Nutrition Challenge Instructions

Congratulations on deciding to take your nutrition and fitness to the next level! Please read these instructions carefully, and then ask questions at any time when they come up. We want you to be successful and are here to help! Here's what you do to participate - Go shopping and only purchase whole, unprocessed foods. Commit to eating only those foods for six weeks. Spend extra time prepping meals for the week, eat out less, etc. Spend extra time and planning to ensure you get ample sleep during the six weeks. Get your planned workouts in. You will be placed on a team and your team's scores will determine a winner - this is just to add a little excitement. Do the above and you will see amazing results.
