Friday, January 25
We have settled on a few things for the Paleo Challenge that some of you had questions about. First off here are the prizes:1st place: $100 2nd place: $50 3rd place: choice of 616 apparel
There is no maximum points for a day or a meal. This means that if you have a glass of wine it is 1 point and if you have 5 glasses it's 5 points, 10 glasses = 10 points. Same goes for food. Each bad item counts as a point. However, we are not counting each ingredient in a slice of pizza. the food item itself is what counts.
There were a lot of questions about root vegetables and here's the answer: white potatoes of any variety are not good foods for this challenge and will get you a point. They are simply too starchy and do not fall into the guidelines for a healthy day of eating. All other root vegetables and starchy vegetables should be consumed in moderation, this includes sweet potatoes, squash, beets, and more. The point of this challenge is to get you eating a good clean diet. It is too easy to get caught up in the game of "Is this paleo?" Think about your goals and what you want to get out of this challenge. This is a jumpstart for a healthy diet for the rest of your life.
And last, but not least
you can only get 7 points per week for working out. You can do a workout of the day anywhere (we hope it is with us) and that will earn you a point for the day, but you can not do multiple workouts in a day to lower (better) your score. You can get 0 points for the week with 5 or more workouts. This is the best score you can get for the week. Doing multiple workouts in a day will not get you any extra deductions. We do not want to encourage over training. Remember, rest and recovery are a big part of this as well. Check the rules document for more info on workout scoring.
Hope this clears a few things up. Good luck with the rest of the challenge and keep letting us know how you feel! And don't be afraid to ask more questions. We'll do our best to get answers to you as quickly as possible.
