Grocery Lists/Approved Foods
These lists and guides are not 100% comprehensive and are by no means law. The point of the challenge is to learn what benefits you will earn from healthy eating, such as better emotional well being, better performance, better health, and yes, better body composition. Please ask questions but don’t feel pressured to get everything perfect. Use the guides and you will be fine.
Not required but highly beneficial:
Limit honey, or maple syrup to minimums, if any for the next 30 days.
Limit sweet potatoes, bananas, plantains and yams to post workout.
Have protein, carbohydrate, and fat with each meal together. This will help you feel full longer between meal times.
Limit shakes* and protein drinks* to post workout.
*The powders that most use as recovery drinks. Things like progenex and syntha six, are not sugar free but if you are stuck with them they will not count against you.
Teams will be announced tomorrow when we have a complete list.
