February 1st (Day 22 of 50)

Ok we are almost half way through the Paleo challenge.  I’m sure I don’t have to remind you guys but there is $1000 dollars on the line.  Not to mention the opportunity to get in the best shape of you lives.  I’ve seen the posts drop off a little bit in the last few days and I want to encourage all of you to stick it out.  It is going to go extremely fast and it will be worth the results.

Is anyone struggling with anything that we can help with?  Cravings?  What to eat? When to eat? When not to eat? Post on here and let us know.

    I’m concerned with calorie intake. Consulted with the Maxmuscle guy (couple weeks before going paleo) and he calculated that to reach my goal body composition I’d have to lose 8lbs of fat, and gain 3lbs of lean muscle. With this, he put my calorie needs at 2800/day.
    I’m doing well with the 40%fat 40%protein 20%carbohydrate intake ratio, but know my calorie intake is low.
    I would appreciate anyone’s thoughts on the calorie concern.

    • josiahlorentzen says:


      From the research that I’ve done regarding Paleo and Calorie intake I’m going to suggest that you ignore it at this point. (Just Momentarily) Rob Wolf and Mark Sisson both suggest getting to your desired body fat % and then start measuring calories/blocks to gain mass. Trying to do both is definitely possible but definitely harder as well.

      So I say pick a body fat % goal and go for it. Once you’ve reached it we’ll start changing some things up to put on some mass.

      Hope that helps

        Cool, I will go that route and see how my weight turns out.
        Surprisingly with the calorie reduction, I haven’t had excessive cravings or felt overly hungry.

    I’ve been doing really really well with eating until this weekend..lol like i haven’t even craved. however i have noticed that like i have a hard time stopping when i’m no longer hunger and i usually just eat till i’m full. is this just like a mental battle or am i not getting enough protein or something? i chew a lot of sugar free gum cuz i feel like i always have to snack..idk its prolly just a mental thing i need to push through.

    • Tiffany says:

      Just a few thoughts, Sugar free gum makes me hungry. . . i think it the non-sugar or something. The regular double-mint in better for me to chew if i feel i need something. And if i eat a snack instead of gum then it helps me to not eat as much at meals.
