As you know, we’re tackling 8 weeks of improved eating this fall! Phase 1 kicks off with the ONE AND ONLY 800gChallenge®.

This challenge was designed by OptimizeMe Nutrition. Eat 800 grams (g) of fruits and/or vegetables, by weight, per day. 

No foods are eliminated, but only fruits and veggies count toward the 800g. Eat the fruits and veggies of your choice. Hit the macros you want.

Raw, cooked, canned, frozen; doesn’t matter! If you can weigh it as a standalone and unprocessed fruit or vegetable, you can count it. Yep, that’s it! Here’s a one-sheet with all the rules and scoring details.

So why 800g? It’s associated with increased health and is a simplified way to hit those recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. Read more here.


Monday, Oct. 19 – Sunday, Nov. 13 (the first four weeks of the 8-week effort)


While there is not a cost for the challenge, we do want to know that you’re committed and IN! Sign up for the Fall 2020 Nutrition Effort in MBO so we can communicate with you throughout the challenge.


We will host a meeting on Zoom to go over all the challenge rules and answer your questions. Be sure to be there!
