For the month I lost: 2 lbs, 1/2 inch on my waist, 1/2 inch on my thigh, 1/4 inch on my calf, 1/4 inch on my arm, and an inch on my hips. Again, similar to Paleo, I saw more loss in measurements than on the scale. I'm fine with that. 


Could I have been a little more hardcore and seen better results? Absolutely. I could have lowered my carbs even more. The first 2 weeks I didn't get the weights workouts in as I should have. Also, I could have done a little more low-level activity. But here's the thing: the way I went about this month was enjoyable. I didn't feel deprived, starving, worn out or any of the other things we can feel on 'diets'. I felt peaceful and well. AND I saw results. That's a win in my book.
