2-7-15 2015 Nutrition Challenge

whole 30Our nutrition challenge (PR Your Life!) will begin on Monday, February 9th. We are going to follow the Whole30 for 30 days, then reintroduce some foods back in after 30 days.

If you are considering participating in the challenge, the number one secret to success is planning, and lots of it! You need to be prepared with good, quality, Whole30 foods at all times. In fact, you should have foods like individual packets of almond butter stashed in your desk, glove compartment, your purse so you are prepared for anything. You also need to be prepared when it comes to meal time.

Sitting down and creating a meal plan (including all three meals and a snack/preWO/postWO meal) will guarantee that you never have to go through any difficulty when you’re caught looking for something.

Picture a Saturday evening. You didn’t make it to the store that day like you planned, so you run to the deep freeze praying you have something stashed away. You open the freezer and find nothing but frozen pizzas. You sink to the floor, mentally and emotionally battling it out, nearly in tears from hunger and the incredible job your mind is doing in rationalizing eating the frozen pizza.

You drag yourself off the floor and into bed at 7:00 pm because you just can’t deal with the situation or handle the bright lights and people at the grocery store. Just, don’t ever get there.

There are plenty of options out there for meal plans out there. Here are a few I found with a simple Google search. Option 1HERE Option 2HERE and there are many other options out there.  Just search Whole 30 Meal Plan. (the one allowable exception will be Progenex, which can only be taken within 45 min of your workout and mixed with water.  If you need samples, please as Paul or Stacey and we will be happy to get one for you.)

The official dates of the challenge will be:
Start – Feb 9th
End – Mar 27th
Fee – $20
Winners – One guy and one girl will split the money!

Your steps:
1 – Click here on The Whole 30 and read about the program. You can download the “can eat” and “don’t eat” list, guidelines, rules, and “why’s” all there for free. There is a book you can purchase (It Starts with Food) if you want to learn more, but it is not required.
2 – Sign up! Get your name on the sign up sheet at the box and your fee paid to Stacey.
3 – Grab a friend or family member and have them take your before pictures. You’ll need to get a piece of paper and write “PR Your Life” on it and hold that in the picture. Please do a front, side, and back pose.
4 – We’ll send you an invite to your private google doc where you can track your food, measurements, workouts, and pictures. This is a great way to stay accountable during the challenge and will help the coaches to be able to provide feedback for you as you go.

If you have any questions, please ask Paul or Stacey.  Good LUCK!!

Article of the Day: Trust Your Taste Buds

Want to know if your favorite fruits and veggies are packing more nutritional bang for your buck?

You already have a way to tell: your palate. Over 10,000 taste buds in your mouth are each equipped with 100 to 150 taste cells that send messages to your brain about the chemicals in your food as they dissolve in saliva. But can you tell if a food is more nutritious by tasting it?

Article of the Day: 20 Practical Uses for Coca Cola… Proof That Coke Does Not Belong In the Human Body

Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and “Coca-Cola” is the world’s second-most recognized word after “hello.” However, the beverage itself is an absolute poison to the human metabolism. Coke is very close to the acidity level of battery acid and consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many toxic household cleaners.
