No more suspense…The winners of Paleo Challenge IV are JOE PORTER and JEN BUDDE!
Joe lost a total of 18 pounds in this challenge. Before January, Joe never watched what he ate – processed foods and beer was the norm. So, this challenge was exactly that…a big challenge. He jumped right in and his food log looked great the entire time. Joe built many new, healthy habits. He was consistent in the gym and is constantly racking up the PRs. Joe made his transformation with the help of his wife, Jessie. She lost seven pounds over the past eight weeks and also saw her performance skyrocket. The Porters are both rocking hot bodies!
This was Jen's second Paleo Challenge in a row. She won Paleo Challenge III and continued her weight loss journey through this contest. During this go-round, Jen lost 12 pounds, making her total since she started a tremendous 22 pounds! Like Joe, Jen had the support of her spouse during the Challenge. Greg, who was already in great shape when he started CrossFit, entered the Challenge as motivation for Jen. Eating Paleo and WODding at least five days per week has benefited them greatly, and they both look fantastic.
Congrats to both of our winners. You are splitting the $740 pot, so you each get $370 cash. You've earned it! (now stay on track or I'll post your before photos for the world to see!)
