TGIF! Welcome to the July 30 day challenge! This month there will be 3 challenge options:
1) 30 days of no added sugar outside of fruit. No pasta, no rice, no bread and no potatoes. So you eat lean meat, vegetables, fruit, Greek yogurt with no added sugar (Dannon Triple Zero), beans, nuts, hummus, eggs, green tea, herbal teas, black coffee, almond milk, protein powder for smoothies. Limit dairy where at all possible.
2)Paleo Diet – Pretty close to #1 but no beans and some nuts are eliminated. Check it out at http://ultimatepaleoguide.com/paleo-diet-food-list/
3)If you want to go hard like me incorporate some intermittent fasting. Check it out here at http://www.leangains.com This is not a diet it is an eating pattern where you eat clean from 12pm-8pm and fast intermittently from 8pm-11:59am. Eating this way allows for you to burn more fat and get leaner in the process, it also helps reduce inflammation, helps reduce insulin resistance & aids in eliminating toxins from the body. I am a witness that this works. I lost 8 pounds in one month from following this eating pattern.
What you decide to do this month is totally up to you! The ultimate goal of this challenge is this.
Eat Clean! No processed foods!
Get Sleep! 8 hours of sleep!
Exercise! 5 days a week for at least 30-60 mins each session! Try to include both cardio and strength training in each session alternating the muscle group worked daily.
So let’s get it in my friends and make this month of July, Healthy, Active and Fly!
