Summer Slimdown Challenge starts June 5!

I just announced this on IG, but wanted to provide some additional details here!

I've been working on this for a few weeks now! June 5 is the beginning of my summer break from school, and I REALLY want to make it count! So since I love a good challenge group, I decided to make one up specifically for my tribe! This challenge is for my fellow keto, paleo and/or primal people because the main goal is to EAT REAL FOOD! Processed food, and especially sugar, should be avoided. But this challenge will focus on progress, not perfection. Don't feel like anyone is going to be the food police if you still use artificial sweeteners or something not considered "clean".

There IS a $25 entry fee, but that's how I will be able to provide CASH prizes. And I just think that people take challenges seriously if their own money is on the line! There will also be other weekly prizes thanks to some generous sponsors!

I emailed (begged) so many companies so that we could have as many incentives as possible! Yes, a lot of these are keto/paleo approved "treats", but like I said, I don't expect perfection. This challenge is 8 weeks long, so if you do have a treat, pick the best choice possible.

I really want this challenge to be a learning experience for anyone who wants to clean their diet up and really don't know where to start. I will be trying to provide as much science and research as I can on lower carb, higher fat eating. I truly think it's one of THE most healthy food lifestyles there is.

Our challenge group will use the GroupMe app. That's how we will communicate and support each other.

At the end of the challenge we will have TWO grand prize winners. One will be for the person who loses the highest percentage of weight. The other will be for the person with the highest points total based on a weekly tracking system. This spreadsheet will give points based on healthy habits like drinking water, exercise, tracking, and staying true to your food template (no cheats).

I'll post more information over the next couple of weeks, but I'm so excited to do this!
