So this quick post is to fulfill a request made by a couple of female readers (Jess & Sio) that my partner in crime for this go of the Whole 30 post her stats. Surprisingly enough, I didn’t have to twist her arm as much as I thought I would, and she was happy to share her numbers with me (and thus with you…don’t worry I told her I was going to put this on here).
But first a little bio…
Sarah is a 24-yr. old student working on receiving her doctorate at MCV… and she is a recovering P90x-aholic.
I say was because, just as she was beginning to stop using some of the stupid, yet mildly entertaining, catch phrases of the cult leader Tony Horton, and speak and act like a normal human being… she relapsed. The sad truth of it is, not only did she relapse, but she fell into an even worse drug: the cardio-intensive spin-off from P90x known as “Insanity”.
All jokes aside, having seen some of the Insanity series, it looks 100% legit as a vehicle to making you a cardio-machine, and Sarah is currently a little over halfway through the 60-day program.
Previous to the Whole 30, Sarah has been eating relatively “healthy” by most standards. While she will sometimes eat Paleo-compliant meals, sugar, grain, and dairy have all been a large part of her diet up until this point.
Enter pure Paleo goodness from October 31st until Thanksgiving to rock her world. As I stated above, she was kind enough to agree to share her stats to let you know how the Paleo-ness affects a physically active female. So here you go:
At the beginning of the Whole 30: 160lbs @ 21.8% body fat (very healthy levels for a female)
I’m just as interested as you to see how her body reacts to the naturally low carb diet, and I know she’s super stoked. We’ll keep you posted as things progress.
