You can sprint, play, lift weights and then take two or three days off to rest or just go for a walk, and you'll be fine! It's amazing! I've dropped 8lbs in three months following his eating plan and having fun. My workouts right now consist of about 4 sprints and walking every other day...takes about 10-15 minutes, and I'm done!

Now I do want to be more tone, so I'm going to add in weightlifting for fun. However, it is no longer a necessity to me to lose weight faster...push myself harder to "burn the fat". I don't have to worry about injuries because I can go at my own pace. My body knows how to burn fat now without a lot of chronic cardio.

But like I said, if you want max results, you need to follow his eating plan. Basically whole unprocessed foods...meat/veggies/nuts/seeds/some fruit/fats like butter, coconut oil, olive oil, bacon grease. No grains. Grains are the worst...this includes rice and corn.

Trust me, though, after a week you won't ever miss them. The cravings go away, and you're just happy and healthy.
I've been on a primal/paleo diet for the past 6-8 weeks and I was completely skeptical... at first. I'm convinced now that this is the way I will be eating from now on. I didn't realize how grains and processed foods made me feel until I gave them up. Now when I slip up and have grains (like when I was at the Mets baseball stadium with no good food options) I definitely feel the effects later (TMI warning: can anyone say massive gloating and gas!?)

I've gotten much better with my sweets too... I still occasionally get cravings but they're practically 70% reduced. The longer the intervals are between sweets, the longer I can go without cravings....and I NEVER thought this would happen

Now the fitness part, I'm working on it. I walk around the hospital all day 5 days a week so I'm getting some cardio but my main goal is to tone up. Hope everyone is having success and seeing some results!
