That's right, it's baaaaaaaaaaack! Time to cut the JUNK food out of our diets for our Cut the Crap 21 day challenge!!!

It is a well known fact that you can overeat any workout program. With all the hot dogs, hamburgers, sweet tea, sodas, cakes, breads, dips, ice creams and so on that are available I think it is time that we (meaning our class collectively) take a little break from all the junk and CUT THE CRAP!

CRAP stands for…

Caffeine –I like to have a cup of coffee in the morning and actually 1-2 cups of coffee or tea per day are not that bad. It is the Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and all the other sugary stuff that people (me included) tend to put in coffee that is the issue. Also, having more than a couple of cups per day can lead to muscle tremors, rapid heartbeat, nervousness, and depression.

Refined Sugar – Just think of EVERYTHING! Just about everything in the American Diet has sugar in it! My beloved Coca-Colas, cakes, candy and just about every packaged food you can buy in a vending machine.

Alcohol – I have always viewed alcohol as empty calories. I am not one of those people who need alcohol to unwind and have a good time! Just turn on music, and I am ready to dance completely sober! At any rate, limiting alcohol in take is a critical part of cutting the crap.

Processed Foods – Most things that come in a box, jar, can or foam packaging from a fast food restaurant are processed. Most processed foods contain bleached wheat flour like white bread (gasp!). White sugar, white rice, white pasta are all processed and should all be avoided-at least during the challenge and then eaten in moderation afterwards.

Ok so, what can I eat: Things prepared by human hands NOT a machine!

Whole grains!
Fruits!
Veggies!
Lean cuts of meat!

Soooo, with the start of the new session, let’s take a 21 day challenge to CUT the CRAP! Complete the challenge and get entered in a drawing for free fitness wear!

Start the challenge soon and complete it by August 2, 2012!
