This is one hundred and fifty pull-ups and burpees.  I hope it is clear by now that we will not make everyone do all three-hundred reps!   However, you may be surprised at how many reps you can do if you give yourself a chance.

We have a new crop of beginners in the On-Ramp class and they had a fun time tonight!  They are going to log all their food for 30 days as part of the On-Ramp curriculum.  We are encouraging them to eat meat, vegetables, fruits and nuts, some starch, no sugar - just real food without highly processed junk.  When we take a tiny grain, breed it to be super productive with extra proteins, grind it up in a powder, mix it with sugar and conditioners (?), and then bake it and wrap it in plastic, we have highly processed junk! 

The rest of us could try this too.  See what it's doing for James and read about his experience logging his food and doing CrossFit like he means it here but don't let any children read over your shoulder.  Like Robb Wolf says, hookers and cocaine will still be there after thirty days if it doesn't work out.

"At some point, probably one of those annoying 30 day challenges, Mike D decided to try the Paleo diet, and I decided not to. Two weeks in I was consistently beating Mike, and I did what I do in those situations: I laughed derisively and suggested he eat a few bowls of oatmeal. But at the three and four week marks, Mike was outperforming me consistently. Like everyone his body just needed a few weeks to adapt to metabolizing fat, aka diesel fuel, instead of sugar, and then he was off to the races.

I was at first reluctant to follow Mike because I thought the Paleo diet was both fanatical and faddish. Who the **** doesn't eat donuts?
