Summer bodies are built BEFORE summer, soooooo........
We're using the 6 weeks leading up to Memorial Day Weekend to get us lean!
Start date: April 15th
End date: May 26th
Points system as follows:
1 point per day for sticking to the food list for all meals
1 point per day for sticking to the measurements for all meals
1 point per day for eating your number of meals
1 point per day for communicating with your buddy
Protein: The leaner the better. Grass-fed and organic are ideal. Wild-caught cold water fish are best.
Carbs: We want to have nutrient-dense carbohydrates. Fruits and these starchy carbs will do that for us.
Spaghetti, Butternut & Acorn Squashes
Oatmeal-1/2 cup UNCOOKED
Vegetables: Each meal must have at least this many vegetables. To keep it simple, if it’s a vegetable eat it. Diversify what vegetables are on your plate from meal to meal and you are all set.
Fats: Round out your meal and remain full until the next with these healthy options:
Nuts & seeds
Measuring your meals - 2 options:
1 - Meal Prep Containers (here.) The picture below is for reference with veggies, protein, and carbs. You also will need to add up to 1 Tablespoon of fat to each meal. You are allowed UP TO the top of the container for protein and carbs (no more), and you must eat AT LEAST that for the vegetables.
2 - Measure your protein, carbs, veggies and fat with measuring cups as follows:
Number of meals, by shirt size:
In the pursuit of results, we're also going to be partnering you up with a fellow challenge participant. As we see in partner workouts, everyone tries harder when they have someone relying on them. We're applying that to this nutrition challenge. It's also part of your points.
*This gives us a total of 168 points. IF you hit 80% of your points (135) or higher, YOU GET YOUR MONEY BACK. You get results, you get money. That's winning.
Very simply put, pre/post workout supplements are focused on performance. If you are not where you want to be body composition-wise, then performance is not the priority. FitAid and Ascent Preworkout & Protein is ONLY allowed pre & post-workout, once a day.
