CROSSFIT & PALEO - 28 DAY CHALLENGE
1st FEB to 28th FEB … Find out more
(This is an in-club challenge for CrossFit Auckland Members)
The Paleolithic diet is eating a diet aligned with our genetic makeup. It eliminates modern foods that are causing numerous health issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure, digestive problems and auto-immune disease. This way of eating is at the heart of CrossFit nutrition principles.
We invite you to take on this personal challenge and eat a paleolithic/primal diet for 30 days to see what difference it could make to your health, performance and waistline.
Numerous studies and our own client results have shown Paleo eating to be the best:
- It improves all the markers of aging and inflammation (blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and C reactive protein).
- Auto-immune conditions, such as arthritis, lupus, asthma and multiple sclerosis are reduced or put into remission.
- Skin problems like acne, rocacea, psoriasis and eczema disappear or reduce.
- It is the easiest way to control appetite, eliminate cravings and lose body fat.
- It maximises athletic performance and speeds recovery after exercise.
- It heals the gut and reverses gut issues like reflux, indigestion, bloating, and IBS.
- No more low energy or brain fog.

30 DAY PALEO TESTIMONIALS
Weight loss: 3kg
I wanted an easy diet plan that allowed me to eat without measuring my food or worrying about what time of the day I should eat or counting calories.
After the first meeting I was shocked with some of the information and took it all on board. I talked with some people who work and study within the science field and they all told me to be careful and thoroughly research and check the academics of this type of programme. So I did, and I also read The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf. The more I researched the more I came to the conclusion that the science behind Paleo is more substantial and more sound than most other sciences but it is not readily advertised. Then I read a phrase in The Paleo Solution that made sense. Try it for 30 days, there is nothing to lose, you either get healthy and live better, or nothing changes and you go back to the way you were living and you only lose a month of your life. So I thought I might as well give it a go.
I am amazed at the results that have happened over the course of 30 days. I have more energy which has enabled me to increase my intensity while training. My fitness overall has improved and my recovery is much faster. I am feeling better and the fat is falling off me.
I found that I could be healthy and lean without having to systematically time my eating and measure my food. By removing some “bad” foods such as grains, I could eat all the foods I really love in abundance and still achieve my desired results. All by eating the way our bodies are genetically programmed.

When I first started the 30 Day Paleo Challenge I was a bit hesitant in the fact that I had to give up bread, and thought to myself this is going to be way too hard. I decided to keep strict to the diet for at least a week to see if I could manage it. I was surprised that not only did I keep to it I actually lost 2kg in weight. I carried on for the rest of the challenge and had more energy and determination to succeed than I thought I would. It is a big change but the body seems to adjust and you reap the benefits.
At the end of the challenge I was even more surprised to find I had lost another 2kg (so 4kg altogether) and my girth measurements had reduced as follows:
- Largest part of thigh 2 ½ inches (6.5cm) on each leg
- Waist 2 inches (5cm)
I was ecstatic with the results and would fully recommend Paleo not only for fat loss but also for well being.
Weight loss: 6.7kg
Hips: lost 12cm
Waist: lost 5cm
Paleo eating has totally transformed the way I think about food and eating. Once I got my head around what you I should and shouldn’t have it was really easy to make good choices. Even though there is a lot of information to take on board, having an understanding of how your body works and the effects of what you eat has on you (over and above just the usual getting fat and having a heart attack) was a huge help. Understanding why you feel tired, hungry, bloated etc. and being able to relate that to when and what you were eating made sense to me.
I had always thought I had eaten relatively healthy and just struggled with eating too much. I was wrong. By eating the Paleo way the fat is steadily dropping off and I am feeling so good overall. My chronic back pain has dramatically reduced during this challenge.
Whilst I was on Paleo I went through an incredibly stressful time which was very hard to reduce or change. I still made improvements in my wellbeing through this. Looking back I really think that without Paleo and CrossFit Auckland I would have really struggled to get through it all in one piece!
The understanding I had of myself prior to Paleo eating made being healthy and losing fat a bit like trying to go for a run in wooden clogs, painful. So thanks Julianne, I have made a change for life.

My hubby and I have both followed the eating plan and in the month he has lost a whopping 7kgs! I am so happy he has lost all the weight as he was really struggling to lose the weight and had no real will power to stick to any eating plan or diet. The paleo way of eating totally agreed with him as he is a hunter in his thinking pattern for food so was very happy to up the protein, and cut down on refined carbs.
I loved the increase in veggies and have got used to not as many refined carbs and find I don’t miss them as much as I thought I would. I feel now that this is the way to eat as I have noticed I don’t get any issues with bloating or wind in my stomach. I have definitely dropped weight and lost centimeters all over. I am very happy about this! My clothes are looser and this has only happened since doing the paleo eating plan. I was doing gym before and was actually gaining weight, since doing the paleo the weight started dropping off me.
I don’t have as many headaches as I used to. For the first time in years I did not have period pain or tender breasts at that time of the month.
Mental focus is a lot better than it was before. Not so much brain fog. My sleeping pattern has improved. I used to wake and not get back to sleep – that is not happening now. Energy is up as well which is fantastic with me being a mother to two children.
I like the fact that you (Julianne) have been available at all times to respond to questions should we have any. It makes it less scary to go ahead with the eating plan as you have the peace of mind that help is at hand almost instantaneously!
Body Composition Vs. Weight on Scales
Your weight on the scales is a total measurement of Lean Muscle, Bone and Adipose Tissue (Fat). People tracking fat loss (incorrectly termed weight loss), sometimes become confused when their weight on the scales increases or stays relatively the same despite being involved in regular exercise.
Your ultimate goal is to increase Lean Muscle (your calorie/energy burning machine), and reduce Body Fat. Because muscle weighs more than fat, weight on the scales is NOT an indication of FAT loss.
Members of our CrossFit Auckland Women program and I AM CROSSFIT have body composition measurements taken at the beginning and completion of their 8 week programs. We also offer Body Composition as a private session.
