Look Better Naked 30-Day Paleo Challenge

Okay everyone! We have finally started ramping up the Look Better Naked 30-Day Paleo Challenge. This will be an opportunity for everyone that’s interested, whether you’re a member or not, to participate in a totally fun and, at times, challenging nutrition endeavor. Anyone interested will put in a small donation to the pot ($10) at the beginning of the challenge. You are required to post your meals and snacks to a shared Google document, either on a daily basis (recommended) or you can wait and post weekly what you’ve eaten. But the point is, you’re recording what you’re eating and sharing it with the rest of the group and we’re all being accountable.

Before and after pictures will be taken of each entrant (Men in boxer shorts or shorts, Women in shorts and sports bra) but pictures do not have to be posted public, however all pictures will be viewable only to the group of participants in the challenge upon finishing the 30 days of Paleo. Participants will then judge the person who has had the most change for the better based on before and after pictures. This person will receive the pot of entry fees paid by all participants.

Prior to the start of the challenge, we will hold another Paleo Nutrition Seminar, with some added and new information, as well as tips and recipes to get you started. I highly encourage all of you to participate in this challenge because it will show you just how amazing you can feel and all because of what you’re eating and not eating.

The challenge will start on November 1st and run until November 31st. Yes, I know this is the month of Thanksgiving, but trust me, there are still LOTS of things you can eat that are Paleo and still stick to this challenge. You won’t be missing out on anything by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, trust me.

***I want to add a correction here: We will have two categories, one for men and one for women, so there will be two people splitting the pot equally.

  5. Tuesday: Protein shake for breakfast, grilled chicken and small spinach salad with red wine vinegar and olive oil for lunch, almonds for snack and protein shake for dinner. LOTS of water…no caffeine.
    Wednesday: Same breakfast and lunch as Tuesday, banana for snack, lean bunless burger and sauted mushrooms for dinner. LOTS of water. I did break down this morning and have a cup of coffee with a little creamer and a splenda but I’m weaning myself. At least it wasn’t a diet soda, right?

  7. Ok, need a little advice here. As you know, tomorrow is the race. We are signed up to attend the pasta pre-race dinner tonight. We are not going to eat but have to attend as I am speaking at the event. So my question is, what would be a good pre-race dinner tonight? I dont want to go way out of of the box the night before a race but want to stay on the plan if possible. Thanks.

  8. Kevin,
    that is rough! here’s what I would do: its still okay to carb up a little bit, but avoid a ton of carbs. Stick to sweet potatoes for your starch and you really shouldn’t need more than about 2 cups of mashed or 2-3 handfuls of baked/fried fries (as long as they’re paleo, not the frozen bagged kind).

    For race day, try those little almond butter packets, and if you can, do the maple or honey flavored ones intermittently with teh chocolate, so you’re not just loading up on sugar. You can still work in some dried fruit and/or trail mix (no peanuts or cashews) if you’re needing some carb, and you should have a little, just so your muscles can absorb the protein and fat from the nuts.
    I would be intereste to hear how it goes, how you feel, how does this method compare to other races when your nutrition has been different. Keep us updated!!
    and let us know if you see super-marathon-man lol

  9. so I got to catch up on some days here. On Wednesday I had eggs in the morning, snacked on almonds through out the day. I had Chipotle for lunch, just steak, veggies, regular salsa, and guac. Then for dinner we had a tilapia in tomato sauce with mushrooms. Yesterday I had eggs again and fruit, then got a bunch of the almond butter stuff from Price chopper…. they still rock lol. Had a salad for lunch with veggies and olive oil.. and then honey crusted pecan chicken which was nice with a cucumber salad. Three days down and lost 3 pounds….

  10. Had eggs and bacon and juiced some fruit for breakfast, Had the shrimp soup but added chicken to eat for lunch. This soup is amazing I could eat it all day. Then for dinner had chipotle with steak,chicken, pico de gallo, and lettuce. I will tell you what I woke up this morning feeling completely refreshed and ready to go I don’t know if it’s the diet or because I took a shit before I went to bed. I’ll keep you posted.

  11. Hola-
    Breakfast- eggs with a little bit of cheese and turkey bacon. We juiced apples and oranges.
    Lunch – shrimp soap and chef Mike added chicken too.
    Dinner- chipolte; chicken, meat, lettuce, corn, guac, and lettuce. I didn’t know we couldn’t have corn:(. I’m still learning. I thought we didn’t absorb since it still comes out intact. Hehe.

    Dinnner – steak on the grill with sweet mashed potatos

    Last nights WOD was awesome! Andy and I video taped ourselves doing our deadlifts which was really, really helpfull to look at our form. I’m going to start doing that more.

    SARAH, we had a debate last night about wine. Is wine ok with Paleo? Reason I’m asking is this Friday, Heather and I are celebrating our 16th anniversay and I was going to take her to Em Chammas on Saturday night. They serve all kinds of meats so we are going to be ok with the food but I was wondering about a glass of wine with the meal. Not a must by any means but just curious.

    My body is changing and I love how my clothes are getting bigger…or rather, how my body is getting smaller! I feel great! I also love how, in my mind, I see food as fuel, not as a source of comfort.
