A good friend of mine has gone from being a nearly #300 Clyde who wasn't active, to racing in Half Ironman races, at about #190.
Aside from hard work in the gym, running, swimming, and cycling he also experimented with a lot of different diets. The one that not only helped him lose the most weight, but also correct a lot of levels in his blood work was the Paleo Diet.
I've spent the last year getting more active. Riding my bicycle on the road and on the trainer. I just recently joined a Gym so I can do some swimming, and work out to improve my cycling performance. It seems the next step is to change my diet (something I haven't changed at all yet.) At my friend's suggestion I am going to take the 30 day Paleo Diet Challenge
Have any other Cydes/Athenas here tried the Paleo diet? What did you find?
