This is designed to give you a guide on what to eat and what not to eat.  The idea is to basically eliminate artificial foods, breads and sugar.  Be smart.  If it has any of those items in it-don't eat it. Note: This is not in connection with the Macro Challenge going on January 2016. This list is just a guide on what to eat day-to-day for regular life.

    So are we only allowed to have fish and seafood? I just want to make sure

      I don’t know if you’re joking. Yes, you are allowed to have fish & seafood but meat is allowed too.

    Any suggestions on salad dressing or should we just stay clear? I know I’m not signed up for the challenge but I’m trying to follow this as well

    oil and vinegar is best for salad dressing (with salt and pepper). It’s not bad. It’s really difficult to find salad dressings without sugar. You can also find recipes online to make your own. Good Luck! And why didnt you sign up for the Challenge, Colton?

    I don’t really have a reason to be honest I just dropped the ball last week, if I’m going to be 100% honest but I’m excited to do it and get in shape! Thanks for all the help and suggestions
