So I’ve made it through 21 days of “clean” Paleo-ish Crossfit-eating! Yay! I’ve lost 13 lbs since my weigh-in on day 1. I also measure about 2 inches less around my waist and 2 inches around my buttocks. I feel great and I’m so glad I did it.
I had a few cheat meals and definitely noticed the change in water weight when carbs are cut or added back. Read about why this happens here: Understanding Body Weight and Glycogen Depletion. Although a good portion of initial weight loss is from water stored with glycogen, continuing on a healthy life path will lead to fat loss and muscle gain with time and dedication.
But the bottom line is: if you’re on the fence about making healthy changes, it’s sooo worth it!
