How do I accumulate points?
Each DAY you will be able to enter your points for the day. You can get up to 8 points per day, 1 each for the following:
Movement/Mobility – 1 Point
It is important to move and stretch every day. Movement can be lifting weights, running, skiing, racquetball, or just going for a walk. Mobility can be things like stretching or foam rolling. The important thing is to be moving or stretching for at least 10 minutes, even on rest days.
Fish Oil – 1 Point
Fish oil is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. It has been shown to reduce inflammation, blood pressure, and even your risk of cancer. Take one teaspoon per day for this point. You can find my favorite at PurePharma.
Water – 1 Point
Drinking enough water every day is critical! Take your body weight and divide it by 3. Drink AT LEAST that many ounces of pure water every day. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, then drink at least 50 ounces of water. Unsweetened seltzer water counts. Coffee, tea, soda, etc. do not count.
No Sugar - 1 Point
Sugar is, at it’s very essence, almost pure energy. The problem is that we are very good at storing this energy as fat. That means no soda, no candy, no Gatorade, no delicious white mochas from Starbucks.
No Alcohol – 1 Point
Once digested, alcohol is essentially a sugar, causing the same problems that refined table sugar has. Additionally, it interferes with a number of your body’s processes, such as muscle recovery. It’ll be tough, but stick with it!
No Refined Carbs – 1 Point
Refined carbohydrates, like bread, pasta, and flour, act very similarly to sugar. Your body easily converts them into glucose, which gets stored as fat if you don’t use it right away. Complex carbs, especially from fruits and veggies, are much better.
Point Executed – 1 Point
Each day you’ll receive a tip from me. Read the tip and watch the video. Some tips will contain an extra challenge that you need to complete for this point.
Timing – 1 Point
New Rule! Finish eating by 8:30pm (some are entitled to exceptions, for example, if you work night shifts)
Can’t I cheat?
Yes. But this is the honor system, and we expect you to enter your points truthfully. The goal is to work on becoming more healthy and developing good habits. The prizes are just a bonus.
