    HC – Maybe this time I’ll beat you with weight loss Pharoah, you beat me by less than a pound last time.

    Hey what are some other names for what this style of eating (hopefully will be more than a diet) is called? Paleo? I need to do some research to find out what foods ARE allowed so I can determine if this is something I can commit to or not…. The biggest kick in the teeth is the no pizza…closely followed by red meat, pork, and sweets. I didn’t see any strikes against beer….

    T-claps to Pharaoh for stepping up to Q this.

    Welcome everyone! I am on MyFitnessPal as F3Pharaoh. I am excited that we are doing this healthy eating challenge again as I found it quite beneficial last year.

    I’m an HC on this, we’ll see how long I can last. I figure I can live off of coffee and beer for at least a month… (Cinder Block)

    Hey Guys! So glad to see this happening! I know that I am just getting back into F3 but I have already seen results from basic concepts like this (7 pounds down already). The key thing to this is just consistency. We can all do ANYTHING for 6 weeks!

    I am getting married on October 3rd and I have to get down to my Calvin Klein model physique so I am definitely a HC.

    If you guys need any help with this, I have a lot of clients that come to me at the gym with the same concern….what can I substitute, what is okay, why are these bad? We are a community of brothers here to all help each other so let’s get these pounds off!

    I have been in talks with Dingo about getting a community F3 “bioelectrical impeadance” device. What it does is it sends small signals through your body to measure body fat %. We are definitely going to have a time for everyone to get measured so that we can track, not only pounds lost, but body fat % lost too!

    Let’s get it men! As one!
