**STRENGTH CLASS TODAY @4:00**
**We have had some interest in a nutrition challenge for people who want to stay on track during the holidays. We will be doing another team challenge and it will start Monday Dec.3rd.The challenge will be a 21 day sugar detox and the benefits will go to the Utah Food Bank. For full detail please read the post on Saturday.**
21 Day Holiday Sugar Detox
(Benefitting Utah Food Bank)
3 members per team. Each team should have at least 1 male and 1 female.
15-20 cans of food or $25 worth of non-perishable items for food bank.
“Kelly” (if weather allows)
Five rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
30 Box jump, 24 inch box
30 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
We will be taking the lowest score per team on Kelly both pre and post challenge.
21 days NO added sugar of any kind (yes that includes honey, maple syrup, coconut crystals, stevia, truvia, agave, molasses, high fructose corn syrup yadda yadda – if you’re using it to “sweeten” your food, it’s a “no-go”!).
Because your body processes white flour or refined grains the same way as it does sugar, you’ll have to avoid those as well!
We’re certain there will be several holiday parties and events that you will attend. You will get a one-event pass to do as you wish. Keep in mind, that the optimal choice would be to opt out of any exposure to sugar during the 21 days, since even the smallest exposure can set you back significantly. However, if you choose to consume some type of sugar whether in food form or alcohol, you are allowed one event (or one party) during the 21 day challenge – choose wisely!
Each exposure to sugar will mean a lower Kelly score for team.
If a member of the team consumes sugar, the penalty will be a wod of choice determined by the coaches and will require 5 non-perishable food items for food bank.
Winners will be determined by benchmark scores and least amount of sugar exposures. Team Captain will document any sugar exposure during challenge and pre/post benchmark scores for all members, which will then be sent to Maria (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the end of the challenge. Any questions during challenge, can be answered by Maria via Facebook.
Winning team members will receive one coconut product of choice (one bottle of coconut aminos, one bag of coconut flour or unsweetened coconut shavings).
Teams placing 2nd and below, will each collectively provide food bank with the equivalent of a meal’s worth of food (i.e., turkey/ham, canned vegetables, canned fruit, etc. to feed one family).
Pre and post photos are encouraged! (you are not required to share these with others)
Can I eat whole wheat during this challenge?
Although whole wheat still interrupts the digestion process, if you choose to eat grains during this challenge, whole wheat products are ok – as long as there are no added sugars in said products.
What about alcohol during this challenge?
Alcohol negatively impacts blood sugar levels, period. So for this challenge, it’s out.
Where do we bring non-perishable food items?
We will have a box at CF22.
