Paleo Lifestyle Challenge

You will keep track of the foods you consume and submit a journal on a weekly basis. Submit it contact@falloutcrossfit.com.  There will be a weekly drawing for the individuals that maintain a Paleo diet for the particular week. An overall prize will be awarded at the end for the individual that maintained the most consistent Paleo diet for the duration of the challenge.

The following rubric will be used to judge your food journal:

3 points – All foods consumed consisted of lean proteins, grass fed meat, free range fowl, wild caught fish, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, avocado, olive oil, and coconut oil.
