The challenge officially kicks off on Monday, May 10th but we will be holding a kickoff meeting on Saturday, May 8th for all participants. If you can’t make the kickoff meeting don’t worry…we’ll be providing a recording so you can watch at your convenience. This challenge is open to the public, so feel free to get all of your friends and family involved!
The moto for this challenge will be: Eat Real Food, Not Too Much, Mostly Plants.
What does this all mean…
Eat Real Food (Quality)
Real food is anything that was once alive. We will be avoiding anything processed. This means we will be avoiding the following foods:
All Grains (wheat, bread, pasta, corn, see exceptions below)
Dairy (cheese, milk, most yogurt, see exceptions below)
All Sugar & Sweeteners (artificial, natural or otherwise)
Refined vegetable oils (canola oil, sunflower oil, margarine, etc.)
Anything with the ‘Paleo’ qualifier (i.e. Paleo muffins, pancakes, cookies, etc.)
Our allowable foods will be broken down into 4 categories…protein, carbohydrates, vegetables, and fats…as shown in the table below. This isn’t an exhaustive list but should cover the vast majority. If you have a question about a specific food please let us know.
The Exceptions: For each of the following limit to one serving per day.
Oatmeal, Rice, Quinoa, or White Potatoes (Carbohydrates)
Plain Unsweetened Greek Yogurt or Cottage Cheese (Protein/Fat)
Legumes (Black Beans, Chick Peas, Kidney Beans, etc.) (Carbohydrate/Fat)
Not Too Much (Quantity)
During this challenge we will be encouraging participants to track their food on MyFitnessPal. This will allow us to really dial in our quantities for each individual. As part of the challenge we will be giving each participant personalized calorie and macro-nutrient targets to hit each day. You won’t get points for hitting your targets, but rather every day you log your food you will receive a point. Everyone will eat 3 balanced meals per day, and will be allowed 1-2 snacks throughout the day. Specific quantities will be different for each individual based on your total calorie targets. As a general rule of thumb we will be utilizing the plate or 3-compartment container method.
Every meal, regardless of time of day, should be made up of mostly vegetables. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables fills you up more and guards your health in the long run.
There are 6 total points available each day plus a weekly bonus!!
1 Point: For logging your food in MyFitnessPal
1 Point: For eating clean (no sugar, processed foods, alcohol, or other restrictions)
1 Point: For eating 3 balanced meals per day (each containing protein, carbs, and fat)
1 Point: For drinking 80/60 ounces of water (men/women)
1 Point: For working out at Inguz, dropping in at another affiliate, or doing a travel WOD
1 Point: For getting at least 7 hours of sleep
Bonus Points: Weekly Challenge!!
