I am very happy you’re joining us for the free 7-Day Paleo Challenge.
The challenge is to eat nutrient-dense, paleo meals for 7 days straight. By doing so, you can expect to boost your nutrition, gain energy, lose a pound, improve digestion and feel healthier.
I wanted to inject a bit of fun and gameplay into this challenge, so I came up with a daily 10-point scoring system to keep you engaged and on track.
To complete this LIVE challenge, you have two rules:
1. You must stick to paleo diet guidelines for 7 days.
2. You have to score 10 points in mini-challenges by the end of each day.
How does the 10-point scoring system work?
Every day, you get a choice of 10 mini-challenges and tasks to complete. For example, you must stick with the paleo guidelines (this one is compulsory) and that automatically gives you 4 points.
You then have to make up 6 more points. You have to tick at least 6 more challenges of your choice from the list (e.g. include a green vegetable on a Monday). You can review the 10-point checklists ahead of time, so you can plan for ultimate success. I will also remind you via email and Facebook group updates.
Here are guides and resources that you need to download and read for the challenge
Shopping & meal planning?
I wanted to keep this part flexible and instead of giving you a ready-made shopping list and a meal plan, I want YOU to choose what you want to eat every day based on some suggestions and the overall guidelines.
I believe that by DOING it yourself, you will be better equipped to plan and prepare paleo meals going forward. With over 400 recipes on my own blog, my free menu plans, my cookbooks and all the other available resources out there, you will have no shortage of meals to choose from. I have put together this simple guide to shopping & meal planning.
The challenge kicks off on a Monday but you should start preparing a few days earlier. Allocate some time on Saturday and Sunday for planning, shopping and doing some meal prep.
First and foremost, you should be accountable to yourself. Set your goals and think about WHY you’re doing this challenge. Whenever you get distracted or feel like giving up, simply remind yourself of the WHYs and keep going. Feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day as you score those 10 points.
I will help you to stay accountable in the following ways:
1. Every day, you will receive a check-in email from me with your 10-point checklist, daily tips, nutritional info and meal ideas.
2. I will be checking in on our private Facebook group and on Instagram and ask you to report back your daily scores. You can share what you scored, your meal pictures, how you’re feeling and anything else you want to talk about in regards to the challenge. Don’t feel like sharing? That’s fine too.
That’s about it for now. I hope you find this 7-day challenge fun, engaging and effective. Stay tuned for your check-in emails and updates.
