Welcome to Week 1

Congratulations! 

You just made an extraordinary commitment to your health and well being. 

Over the next 6 weeks you will be physically challenged and mentally refreshed.

LIFESTYLE THEME

Eating

 

This week's theme is eating.

Food is fuel and food is medicine.

While it is imperative to nourish our bodies with clean, whole, unprocessed foods, we are going to focus on how we are eating, rather than what. 

This week, bring awareness to your eating habits by committing to one of these tips, or trying a new one each day.

The Tips:

1. Chew each bite 30-40 times

2. Set down your utencils 3-4 times      per meal

3. Stop eating when you're 80% full

4. Distraction free meal time (no          electronics!)

5. Look at, and smell your food for       1-min before diving in. 

6. Sit down while eating anything 

    (snacks included)
