30 Day Pure Paleo Challenge – Rules and Regs:
The goal is to eat ONLY foods from that qualify as paleo-friendly for the entire 30 days. In its most simplified form, this includes lean (un-processed) meats, fruits, vegetables(non-starchy), nuts, seeds and most oils.

The challenge will work on a point system. For every serving of a non-paleo food/drink that you consume, you earn points. So, obviously, points are bad, and the goal …is to obtain the lowest possible score for the month. Some foods that are considered borderline will only constitute a 1 point penalty, where as all the strictly “Paleo forbidden” foods will count as 2 points.
The 1-point borderline foods are: Wine, Beer, and alcohol (1 serving = 4 oz, 12 oz and 1.5 oz respectively). Lean cold cuts (since in their purest form they are Paleolithic, but are processed) like ham, turkey, deli chicken and bacon. *These foods are only worth one point up until you’ve reached 5 servings for the month, then they begin accumulating 2 points per serving.*
All other foods that are clearly non-paleo foods are worth 2 points. The obvious ones are sugar (other than the natural sugar that occurs in fruit), all artificial sweeteners, all whole grains, legumes (including peanuts), all dairy (milk, cream, butter, cheese, etc). Also, some less obvious foods that carry a 2 point penalty are: protein bars and shakes, honey, cottage cheese, corn (this is a whole grain), potatoes, sweet potatoes, and yams.
Each person involved in the challenge will pick one or two teammates or partners to pair up with for accountability purposes. (Pick someone you see frequently). You’ll log your food intake each day in any way that is convenient for you (Paper journal, online, etc.) and share it with your teammate. This doesn’t have to be every day, but often enough that you’re accountable to someone! You and your teammate will keep track of the total points accumulated (or, hopefully, lack thereof) for the entire month. At the end of the month, everyone will report back with their total scores.
Rather than offer a monetary incentive, we’ll do this the Crossfit way! The top two winners will get to either devise a workout or choose a Hero/Girl workout for the rest of the group to perform. Shy of doing two consecutive naked Murphs with a 40 lb. weight vest on in the snow, the workout design is open game!!
Good luck everyone!!!

    I added half and half to my coffee in the 2nd week which is a major no,
    no on this diet and I stayed at the same weight for the week.
    But If you are trying-to-conceive , every time you miss your period, your hopes that you are now finally pregnant go
    up. Now, the HCG excess weight damage approach is achieving several followers in this country.

    But they usually beat around the bushes and expect you to
    do what Arnold does, a million sets and 5 hours of steady pumping iron. Doing these physical exercises will help
    reduce your cravings and the stress associated with them by
    refocusing your consideration on the breathing exercise, not your cravings.

  5. how to pay off student loans  September 21, 2014

    Generally, students give the first priority to government loans as they
    give subsidized money. However, if they could not pay back the loans, it becomes defaulted student loans.
    Clearing your loans can be a difficult task, especially when you do not
    have a job yet.
