Team KeRO get’s after it.

Most people have heard of the Pareto Principle without knowing exactly what it is.  The concept was named after an Italian economist who noted that 20% of the population in Italy owned 80% of the land.  It’s been applied in many areas but today we’re going to use it to talk about nutrition.  I often get asked what percent of weight loss is nutrition versus exercise.  Today I had an athlete tell me he’s lost 120lbs (on a medium frame) eating Paleo before he ever came to train at WCF.  A good friend of mine is now over the 100lb mark for weight loss after nearly a year of Paleo.  While my passion is performance most people’s first step towards fitness is first to lose fat and second to worry about their Fran time, one rep maxes, and snatch and clean & jerk.  80% of your weight loss progress is going to be nutrition.  20% will you working your butt off.  Simply stated:  You can’t outtrain a bad diet.  So if you’re doing the challenge stay the course.  You’ll see more progress in 5 weeks of strict Paleo than you will in 5 months of eating like crap.
