A big ACF shout out to one of our newest members, Saran P. In just over a month with ACF she has cut almost 5% bodyfat, lost 1" in her waist, and 1.5" in her hips. Her secret. . . she attends ACF consistently 3 x per week and she switched to a strict Paleo diet. And the best part of the whole thing, for all of you who get wrapped around body weight, she actually INCREASED her body weight by 1 pound! Nice work, Saran!
