journal entries was that Paul was all in. He didn’t ask me if it was ok to eat whole grain, 17 grain, super grain or any kind of grain he just cut out the stuff 100%. He ELIMINATED the foods that destroy your gut and spike your insulin causing you to store body fat. How many calories did he eat? WHO CARES, because he was eating the right foods and fueling his body for intensity. How many calories must he have burned, a lot right? WHO CARES, because he was crushing workouts with high intensity each and everyday. Paul, only RXs workouts about 50% of the time, but that has nothing to do with his results. When he scales, he scales to his ability and maintains intensity to yield amazing results. This is a great example of what can happen when you go all in on your nutrition, and come to the gym with intensity on the brain each and everyday.
