Hello everyone,

Recently, I saw the feed of the before and after photos of starting paleo. I was impressed at many of the transformations. I am practically at my goal but am interested in any feedback I can get. I am looking to flatten and tone my stomach within the next 2 months. Any powerfoods you would suggest consuming more of? Any foods to avoid? Also, if you use a particular video on Youtube or any you've come across that are quick and effective? I try to do a body works class a few times a week but with working overtime and having appointments lately, it's hard to make every class.

My body looked significantly more toned after I did a Whole30. Turns out my muscles were just hidden by a layer of fat :) The Whole30 is intense, but definitely a quick way to clean things up and drop a few lbs.

It's mostly diet, don't worry about exercise so much.

Low/No carb, low calorie days with only one or 2 meals are how you lose fat, but don't do that continuously or you'll screw your body's systems up. Diet hard 2 or 3 days a week to lose a bit, and then eat normally or slightly above for the rest of the week to keep your metabolism up. For example, check out up day/down day (JUDDD).

[ You asked about our stories, I lost weight using a no carb paleo diet of meat/fish/veg and put on some muscle with some exercise and lots of milk/cheese/yogurt. Still have some belly fat to lose but confident I could get rid of [some of] it with some disciplined dieting as described above. ]
