In October, the Tahoe Oral Surgery and Implant Center team embraced a challenge: to completely rethink the way they eat. Under the guidance of nutritionist, Lisa Fligor of New Plate Nutrition, our enthusiastic team of 8 (Dan and Sonja Martin included) ate a strict Paleo diet for 30 days of no sugar/sweeteners, no dairy, no grains, no alcohol and no caffeine.
They began reading food labels in a new way (why IS sugar added to chicken breasts?) and had fun swapping new recipes. Though healthy eating was the primary goal of the challenge, the challenge presented an additional benefit: the group lost a combined 77 pounds!
