Sometimes people ask me about what I eat, and when I tell them I eat a primarily Paleo diet their expression changes to something that reminds me of a basset hound contemplating a frog in its water dish. “You eat what?” “You know, lots of dead animals, no dairy, no bread or grains…Paleo.” Despite my best efforts, I can never seem to explain the concept to someone without having them hit me with a barrage of complaints of how they could never possibly live without their precious [insert poisonous food here], and I have once again successfully scared someone else away from eating in a way that will make them feel better and live better, and potentially save their life. So, I’m going to let the experts explain what it is for a change, and I’ll preface it with this – if you have any desire at all to give yourself an almost unfair advantage at the gym, check this stuff out:

And join us for our 30-day Paleo Challenge, beginning on Tuesday, September 7th to see how much better you can feel. I’m even being nice and allowing you to drink all your grain-based alcohol beverages (otherwise known as “beer”) on Labor Day, but after that it’s Paleo time baby. Details about the challenge will be coming in the next few days, so bone up on your Paleo knowledge and get ready to become awesome from the inside out.

Today’s WOD:

    So is anyone up for doing the 5 Ton 5K? Looks like a good time. And im looking at you Kevin, plus its right in your backyard.

  • Amir

    Yeah I’m in on this one! I have been waiting for a challenge like this.

  • After their initial surprise, you need to point out what you can eat. I can quickly rattle off that I eat meat, fish, eggs, nuts, vegetables, fruit, and berries. Pointing out that this encompasses lots of foods. (Nuts are only tree nuts, and shellfish, roots, and mushrooms are also on the list, but I don’t get that detailed.)

    But how do I eat my cheesteak without the roll and cheese?
