30 Day Challenge

Dear Dr. Chad and Brenda,

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My name is Donna McIntosh and I’m 64 years old from Cumming, Georgia

Before the 30-Day Challenge, I had hip surgery on my left hip and pain in my right hip. I anticipated having to have surgery on that hip as well. The pain I felt in both hips, even after surgery was so bad that I was having a hard time sleeping and working.

I would cry in the evening after work (I’m a swim school owner/instructor). The pain was worse at night, but never went away. I have had this pain for years. I had done physical therapy, steroid shots, pain management, and surgery. I did not look forward to more surgery as it did not relieve the pain. Because of the pain, exercising had been nil – even swimming hurt.

So when I read about the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge and its benefits, I thought I would give it a try. I decided that I was all in. I was committed. I had one day that I would say that I cheated.  My daughter is moving to Minneapolis, and we had a special dinner.  I had a small piece of cake, but everything else was strictly Paleo. Other than that day, I did not cheat at all.

I also did the 3-Minute flow program. I was actually afraid to start. After two-weeks I noticed that the pain in my hips was almost gone. I have had no pain at all in my hips since Day 18. I realized that I felt rested for the first time in years. I only lost 5 lbs., but I’m OK with that because I feel great. Today I have started a new exercise regimen. I expect over the next few weeks that I will begin to see greater weight loss.

I am a Paleo Secret believer. The daily emails were critical – just what I needed to stay motivated. You guys have changed my life. I sit here now with tears in my eyes as I think of how I felt on Day 1 and how I feel today on Day 30. I look forward to the next 30 days. I will keep you posted on my weight loss going forward.


Thank you so much,
Donna McIntosh

      The Paleo diet focuses on whole, real food consisting of primarily grass-fed meats, pastured eggs, wild-caught fish (or the highest quality animal proteins you can source), veggies, fruits, nuts/seeds and quality fats. This way of eating excludes processed food, sugar, grains, legumes, milk, cheese and toxic vegetables oils (canola oil, soybean, etc).

    Why is cheese not good?
