The update came in just after yesterday's story was published and it's a whopper – 16.8 pounds released thru day 21 of the Caveman Challenge. Chris's doctor will also be pleased with his reduced blood pressure readings which decreased from 134/71 to 122/65. Chris is hopeful his doctor will cut the bp medication as these readings continue to decline. I'm thrilled with all the reports. We're not even at the half-way mark and these volunteers are feeling great about their progress.
If you're curious how so many people are losing weight, it's not too late to join the challenge. There is no cost and the payoff is huge. I read a quote about how losing ten pounds can reduce the risk of getting diabetes by 60%. This is important to me because it runs in my family. Here's what the latest group of volunteers committed to in the Caveman 45-day Challenge:
- Concentrate on five foods – fruits, veggies, nuts, beans and seeds.
- Avoid processed foods or packages with artificial ingredients.
- Skip dairy.
- Limit alcohol to no more than two glasses of wine per day.
- Give up buns on your burgers, tortillas and chips.
