Welcome to the #800gChallenge! We are so excited to bring you our next group nutrition program, and in-house nutrition program with all the accountability and ‘pro tips’ you need to make 2020 your best year yet. Read below for all the details and mark your calendar for the #800g Challenge kick-off and seminar on January 29th!

THE RULES OF THE CHALLENGE

Eat 800 grams (g) of fruits and vegetables a day. No foods are off-limits, but you only count your fruits and vegetables towards challenge points. Raw, cooked, canned, frozen; doesn’t matter!  If you can weigh it as a standalone and unprocessed fruit or vegetable, you can count it. See photos posted below for reference. Your choices can be higher carb, lower carb, all fruit, perfect Paleo: it’s up to you.

SO WHY 800G?

800g is only 25% of your daily caloric goal, and yet most of us have a hard time getting in our fruits & veggies. Instead of trying to diet by eliminating foods from our diet, let’s focus on the healthy things we can ADD… there simply won’t be as much space to eat as much unhealthy things.

CHALLENGE DATES

February 1st, 2020  – Feb 29th, 2020

CHALLENGE KICKOFF

We’ll kick off the challenge with a Nutrition Seminar on Wednesday, January 29th at 6:30 pm. EDX Coach Kari will lead a 1-hour seminar for challenge participants only. We will talk all things nutrition – lifestyle, plate setup, macros and much more! This will be your opportunity to collect all the nutrition ‘pro tips,’ as well as get your specific questions answered.

POINTS

  • 2 points are awarded for eating 800 grams of fruits and/or vegetables in a day. You do not get extra points for any amount over 800g.
  • 1 additional point is awarded for “diversity”: when 6 or more fruits and/or vegetables are used to hit your daily 800g total (where each of these 6+ items has to have a minimum of 25g). Hitting 800g is a day is a prerequisite to being eligible for this point.
  • 1 point is also awarded for each class completed at EDX CrossFit (max 5 points per week). A run on your own or workout in your home gym does. not. count.

WINNER

We will award a one-hour Nutrition Coaching Session to the person with the highest point total at the end of the month. We’ll also have a few runner-up prizes.
