The Fall 2018 Nutrition Challenge combines #800g and macros!

Designed by OptimizeMe Nutrition and Own Your Eating, the challenge will help people better understand the two unavoidable truths in nutrition: quality and quantity matter! Sure, you can pay attention to one versus the other but getting a 6-pack of abs and living to 100 years old requires both!

Combine the #800gChallenge that is dedicated to fruit and vegetable consumption (quality) with Macros which is dedicated to eating the right quantity of food according to your macros prescription (quantity) and voila! – the Foundations Challenge was born.

Participants will eat 800 grams (g) of fruits and/or vegetables, by weight, as well as adhere to personalized protein, carbohydrate, and fat requirements each day. More details provided at the Chalk Talk!
