First and foremost, we want to take a moment to congratulate you all on a hard earned 6 weeks of progress. By far it was the best competition we’ve done. We had less than 5 drop-outs out of 60 (awesome), and teams that fought hard until the end! Thank you for putting so much into this!
We hope that you all learned a lot about yourself and the work you are able to put in. Now that you know what you are capable of, please keep it up! Don’t throw all that progress out the window just because there are no points to be earned. After all, we didn’t even tell you what you were winning or what the points meant! You did it for yourself! Remember that!
“The Girls You Haven’t Yet” (Rachelle Nerbak, Meghan Sweezey, Alyssa Parker, Michelle Gibson, Karen Edwards and Kate Forkey)….. A team where many didn’t know each other at all…. 4 members haven’t even been members at 802 for 6 months yet or even heard of Paleo before! This team came together from day 1 and pushed each other hard! Joint team captains, helped push the team out of their comfort zones and up to the next level. Their hard work, was definitely noticed! Congratulations Girls, we all definitely now know who you are.
Worth mentioning was the top of the Nutrition leaderboard week after week. Alyssa and John Fowler, Kevin Sendra, Rachelle Nerbak and Krystle Phillips were a few standouts at the top week after week after week. Thanks for giving you’re all guys!
Team prizes will be announced soon! The finishing touches are being added as we speak!

READ THE Paleo Handbook
*THE INTENT HERE IS TO EAT REAL FOOD. MEATS, PROTEINS, NUTS, SEEDS, FRUIT ETC. ANY ONE SERVING OF ANY OF THE MENTIONED BELOW WILL LOSE ALL POINTS FOR THE CATEGORY FOR THAT DAY. NUMBER OF SERVINGS DOES NOT MATTER.
NO SUGAR: 2 Daily Points
(READ Labels in full, sugar is in everything) Pure Honey and Pure Maple Syrup is allowed but recommended in moderation for optimal results. Stevia in SFH products will not cause for deduction in this category.
NO PROCESSED FOODS: 2 Daily Points
Good rule of thumb: If man made it, its in the center isles of the grocery stores, its shelf stable for years and it contains preservatives, don’t eat it… beware of flavors!
NO GRAINS: 2 Daily Points. Grains are very simple carbohydrates. That means they break down into sugar quickly. This causes a spike in your blood sugar levels, which in turn causes a spike in your insulin levels. High insulin levels prevent your body from burning fat because they cause your body to focus on converting the excess glucose in your bloodstream into energy and storing the rest as fat.
NO ALCOHOL: 1 Daily Point
NO TOBACCO: 1 Daily Point
SLEEP: 1 Daily Point for sleeping 8+ hours a night
WATER: 1 Daily Point Consume 1/2 your bodyweight in ounces of water daily
