Fall Nutrition Challenge
Monday, October 23rd - Sunday, November 19th

Cost: $25

Information Session: Thursday, October 19th at 5:30pm

Overview: This is a four week challenge that is divided into two phases. 

Phase one: For the first week, we will focus on the quality of foods that we eat. We will focus on eating meats and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. 

Phase two: For the last three weeks, we will continue to eat the high quality foods but will begin to focus on the quantity of the foods we eat by using the same containers from our last nutrition challenge. The containers will control the amount of protein, vegetables, and starch at each meal. The number of meals will be determined by the athlete’s size and goals.
