The challenge was designed around the Paleo Diet, a nutrition plan based on consumption of foods that were only part of the diet of Paleolithic humans. In a nutshell - no processed foods, no grains, no dairy, no sugar, no artificial sweeteners. The comprehensive scoring used to determine the winners took into account three major components: adherence to the Paleo diet, performance on weekly WODs (workouts), and improvements (both athletic improvement and improvements in body composition). During the challenge, participants had to track their food and track of any "cheats" (deviation from a strict Paleo diet), take their body measurements, post photos at the start and end of the challenge and complete a video testimonial diary at the completion.
I was not in the challenge myself, but I took the measurements and many of the photos, was part of the online support group, and was witness to the dedication, teamwork, devotion, and camaraderie that this competition brought about with the group of people who gathered together from FCCF to give it a go. Without saying more, let me SHOW you some of the results with some pictures and statistics that some of the participants have granted me permission to use on the website.
