Age: 64,
Location: Battle Ground, WA,

I lost 8 lbs and 5″ during the 30-Day Challenge!

I am so happy that I found Chad, Brenda and the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge. My health had been deteriorating for years due to stress and poor eating while traditional medical community just kept referring me to one specialist after another. Each of these specialists was sure that if I added their drug of choice, I would feel much better – I didn’t!

My husband and I were both retired, planning to have an active life. We thought I just needed time to overcome the results of the stressful work life I had left behind in order to pick up my pace. Wrong! I kept slowing down further! I couldn’t breathe well. I was getting less and less flexible and most joints hurt.

I finally stopped all drugs except thyroid, met a Naturopath who helped with digestive issues enough that I started thinking about removing all added sugar from my diet. I was learning how addictive and dangerous sugar is to our bodies so I knew I needed a plan to be successful. I have tried many different diet/eating plans over the years as I gained weight and had a library full of books that did not work for me.

During my research to detox sugar, I discovered how easy that might be with the awesome support of the entire Paleo Secret plan and staff. The daily inspirational and motivational emails and full access to the FB community of current and previous members of the plan was invaluable! The cost of the plan initially was the deciding factor to give it a try. A one time nominal charge for all of that support that I could have easily spent on just one meal! I am so glad I did not decide to detox from sugar and processed foods alone!

During those 30 days, I learned a new way of looking at preparing food. I love creating and cooking meals for us now. I rarely even use a recipe. I have gone back to using our local gym instead of just paying for it and I have joined a yoga class twice a week. Life is good!

I intend to continue with the new Paleo eating lifestyle I have put into place and to be a part of the Paleo Secret FB group to help support other members as well as myself well into the future.

 

Thank you, Paleo Secret Team!

My husband and I have just completed the 30-Day Challenge and have enjoyed, yes enjoyed the journey!

We have been married 43 years and so I had no doubt that we could do it together. He is 64 and lost 8 lbs and a significant amount of gut. I am 65 and lost 9 lbs and went from significant muffin top, more like mushroom cloud to very small muffin top.

He feels he sleeps better. I know his snoring is so much better (thank you)!

People all around us have had the flu and we have remained healthy. I can say, on a topic important to me, my digestion is under much better control! For me this is huge!!

We plan on continuing the Paleo diet the rest of our lives so I am hoping for more health improvements along the way. My husband had an office visit with his doctor at about day 12 and had already lost weight and had subtle improvements in his lab work. His doctor was very impressed.

All in all, this has been an awesome experience. I love all my new friends on the Paleo Secret Facebook page and will definitely keep that a part of my life.

Brenda and Chad,

Thank you for this program. The emails and FB page made is easy to stay focused.

I began this challenge with the philosophy that I did not want to eat certain foods, not that I could not have them. I think that really helped me.

I am 62 years old. My reason for joining was to feel better. I have truly not felt well for over 10 years. Nothing specifically wrong, just always felt blah. My blood work always came back ok, so the doctor never had any ideas other than telling me to lose weight.

I am 5′ 1″ tall. I began the challenge at 172 lbs. I wear size 14. I have lost 7lbs. I am still in my 14 jeans, but they are much looser! I have also lost 3 inches.  I followed the plan fairly well.

I have had degenerating lumbar discs for 25 years. Diagnosed with thoracic facet syndrome 6 years ago. I have severe tendonitis from working on computers for 30 years. I used to wake up very stiff and painful. My hands would fall asleep at night. I can get up in the morning without pain, just very slight stiffness. My hands are no longer numb when I wake up.

I am noticing many “little” improvements. I used to get headaches from eyestrain using my IPhone.  I realized yesterday that I have not had that problem recently.  I also now have no problem looking up from the IPhone to the TV. It used to take a while to focus from a close distance.  My mind used to be “foggy”, especially when I was tired.  I can focus much better now.

The absolute best improvement has been my energy level. I used to run errands for a few hours and come home so tired that I would just collapse onto the sofa. I would be too tired to unload the car or put things up. Now, I do come home tired.  But I can sit down for 30 minutes, then get up and take care of things!  I get tired, but I am not totally drained!!

I will continue to eat primarily Paleo. I may experiment a bit to see what foods really triggered my problems.

 

Thank you so very much!
Nancy G

Overall I would give this a thumbs-up and a big smile. I did not lose any weight but I have a marked decrease in joint pain of my hands, knees & shoulder. I assume that is a decline in inflammation of the joints and that was one of my goals.

I have always been active in a variety of sports and over the years the injuries that come & go leave a legacy of scar tissue, arthritis, & general pain. I am a regular user of advil because of that, so another goal was to eliminate taking them so often and that is beginning to happen.

When I go for my next blood profile, it  will be another test of how well this works on cholesterol  numbers. I have been on the high side (230) for several years & because of my high number on the good side, I have avoided statins. Hence the most important reason I am trying this way of eating.

All of the fat goes against everything I’ve ever read about heart diets but admittedly the coconut oil, Golden Milk, & pastured meat, all seem to agree with me. I will continue to eat this way for another 30 days & reevaluate at that time, because I would like to add some things back in to my diet, like cheese and ancient grains, that I really miss. Thanks for the emails too!

I’m Kristi, age 40 from Maine. I lost a total of 14 pounds and 5 inches off my waist during my 30-Day Challenge!

I have my endless supply of energy back and I feel great! I couldn’t believe how my digestive issues had vanished since week one of the challenge. Turns out the way I used to eat did not agree with me and I’m not going back to eating that way.

I plan on eating mostly Paleo as a lifestyle from now on. My clothes fit better and I even went down a pant size. I no longer have a muffin top and I’m pretty stoked about it! I also have noticed an improvement in my skin and lots of people tell me I look much younger than I am.

I’m so glad I did this. It’s changed my life.

Brenda and Chad,

I did not know what to expect from a Paleo lifestyle or your guided 30-Day challenge – but both greatly exceeded my expectations!!!!! I could not be happier that I am on this journey.

I have been exhausted for years from getting up 2-3 times per night (yes, per night) due to my daughter’s night terror. Luckily, when it got really bad, I was able to take some time off of work. However, it is taking years to recover from the constant exhaustion and I desperately needed an energy reset to get back close to feeling normal.

I’m happy to say that I have found that with the Paleo lifestyle. Last Sunday, I was able to make it through the day – busy, productive and happy without any tiredness. A whole day!!! First time in 7 years!! I cannot believe what I was able to get done with finally having a normal energy level.

Beyond that, the weight loss (7 pounds in the 30 days) is wonderful and I feel skinnier inside with less bloating and no ‘blah’ feeling. Incredible!!!

I am having fun trying new recipes and foods and enjoy being proud of what I am putting in my body. Everything I thought I would miss is a pittance compared to how good I feel without it.

Your guidance, insight, personal touch and education set just the right pace for the 30 days.

I am so happy that I found you and credit your program for increasing my success in getting healthy. I looked forward to each email and all of the information was easy to apply.

I can’t thank you enough. I’m off to finish a cup of golden milk from your recipe and get a good night’s sleep!

Dear Dr. Brenda and Dr. Chad,

Your 30-Day challenge is well thought out and I am grateful for your guidance and daily support over these past 30 days.

I just turned 69 and knew the many various efforts I made over 25+ years to eat better and be healthier was not completely working. Specifically, each year I had a net gain of about 3 pounds and was before starting the challenge 75-80 pounds overweight.

Eating a grass-fed, hormone-free, antibiotic-free fatty lamb chop seemed so contrary to what I had always been told that I felt somewhat guilty eating it – like I was getting away with something. Yet the idea of high-quality protein and fat, low-carb, modest fruit and nuts and seeds were all foods I naturally liked.

I had shifted my thinking to real food – mostly plants – but could now add protein and fat for complete hunger satisfaction without the sugar craving. I was able to ignore the candy bar impulse at the grocery checkout and that was the real indicator for me that I could reverse the downward spiral I was on. Dense, nutritional foods allowing a steady fat burn in my body –  emotionally and mentally –  was right for me.

Now I feel like I know a great secret that has been staring me in the face amidst so much conflicting information over these many years and failed attempts.

It definitely didn’t start out easy, but the day I threw out or gave away all that was not Paleo in my kitchen was a huge psychological barrier that left me free to hit the reset button. Like after many years on the ocean reaching a new land, then burning the boat so that the option of going back was not an option any more.

I can say for me this path is verifiable and TRUE. My whole being is responding positively and to get back to right living a real blessing.

I can’t go back, that ship is gone and I truly feel I am on solid ground.

Warmest personal regards,
Paul K

Hi, I’m Annie. I’m a 38-year-old single, working Mom. My life has been a weight gain/loss rollercoaster… taking my emotional health up and down with it. I recently completed the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge and I can’t say enough positive things about this experience!

I didn’t lose a dramatic amount of weight – only 6 pounds – but I feel better. And best of all, I feel 100% positive that this is the lifestyle that will get me to all my health, physical and mental, goals! It’s even working for my kids as well. I feel confident that the Paleo Diet, along with some emotional lifestyle changes I’m making, will bring an end to that terrible rollercoaster ride I’ve been on all my life.

I feel this Challenge came to me at the right time and spoke to me in the exact way I needed. I’m taking charge of every aspect of my life now and the Paleo Secret has been a North Star for my journey!

 

Thank you!

My name is Shari D. and I lost 8 pounds, 1.5 inches off my waist, 1 inch off each thigh and 1 inch off my hips on the Paleo Secret 30-Day Challenge.

I feel better! I have more energy, less arthritic pain, more clarity in thinking and a more positive attitude – to mention, my jeans fit better!

I am enjoying eating more and I am also trying to get my husband onboard. The biggest challenge for me is keeping enough bacon in the house Ha Ha. I love that if I keep eating along these Paleo guidelines, I will never have the chance of getting fat again.

I have always wanted to look my best. I am a retired hairstylist and appearance to me was always extremely important.

I have really enjoyed the emails on the 30-Day Challenge and have saved them all. I also love the videos you have made and the Facebook group – I check it almost every day! Chad and Brenda are very genuine and caring and I hope they can reach many more people as time goes by.

Thank you so much for all of the sincere help and caring interest you have provided. Your staff is very efficient and always responded quickly to any questions that I had. If there were ever a Paleo Secret member reunion somewhere I would love to be there!

Catherine Testimonial

March 2nd, 2017 | Testimonials

Hi, my name is Catherine. I am 64 years old, I live in Harrison, NJ, and on February 11, 2017, I finished my 30-Day challenge.  I took the challenge because my daughter is getting married in October, I am over weight, and tired of looking and feeling unhealthy.

At 5’5″ my starting weight was 196. At the end of the challenge I weighted 183. I am going to continue this challenge as my goal is to say goodbye to 20 more pounds. With 13 lbs gone there is a noticeable reduction in my belly fat.

In addition to weight loss, my left ankle doesn’t swell anymore, digestive issues I’ve had for years with IBS are greatly reduced, and there is much less stiffness in my joints.

I will be making an appointment with my doctor soon to have blood work done and discuss going off meds I take for high cholesterol and triglycerides. She always tells me to watch my carb intake. Now that I’ve eliminated the bad carbs I’m confident future blood work will reveal good results.

There is no way I’m going back to the way I use to eat. The lifestyle changes I’ve made in diet and exercise are my insurance to staying as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

Thank you Chad and Brenda for giving me the tools, support and encouragement I need to take this journey.
