Building a Good Foundation for Nutrition

Written By, Coach Vanesa Suazo

Doesn’t it seem like there’s always the new latest trend for the best diet that will help you lose those unwanted pounds in record time? New research showing that “this diet” is the one that will give you the results you want. Then there’s always all this conflicting information on whether to eat high or low carb; whether to eat plant based or carnivore ; whether calories matter or they don’t. We’re left conflicted, not really knowing what to do and jumping from one plan to the other, never really getting the results we want. The question is, what actually works?

The Hard 75 Challenge Rules: 

  1. 2 Workouts a day; 45’ inside, 45’ outside 
  2. Follow a nutrition/ diet plan/ meal plan. 
  3. No alcohol. 
  4. No cheat meals. 
  5. Read 10 physical pages a day (no audiobooks!) 
  6. 1 progress picture a day. 
  7. 1 gallon of water a day.
