New Year New You Challenge

By: 1 Comment


 Welcome. The NYNY is a 30-day nutrition, performance and life challenge. It is based on principles of the Paleolithic Diet, modern day life, science, and practical experience. This isn’t  just a competition; it’s a springboard for incorporating healthy practices into your life and holding yourself accountable.

During the 30 days of this challenge, you are expected to be “strict” and not stray from the guidelines.  This means, no grains, no dairy, no legumes, no sugar, and limited alcohol  consumption…Not only do you need to have some self-discipline to carry through on this endeavor, but it is also an exercise in character. Everything is published to the group, and only  you will know if you are being honest.

In addition to modifying your nutrition, we will expect that you optimize your training, sleep, and recovery to ensure that you are maximizing the impact of this change in all aspects of your  life.

Judging the Contest.

All areas below will count for your final score.  Qualified Judges (e.g. two CFH coaches and one outsourced judge) will complete judging.

  1. Before (Day 1) and After (Day 30) photos (Qualitative)
  2. Before and After InBody Scans (Quantitative)
  3. Total Accumulated Points (Quantitative; see below)


1 point for each meal that is Paleo compliant (Max 3 per day)

1 point for training or active recovery (rest days count as long as you work on a skill, take a walk, or Yoga class)

1 point for proper hydration (6+ 8-ounce glass of water)

1 point for proper sleep (7+ hours)

Maximum Points per day = 6

Buy – In. There is more motivation from the fear of losing something…bottom-line.  The Buy-In is $125 (includes 2 Body Scans). Don’t Freak Out!! You will get $50 of this back IF you complete the program (meaning journaling your food, participating all 30 days, and completing both body scans/photos).  If you drop out completely, your $$ will be forfeited.  Our goal with this is to keep all of you in the game from start to finish!
