Our goal for this challenge is to better our health and wellness while we create new habits that we can sustain for a lifetime. This is not a weight loss challenge, but by choosing better quality foods and creating better habits, fat loss and body composition change will certainly still occur!
Eat Real Food + Balanced Meals
Real food was once alive and doesn’t come from a box or container. If it has a long shelf life and is a man-made, edible, food-like substance; not food. You must eat from the approved food lists below.
We are focusing on eating 3-4 balanced meals a day (no seconds and no snacking). Each meal should contain a real food protein, fat and carbohydrate source. No snacking, with the exception of a protein shake or recovery drink (KillCliff, Fuel For Fire, BCAA’s) within 30 minutes of working out.
What are real foods? They are foods that grow in nature that we can eat in their natural state. A list of real foods is available below.
The leaner the better. Grass-fed and organic are ideal. Wild-caught cold water fish are the best.
We want to have nutrient-dense carbohydrates. Fruits and these starchy carbs will do that for us.
Diversify what vegetables are on your plate from meal to meal to ensure you are getting all the nutrients your body needs.
A serving of fat is the size of your thumb, about one tablespoon, or a small handful of nuts. Here are the healthy options…
Say No To:
Processed foods. Nothing that comes in a box or bag
Refined salt or sugar
Hydrogenated fats (margarine, vegetable shortening)
Canola, Vegetable, Grapeseed, Soybean oil
Protein bars (all of them)
Juices (Fresh squeezed or from concentrate)
Sports drinks containing sugar
Flavored BCAA’s, KillCliff, etc. (outside of 30min workout window)
Commonly asked, OK list:
Natural sweeteners (honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar) *1 tsp. per day max
Sea Salt (Himalayan Pink, Grey)
Supplements (Fish Oil, Flax Oil, Vitamins, Minerals only)
Smoothies (Whole foods blended)
Seltzer (Plain or Flavored)
Deli Meats (No sugar or nitrates added)
Bacon (No sugar or nitrates added)
Potatoes (Not fried at a restaurant)
Beans and Legumes (except peanuts)
Salad Dressing (Homemade without sugar, Primal Kitchen, or Tessemae’s)
Unsweetened Coconut and Almond Milk
Full Fat Dairy (NO low-fat milk or cheese, look for grass-fed)
Coffee and Tea (Unsweetened)
Bone Broth/Stock (Look for grass-fed)
Mustard & Hot Sauce (No added sugar)
Mayo made with healthy oils (Primal Kitchen, Chosen Foods, Sir Kensington)
What about going out to dinner?
It is not our goal to become anti-social cave-dwellers! Still go out and enjoy – just be selective with your orders. Every restaurant out there will have options for some sort of meat/seafood as the main course. Start with that, and ask for extra veggies for the sides. Good to go, and is in the clear for the challenge!
