2016 Winter Whole30 Challenge!

The holiday season and all the associated trappings of sweets, booze, and all manner of delicious treats has mercifully come to a close. Therefore, it’s time to hit the reset switch after the past few months of likely over-indulgence to help everyone lean out and start of 2016 on the right foot.
Our method of choice for for getting lean, mean, and healthy is the Whole30. What exactly is the Whole30? It is simply 30 days of eating only WHOLE FOODS. So no processed food, sugar, alcohol, sweeteners, grains, dairy, soy, or legumes. What can you eat? Essentially meat, seafood, vegetables, fruit, starchy roots and tubers, nuts, and seeds.
Everyone that has done a Paleo/Primal dietary challenge (Whole30 or otherwise) in the past can attest to efficacy of such programs. Bottom line is this stuff will do wonders for your body composition, energy levels, mental acuity, performance, skin quality, sleep, and the list goes on. It is also a pretty darn rigorous (depending on how you currently eat) diet for 30 days. If you want to actually make some inroads on losing that stubborn body fat you can’t ever seem to shake, this is the program for you. Whole30 is also a great way to break dependencies on sugar and other addictive food substances that plague our diets and health.
We’ll go over all the specifics at our initial kickoff meeting this Sunday 10 January at 10AM, so mark your calendars and make it happen. The official challenge start date is Monday January 11, so that we can finish just in time to look fantastic at the Cupid’s Undie Run! However, you can obviously start sooner if you wish. Theres additional significance behind doing this Whole30 in mid-January, and that is Cupid’s Undie Run. The Undie Run is a huge annual charity fundraising event in which participants will be running around the streets of DC in our underwear in support of the Children’s Tumor Foundation (Team CFSS raised over 15k last year!). Most people think of bikini season as May-August, but for us Undie Runners, it starts decidedly earlier!
You may have reservations about the whole Paleo/Primal diet concept for one reason or another (if you can call evolutionary biology and overwhelming empirical evidence a concept), but were only asking you do try something different for 30 days and see what happens. Ask you yourself, what do you have to lose?
