The Food Dare. One thing you can do everyday to eat healthier.
I had the opportunity to get an advance copy of The Food Dare by Lindsey Banks http://fitlifepursuits.com/thefooddare/ through my association with Fitfluential to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
If you are alike me, you want to eat healthy all the time but with all the travel and being so busy, it’s a lot easier to eat out or just grab something fast. And when you are like me and love french fries and sweets, that’s not quite as healthy as it should be.
The Food Dare is written on the basis that if we we can make one small change a day it will help us be healthier. It is not a diet, but a way to slowly make lifestyle changes. Lindsey tells us that this is not a dare that is to be taken lightly, you have to be ready to commit and be determined to finish. With all my travel in the last month and this coming month, I’m not ready to commit yet (I’m going to Italy and I’m going to eat what I want on my honeymoon :)), but I plan to when we get back.
The Food Dare is a 30 day program is broken down into 3 phases, Water, Color & Clean.
Phase 1 (Days 1 – 10) is Water. As water takes up over 60% of our bodies, this phases teaches us to increase our consumption, through drinking more water and getting it from whole foods, specifically fruits and veggies.
Phase 2 (Days 11 – 20) is Color. Color stands for fruit & vegetables and this phase teaches us ways to eat more of them. By incorporating them into every meal and substituting fruits & veggies for unhealthier options.
Phase 3 (Days 21 – 30) is Clean. Clean means eating more whole unprocessed foods. This sections is devoted to teaching us about what types of grains, proteins & fats that are the best choices.
The Food Dare is meant to teach us healthy habits that we will incorporate into our daily lives. I am really looking committing to the Dare when I get back from Italy.
As we enter into the Holiday Season and have so many temptations around us, this is a great way to get a head start on making healthy choices.
