Super excited to dial in our nutrition and training for 6 focused weeks of intentional eating! That’s REALLY what a nutrition challenge should be: intentional, conscious, mindful.
It’s NOT about losing weight, although participants who stick to their nutrition category lose an average of 8 pounds of fat. It’s not about gaining muscle, although the dedicated folks gain an average of 3 pounds muscle!
It’s more about setting the intention to to be in relationship with your body, learning how it responds to change, and on that note, reveling in the fact that your body CAN change, if given the correct training and nutrition protocols….6 weeks of RVC training PLUS a personalized nutrition plan = THIS STUFF WORKS IF YOU WORK IT!
And on that note, remember that even though we HIGHLY recommend picking a Nutrition Challenge category, the goal of the Challenge is to create healthy, sustainable change. For you, that might mean going Paleo, or counting your MACROS, but it could also mean simply cutting alcohol for 6 weeks or just drinking more water every day.
The best nutrition plan is the one you can stick to, and if you stick to it, you WILL see change. If you’re not sure what category to choose, just ask your RVC Coach!
But for now, let’s dive into the Nutrition Challenge Categories!!!
In the videos below, Coach Nick discusses all the Nutrition Challenge categories: Drop the Junk, Paleo, Zone, MACROs, Paleo/Zone and MACRO Timing. You’ll also find MASSIVE pdfs on Paleo eating, including a 6-week menu, complete with shopping lists and recipes!!
Further, the Zone is covered in yet another article, courtesy of our friends at CrossFit HQ; you’ll even find a huge Zone portioning list, outlining the block counts for a ton of foods, as well as easy, delicious menus for quick Paleo snacks and meals. And the list goes on.
In short, there’s a ton of information here. The sooner you dive into it, the better!
And of course, your RVC Coaches are ready to answer any questions, so give us a shout!
But a few quick thoughts:
Regardless of what category you choose, making any change to your current eating routine WILL offer positive results. And remember that we’re challenging ourselves for only 6 short weeks; YOU CAN DO THIS!
Your RVC Coaches stand ready to support your success, so reach out to them ANYTIME with your questions; they KNOW their stuff and are ready to help you reach YOUR goals!
Congratulations in advance kicking butt during RVC’s Spring Into Summer 2022 Nutrition Challenge!
Love, Your RVC Coaching Crew

Keep in mind, no matter what nutrition plan you undertake for your Nutrition Challenge, there is only one way to make sure it works! It starts with consistency, then total calories in/out, what those calories are made of (% carb/fat/protein), and lastly how you time them. See the hierarchy of nutrition below.
