Does the Coronavirus have you cooped up in the house, stress-eating all of your “emergency” quarantine snacks?
I'm here to tell you: You 're not alone!
But a quick trip to the grocery store reveals the truth: Even during a pandemic, we still have access to plenty of fruits and veggies. But it's hard to choose those items when we have easy access to a stash of hyper-palatable goodies.
There's a lot that is outside of our control right now. This is our challenge to you to take control of the things you can.
Meet the 800g Challenge!
WHat is the 800g CHallenge?
The 800g Challenge is a 4-week challenge with a focus on increasing your daily intake of fruits and veggies.
Eat 800 grams (g) of fruits and/or vegetables, by weight, per day. That's it.
Unlike other challenges, 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 are the rules.
So why 800g? It’s associated with increased health and is a simplified way to hit those recommended servings of fruits and vegetables.
how it works
The challenge will be hosted through Wodify Rise. You'll use you're same Wodify account information from the gym to sign-up.
Every day you will score yourself for 3 tasks:
- Eat at least 800g's of fruits and veggies
- Eat 6 different forms of fruits and veggies to reach 800g's
- Exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes a day
You can also receive bonus points on Mon. and Fri. for uploading pictures of your 800g meals.
Why should I do it?
Because odds are you're probably not eating enough fruits and veggies on a daily basis in the first place.
A diet that's dense in fruits and veggies will leave you feeling fuller and more satiated. Therefore less room for non-nutritious options.
Plus fruits and veggies are packed with vitamins and minerals that are key to keeping the immune system healthy.
When is it?
The challenge starts Monday Mar. 30th, and ends Wednesday Apr. 29th.
