  14. First and Foremost  The challenge is a starting point  The challenge is not just and 8 week program  The challenge should be the beginning of a lifestyle change  We are trying to figure out something sustainable for life
  15. Nutrition Basics  Eliminate ALL processed foods  Eat food the way it came from earth  If it comes in a package odds are its not ok  If it comes in a package read the ingredients  If you cant pronounce an ingredient or when you say it out loud it does not sound like food DON’T EAT IT no exceptions  3 meals a day + 1 pre/post wod snack  Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and fuel/recovery for WOD

  23. Protein Powder Explained  Different qualities  Low quality is cheap but has more additives and more lactose  High quality is easier to digest, causes less GI issues  Whey vs Beef vs Vegan
  24. You Need To Sleep  Proper sleep is required for recovery  Hormonal blance  Less cortisol  8 hours a night  Same bedtime same awake time (give or take :30)  Hormonal imbalance due to lack of sleep is similar to that of a TBI
  25. Where do I start  High Quality foods are very filling  Pizza vs chicken and rice  The idea is to load up on low calorie foods like vegetables and fruit  “mostly plants”  If you’re doing it right, you’ll actually be eating a lot of food  Get creative  This called a challenge for a reason
  26. Cheats  2 Cheat meals per week  Plan ahead so you know when they are coming  Indulge and reward yourself but don’t go crazy  You can do a lot of damage in 24 hours

  29. How to Track your Food  My Fitness Pal  Eat as many vegetables as you want  Put them in so we see you are eating them  Guesstimate serving size  Remember quality usually takes care of quantity  Give yourself credit for a serving of fruit, but don’t go crazy measuring  i.e. track 1 cup of strawberries but eat however many you want  Don’t track what you had for a cheat meal
  30. Body Fat Percentage  Impossible to determine based on looks alone  Business suit = business man  How you wear it depends on your muscle mass  Try not to focus on what the number is, but that it goes down
  31. The Rules.  Eat Real Food  If you are unsure if your food is “real” ask yourself some questions  Will it spoil  Is this a food that is causing the obesity epidemic  If you are unsure ask  1 point per day you eat following the rules  Up to 6 points per week
  32. Cheats  Everyone gets one cheat day  Alternative: 2 cheat meals, get ½ point for healthy eating for other meals/snacks on those days  Each cheat on a non-cheat day is MINUS 1  Cheats include anything processed  Sweets of any kind (including “paleo sweets”)  Read your ingredients on things like ketchup, bbq sauce, and anything else that has a label. Don’t get caught eating something with high fructose corn syrup (like ketchup) or extra sugar without knowing.  Even if you are not a mathematician it is easy to realize that one cheat cancels out a whole day of eating healthy, so be wary of your cheats…they are costly  “MY WHOLE WEEK IS SHOT….”  Suck up the loss of your point and get back on the wagon for the next meal.
  33. Rules Cont.  Sleep 7.5 hours or more  1 point for each night you sleep enough  7 points per week available
  34. Rules Cont.  Each day you exercise is +1 point up to 6 points a week. We do not want you training 7 days a week its just too much and not maintainable  CrossFit Wod is not the only way to gain a point  Intense exercise of any kind for 30 min or more counts  If you don’t need a shower it wasn’t hard enough  If you choose to not take a shower that’s up to you  The maximum points you can accumulate per day is 1  2 workouts in one day does not earn extra points  Again we are not encouraging over training
  35. WODs on the Smackdown  Open gym:  Make up a missed WOD  Chippers  Running, rowing, assault bike  Keep it aerobic – 80%  Don’t shy away from weight lifting and/or sprint WODs because they don’t give the big calorie reward  These pay off in the long run
  36. The Benchmark WOD  18 min Amrap 30/22 cal bike 12 pullups 8 front squats 65%/50% bw (Rx+ 75%/65%) 1 point for every rep PR on retest Repeat wod with same front squat weight and pullup scale or scale up at the end of the challenge. Bonus points if you go from scaled to RX!
