The 20 Day Nutrition Challengeâ€¦ what is it? Â The Challenge is simply to challenge you to take the next 20 days to identify areas of your life/diet that you could alter to improve. Â Here are some examples:
- Reduce sugar in any form: For some it could be real sugar, for others it could be the glycemic load of the vegetables that you eat. Â Do you see the dichotomy? Â One person might be drinking 4 sodas a day, and it would be ridiculous for that person to start nitpicking their red peppers vs a green pepper. Â But for that person who is eating rich glycemis load veggies all day, and missing out on the low carb, low glycemic load of the leafy greens, it would be a good place to start.
- Find value in the right kind of dairy: Â I had taught no dairy is best for about seven years. Â Arguing that Biblical dairy was likely sheep and goat. Â Though, some historical reference suggests that is wrong. Â So we slowly started adding a little dairy back in. Â Pasture Butter, Pasture Cream (basically the rich fats from a grass fed cow). Â Now we have added appropriate cheeses to that list and dairy products that actually offer some health benefits that you cannot get anywhere. Â In short, this has really changed my mind to how to look at dairy. Â Does Casein stink? Â Yep. Â Can people be lactose intolerant, yep. Â So there are guidelines, rules and self assessments that must take place to really know where you are, but I would pretty much take the knowledge I have to full debate with any paleo preaching educator on the planet.
