90 Day Challenge (The Rules)

“Never give up on what you want to do. The person will big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.”

For 90 days, we have agreed to eat NO junk food, chips, or any fast food. We have agreed to drink NO soda pop, Gatorade or any other sugary drinks. Mom will stop smoking for 90 days. We will not drink alcohol. We will, however, eat 5 small healthy meals per day. We will drink more water and be more active. For all of the details, see below (and our recommended foods page ):

What we CAN eat:
Whole foods that are more a product of nature than a product of industry

Lots of fruits and vegetables (we recommend that you shop for these at your local farmers’ market)

Dairy products like milk, unsweetened yogurt, eggs, and cheese

100% whole-wheat and whole-grains (find a local bakery for approved sandwich bread and check the Understanding Grains post for more info)

Seafood (wild caught is the optimal choice over farm-raised)

Only locally raised meats such as pork, beef, and chicken (preferably in moderation)

Beverages limited to water, milk, all natural juices, naturally sweetened coffee & tea, and, to help the adults keep their sanity, wine and beer!

Snacks like dried fruit, seeds, nuts and popcorn

All natural sweeteners including honey, 100% maple syrup, and fruit juice concentrates are acceptable in moderation

What we CANNOT eat:
No refined grains such as white flour or white rice (items containing wheat must say WHOLE wheat…not just “wheat”)

No refined sweeteners such as sugar, any form of corn syrup, cane juice, or the artificial stuff like Splenda

Nothing out of a box, can, bag, bottle or package that has more than 5 ingredients listed on the label

No deep fried foods

No “fast foods”

Caffeine and Alcohol:
Coffee allowed (Black only)
