    Good article on overcoming obesity and severe joint pain by moving from a semi-vegetarian diet to Paleo.

    Any former vegetarians out there have a similar experience?

  2. Mikey B.

    Brian, are the WODs in addition to or part of the regular PCF programing?

  3. Brian PCF

    Mikey, we do the Wods on the day of the kick off.

    Can we submit our pix or do we have to disrobe in front of a cast of thousands ala Ben Hur?

  5. Brian PCF

    @Christy – I would much rather get photos submitted by the individual, only issue is that some of them are god awful. I’ll meditate on this.

    Brian – I was a vegetarian for 14 months. Coincidentally, that is during the time I went to physical therapy for my knees. I began eliminating foods this past August, but started a strict Paleo lifestyle in November. I can already notice a difference.

    Are the two mandatory WODs the two listed above? Or are there more?

    Also, for the before and after pictures, how far down will one be required to disrobe?

  7. Brian PCF

    @Danielle – good for you making the move from veggie to Paleo. Veg is a death sentence.

    The WODs will take place at the kick off and finale meetings.

    The pics will be whatever you want to show. Recommendation is swim suit or sports bra/shorts for gals. If you don’t want to do that, that’s ok, but it will be hard to give you a good score on the B/A pics if we can’t see what you looked like before.

    We’re also debating the idea of having you guys take your own pics at home and emailing them to me. More to follow on that.

    Brian- just my .02. I may be unusual in that I dont have the same modesty issues, but the picture process has not bothered me in the past, and it’s a lot easier than figuring out how to take a good picture on my cell phone. If you do have pics taken at home, I hope you keep the option of taking pictures at the kickoff.

    Hi Brian,
    Will we be able to sign up for a time slot for the kick-off WOD on Sat Jan 5? I ask because I would like to come in for my time slot, WOD, and get on with my day. Altho I love the place and the people, being at the box for ~4 hours is not the best use of my Saturday. ;)

  10. Brian PCF

    @Christy – WODs are during the challenge. Everyone will do them together in heats.

  11. Christy0530

    Gotcha now, thanks Brian. I thought it was 1 WOD; now I see it is 3 WODs. :)
