We’re starting a 30-day Nutrition Challenge on Saturday May 13th! We’re adding a new twist to things this time: we’re going to give you the option of doing the Whole30 (great for first-timers!) OR eating Whole30-ish, identifying one bad eating habit that you have, and using this 30 day period to break it.
Some examples of habits you might want to try to break: the tendency to eat too fast or in too large portions, eating mindlessly or boredom eating, nighttime eating, stress eating, or a sugar addiction.
::: WHAT IS THE WHOLE30? :::
The Whole30 is a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system. Participants commonly report consistently high energy levels, improved athletic performance, better sleep, and improved focus and mental clarity.

::: WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH HABIT-BREAKING? :::
Most people find that the Whole30 helps them overcome cravings and reestablish a healthy relationship with food. But often one trip through the Whole30 isn’t enough to break stubborn eating habits. If you’ve done the Whole30 before, generally eat pretty clean, but have found a bad eating habit has crept back into your life, this is your chance to really focus on eliminating it.
::: THE PRIZES :::
First place man and woman will each win $100 cash plus $100 membership credit.
Second place man and woman will each win $75 cash plus $75 membership credit.
Third place man and woman will each win $50 cash plus $50 membership credit.
To be eligible to win, participants must participate fully in the buy in and cash out sessions. Winners will be decided by a coaches vote, based on best results. Note that this is NOT about who loses the most weight. We are more interested in a combination of change in body composition (i.e. losing fat and gaining muscle) as judged by before/after photos, and improved performance on the benchmark workout!
