The 12-Week Total Body Transformation: Fact or Fiction?

What Makes Paleo Power Meals Different

Blueberry Pancakes (Cooking For 2)
I never expect much to be in Texas. Way too many people trying to make a buck off of others. No, not your average birthday cake, it was an intense brownie cake with a cookie bottom and cookies on the side. Above all have fun with it and get better everyday. It has hints of the fruits it boasts about, without them actually being present. Fairly gross but at least we could finish it. What'd you say, darlin'?

You can opt for one-time orders or set recurring orders and receive your favorite meals every week. You can order individual breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and sides or order in bulk. You can order as many different items as you wish and as many packages of each as you need.

It is completely up to you. The menu is rich and focuses on meat, fish, and healthy veggies, with hardly any grains or dairy and no legumes. The meat is free range and grass fed and the seafood and veggies are sustainably grown and harvested. There are no added sugars, processed foods or any sort of additives that would prevent you from becoming your healthiest and fittest self.

Paleo Power Meals is brought to you by a crossfitter who discovered an effective way to get in shape and maximize the results of workouts. By combining crossfit or a similar form of exercise with professionally prepared Paleo meals, you can boost your energy, transform your body, and feel and look much better. Plus, you do not have to invest any time into planning and cooking your meals and counting your calories. Nearly all the meals on the menu are Paleo meals, but they are suitable for other diets as well.

You can enjoy a vast majority of them while on the Whole30 program or ketogenic diet. The great news is that the meals are also free from gluten.

You can rely on Paleo Power Meals to provide you with every meal of the day and cover all your dietary needs. The dishes come in ample portions, so they are sure to keep you full until your next meal and eliminate the need for some extra snacks.

The menu includes over 50 delicious options, conveniently divided into several categories, including breakfasts, lunches, dinners, sides, non-Paleo sides, and bulk menu items. All individual dishes come in 1-serving packages and bulk items come in 1 lb. At all times, there are around half a dozen breakfasts to choose from, all of them high in protein and incredibly satisfying. The items include the likes of bacon and egg muffin, burrito-less scramble, sweet potato hash browns, and applewood smoked bacon.

Lunches feature a lovely balance between fresh, colorful veggies and proteins. Most of them are classic chicken dishes like chicken Milanese over arugula, grilled chicken strips, and chicken Florentine. Dinner items are the most numerous, with over a dozen of options at your disposal. They are more creative than lunch items, rich in both nutrients and proteins, and feature all kinds of meat and fish.

You can enjoy BBQ pulled chicken, chicken and broccoli over cauliflower rice, grass-fed steak tips with grilled vegetables, spaghetti squash Bolognese, pulled pork, herb-crusted salmon, and many other delicious items. The company also offers a variety of tasty vegetable sides, including sweet potato French fries, spiralized zucchini and summer squash, sautéed Brussels sprouts, and sweet potato pancakes. Non-Paleo sides are less numerous and mostly focus on rice. They include such innovative dishes like basmati rice with mushrooms and spinach or brown rice with dried cranberries and scallions.

And some of the differences are rather profound. Now, are those people going to lose 40 pounds or gain 15 pounds of muscle in 12 weeks?

And those pictures might be legit. But from the looks of things, those people lost pounds of weight or more per WEEK. The only way to do that is an extremely low-caloric intake on top of brutal physical exercise. Not many can do it. A lot of muscle has been lost as well. Real week progress is more subtle.

And if you string together 12 weeks, then another 12 weeks, then another 12 weeks, pretty soon fitness becomes what you do……………. My clients, at the end of their 12 weeks, sometimes are ready to be displayed on the internet, but sometimes they are not.

But no matter their current stage, if one of them wants their progress to be shown, then dammit, so be it.

One of my clients just finishing up his 12 weeks with me was recently highlighted on the client transformation page.

After all, 40 out of those 52 weeks were spent either on his own or with another coach. When prospective clients send me an email, often times I have to set some realistic goals for them. Buy P90x, get on Nutrisystem. If you can make it the full 90 days, I promise you will lose 30 pounds. I thought his perspective could benefit others. His waistline has been reduced by a full 5 inches. My questions are bolded and his answers are italicized.

I have underlined the portions that really struck a chord with me. Congratulations on the phenomenal transformation. Your one-year pictures, especially, are remarkable. What initially caused you to decide to make a change in your life? The first thing I did was reach out to a buddy of mine from college who was a trainer for the Kansas City Royals baseball team.

He gave me some initial guidance when it came to nutrition, but the main thing he did was provide support and hold me accountable. He would text me everyday to see how my diet was going and give me advice. When you decided you needed to make a change, you chose heavy barbell lifting as the means to accomplish that. What made you decide to go this path?

Did you try other methods? If so, how did they work for you compared with heavy barbell lifting? I had zero weightlifting experience before last year and most of my workouts in the past had consisted of running and bodyweight exercises.

So when I hired this trainer and we sat down to talk about my goal, I told him I wanted to lose weight and do Crossfit. At first, we did all kinds of exercises just to get me moving and to build some base strength, while learning good technique for those main lifts. At that time everyday was different, sometimes I would be doing tire flips and pushing sleds, other times would be Olympic lifts, and others would be pushing my limits with the major lifts.

At that point I dropped Crossfit idea, stopped Olympic lifting for the most part, and started lifting heavy on the main lifts. Both my weight loss and lifting progress started to increase pretty rapidly after I made this change.

I still train the Olympic lifts occasionally, but it is more for fun and for a change of pace than anything. My wife is convinced now too. She started lifting with me and has been amazed at the changes she is seeing. How important has your diet been in this process? Can you relate to us any alterations or difficulties you had this past year with your diet? Diet is THE most important part of the process. Tracking macros is flexible because you can pretty much eat whatever you want as long as you hit your Protein, Carb, and Fat numbers.

Learning that a carb is a carb was a big part of my success. Eating a huge lunch and dinner while dieting was so much more satisfying than eating three smaller meals. On top of that, I noticed that my energy levels were way up once I started practicing IF. The key is to focus on one day at a time. If you hit your macros 6 days out of the week you will probably get the results you are looking for.
