For all you paleo haters…..

….the proof is in the results. Here are some amazing before and after pictures of team Cabrera. We want everyone to know how well paleo works for us. Derek did Crossfit for a year, lost about 7 lbs, sure he was in better shape and stronger but he wasn’t leaner or faster. I myself had just had my second baby and was 40 lbs overweight. I weighed 185 lbs in that picture….yes I know that’s how much grown ass men weigh. I was out of shape and disgusted. I was determined not to be one of those women that pops out a couple of kids and gives up on life hence forth making everyone around me miserable. Derek started training me in our garage. Over a month I also got into better shape but I only lost 3 lbs, 182 wasn’t sitting well with me either.

I joined Crossfit Tacoma and immediately started Paleo, I talked Derek into following the diet with me too. He thought he need to lose about 10 lbs. In the end he lost 20 lbs and improved his performance at the gym. I lost 40 lbs and of course I improved immensely, I was a total train wreck when I walked through Tacoma’s door.

Family Trip to Mexico April 2010. Pre paleo, Quinn was 2 months old. Derek 225, Margi 185. Pic on the right 3 mos into paleo.

Derek calls this his “Mayan God Pose”. He makes me take a picture of him in this exact pose on every vacation we take. Picture on the right is 3 months into Paleo.

*According to Derek, “The ladies request this pose.”

This is a before and after pic I used for an online interview I did for a fitness blog. I apologize for the self portrait in the mirror (totally lame) but I needed to email a pic fast. Before weight 185 After weight 145.

We truly believe in Paleo. We have never felt better in our lives. Not only have our bodies changed but our workouts, sleep, mood, and overall quality of life has improved. We know it’s hard to start and stick to the paleo diet but we encourage everyone to challenge themselves. You will be happy you did it.

Remember to sign up for the nutrition seminar and clean eating challenge 🙂
