Personally, I was glad not to have to make the selections, as there were several other members who I thought could just as easily been in any the top 3 positions. I cannot believe how much of a difference everyone made in 6 weeks. Just think, that is only 42 days or so of eliminating or reducing simple carbs, sugar, and bad fat, and increasing protein, complex carbohydrates, and good fat. I am of the opinion that anyone who stays Paleo — or close to it — for a month will not revert back to their old way of eating. You just don’t feel good after a bad meal, and realize it is not worth it. “You can’t out-train a bad diet”. If the winners do not object, we would like permission to post their Before/After pics on our website. Also, anyone else who participated and would not mind, we would like to use those photos also. Like I said, anybody could have won based on the great results.
