I started my Paleo diet on November 24, 2011 and followed a very strict whole 30 plan. No dairy, grains, refined sugar up until Christmas. As many people seem to discover on this community I came to the conclusion that I have gluten sensitivity and will actively avoid gluten for the foreseeable future. In addition to feeling great, probably one of the most unanticipated results of eliminating gluten was a decrease in anxiety accompanied by mental clarity (hard to explain). Subsequent to that I have followed a rather strict paleo diet with the introduction of some booze: New Years, Birthday, wife’s birthday, super bowl along with some cheat meals. Since I switched to Paleo diet I have lost 22 pounds since November 24, 2011. I went from 241 pounds to 219 pounds. My strength and endurance have increased dramatically during this time period as I record my WOD results from cross fit.
My Cross Fit Box is doing a Paleo Challenge I would like to maximize the next 30 days. In addition to going back to a strict whole 30 plan eliminating weekend booze and weekend cheats meals, I am looking for some advice to maximize the next 30 days. Here is an example of my workout schedule and eating schedule. I am open to the idea of fasting, or anything else that has provided powerful results as I would like to lose 10 lbs. in the next 30 days. Any links to some plans would be much appreciated.
Typical Exercise Week:
Tuesday –Friday Cross Fit x4 with Oly Class x2
Weekend: 6 mile run x2 usually Friday afternoon clear the head after work, and again on Sunday.
Weekend: 1.5 hours of Bikram Hot Yoga to stretch everything out.
1 TBS Nutra Sea Fish Oil,
Vitamin C 1000mg, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Multi-Vitamin, Selenium, Magnesium, Max Muscle Protein supplements x1-2x per day
Typical Meal Schedule
Breakfast: Cross Fit empty stomach @ 6:00 am. @ 7 am 3 eggs, 2 slices bacon, 1 protein supplement with almond milk , all vitamin supplements and fish oil
Lunch @ 12:00: I usually have leftovers from the previous night’s dinner with a piece of fruit. I use the Paleo recipe book I got off the whole 30 website. Some reoccurring themes are beef stew, sweet potato paleo Shepard’s pie, coconut curry chicken stir fry. If I am in a pinch I will have carb free dairy free Tokyo Joe’s curry Bowl, or carb free dairy free chipotle bowl.
Snack 2:00 handful mixed nuts
Dinner 6:30 pm: Something from the Paleo recipe book or (pan seared lamb sirloins and green beans can’t get enough of this meal) 8:00 sometimes I will have an additional protein shake supplement with almond milk
