The upcoming nutrition challenge approaches fueling from a very different angle than past challenges. While we still think a Paleo style of eating is the best pathway to optimal health and performance both in the immediate and the long term, we also acknowledge that changing the way you eat is a journey. It is our experience that athletes transition the way they eat not in just 30 or 60 days, but overtime as they experience new challenges, realizations, personal experiences, successes and failures.
The food we eat usually falls somewhere in the spectrum of “worst shit you could ever put in your body” to nutrient-rich fuel that makes you feel and perform at your potential. This 45 day point-based challenge is structured around that view and the perspective of the food journey. Not only does every person have a somewhat unique relationship with food, but also different goals, lifestyles, food skills, and many other connections to what they eat. This challenge allows each athlete to choose a level of commitment that will help them make positive changes with confidence.
