THE OHM 21-DAY PRIMAL TRANSFORMATION
This 21-Day Challenge will guide you through everything you need to build a foundation for optimal health that is sustainable for life.
This will be done with manageable action steps every day in the areas of Movement, Nutrition, and Lifestyle.
By the end of the 21-days, you can expect to be a “Fat Burning Beast!”. That’s right, it only takes that long (on average) to transform your metabolism from a sugar-burner to fat-burner.
That means you’ll see improvements in many areas of your life, including:
- Appetite: By eating nutrient-dense, primal-aligned meals, you will auto-regulate your appetite, which means increased satiety with fewer calories. As you reprogram your genes to utilize more energy from healthy fats than sugars, you’ll no longer need those frequent high-carb meals or quick sugar fixes to stay alive (i.e. no more hangry!)
- Blood markers: You can expect lower triglyceride and LDL (“bad cholesterol”) levels, higher HDL (“good cholesterol”) levels, lower blood pressure, normalized blood glucose, and significant improvements in other blood markers. (Share your results if you do test!)
- Body fat: Your body’s new ability to utilize fat (both stored and dietary) for energy will result in lower levels of body fat. Eat fat, burn fat.
- Cravings: Sugar cravings are just a reflection of a dependency on glucose (the research shows it’s one of the worst/most addicting drugs out there!) By using fat for energy, your cravings for sweets will diminish and even disappear.
- Digestion: Eliminating grains and other processed foods that contain antinutrients from your life will kickstart sluggish digestion, reduce bloating, and improve nutrient absorption. (Leaky gut? Yikes! No thanks!)
- Energy levels: Rather than rely on frequent consumption of glucose throughout the day, you will draw on your own stored body fat for steady, smooth energy – even if you skip a meal (or stay so productive that you forget to eat!). Think of it like logs on a fire vs. kindling.
- Sleep quality: Aligning your lifestyle with your circadian rhythm will promote easy, quality, lasting sleep that leaves you feeling energized in the morning – which means coffee is now optional. (Good-bye Groggy!).
- Stress levels: By avoiding the modern, toxic foods and chronic patterns of exercise, and crafting your lifestyle to be more natural/primal-aligned, you will reduce baseline stress levels and give yourself more tools and resources to deal with the stressors of modern life.
- Primal fitness: The Primal Blueprint Fitness is founded on basic, functional, full-body movements that prepare you to move through the environment with grace, strength, and agility.
- Among other things…
This doesn’t necessarily mean it will be easy (this is a challenge after all!), however, we will take baby steps the whole way to ease the transition.
When people ask you why you’re doing this Primal approach, here’s a good, light-hearted response that you can use:
“Despite the fact that counting calories, slogging away on the treadmill and eating nothing but Special K are so much fun, I’ve decided to do something that really works.” – Mark Sisson
Now, let’s move, eat, and live like humans!
