Day 29
Fasted all day
7.30pm Chicken Nibbles marinated in Dijon, tamari, garlic, ginger and cream. Fried in butter mmmmmm! with Broccoli and zucchini topped with pesto.
3 pcs Lindt 85%

Day 30 Last day of challenge weigh in 71.3kg!
So on the final day of the challenge I'm finally feeling back to my complete normal self after being sick for so long. I went to the gym at 7.30am and did an easy 40min upper body workout. Felt really great being back!
11.45am Leftover Chicken Nibbles
6.30pm Beef Tataki with large salad (see photo), a little too much green and blacks 85% chocolate, seriously it's just too smooth!!

So my 30 day challenge has come to an end! My goals were:

1. Continue Losing body fat - 3kgs / 6.6lbs and my goal was to lose 5lbs so I did really well.

2. Increase strength - this one really suffered because I was sick and couldn't go to the gym! This something I will continue to work at.

3. Eat more vegies - think I did pretty well with this one

4. One 24hr fast a week - totally got this one sorted, even two 24hr fasts in a week, it's getting easier and eaiser to fast the more I do it.

The life long challenge never really ends and it's a journey I will be on for life because I'm determined to keep this weight off and keep living healthy! Hopefully some of you have been inspired and it sounds like my menus are giving you all some good ideas.


  1. Awesome results! I'm still working on the fasting thing. I just can't imagine going a whole day without food-it's purely psychological, I know:) If you don't mind me asking, how much more weight do you intend to lose (since you already look great:)?

  2. Hey Primal Mama, Yeah it definately is psychological and I had that issue to begin with. It does get easier, I just keep myself busy working and plan myself a super yummy dinner for that night.

    I don't mind you asking and thank you!! I'm getting that question a lot at the moment. I don't have a specific 'weight' I want to reach but more so changing my body composition to more muscle and less fatso. So with that in mind I'll probably aim for around 60-65kgs give or take so long as I look good naked!

  3. Great results.

    It would be great to look good naked or for starters to look good in a pair of slim jeans and t-shirt (no bumpy bits in sight)! That's what I'm aiming for first.

    You look great in your jeans at 72kg - I'd say 65kg may be as low as you need to go. But as you said what's important is how you look and not the scale.

  4. thats the tastiest looking salad i have ever seen. hands down.

  5. Oh thanks Rachel, it sure is, it's a favourite around here :)

  6. hey hun! i just found your blog yOur PIC TRANSFORMATIONS ARE ASTOUNDING!!! your lookin good keep it up!

  7. Hi Dollface - read your testimonial on MDA. What a great story! So glad you found the paleo way! Just a note, you will notice you don't get sick as much after adopting this. I haven't been "sick" in over a year! If I feel something coming on I drink the miracle tea -- garlic water (steep a few cloves in water), coconut oil, lemon, honey to taste. It really is a miracle.
    Great to follow you!!

  8. Hey AT22, Thanks :) I came across your great blogs while searching last years primal challenge!

    I don't pick up little bugs like I used to but I did get hit with a nasty flu. Will have to try the Miracle tea if I come across it again.

    I like that your doing a high fat experiment, it gives me way more energy and less hunger.
