For Chris and I (Shara) adopting a Paleo life style has been more about making good choices rather than feeling deprived of certain foods. Yes we have cheat days and still are not 100% Paleo every day but since we have started to revolve our meals around lean meats, veggies, fruit, nuts, and seeds we have noticed an improvement in how we feel, an increase in energy and overall better WOD performance. Please stop by and ask a trainer about ways to improve your diet and overall health.
