How You Can Create a Healthy Lifestyle

You may be asking yourself, "So what do I do now?" Setting up a new healthy lifestyle requires planning and dedication. Switching to a diet and going all-in to start can help you set up a new program. Following a routine and fitness regimen will set up new goals and tracking these goals can help you stay accountable through your program.

Meal Plan Release

Now is the time to prep for the start of the 2018 Healthier U Challenge. We are proud to release our 2 meal plans. No matter your initial diet level goal, or your diet path, you have what you need to be successful from start to finish. Study it, print it out, save it to your smartphone, and get started.

It’s all about the journey, not the outcome. Carl Lewis | Olympic Gold Medalist
Struggles – I think one of the biggest things I learned is that it’s okay to have a bad meal but not a bad day! There were a couple of times when I really wanted to eat something bad and couldn’t fight through it. When I did eat something bad, it made me strong enough to say no the next time the opportunity presented itself and not be completely defeated by the mistake. Going on to eat something healthy the next day made me realize I could keep going even though I made a mistake. Keep STRONG! You can do it! Nicole Eddy
I learned so many different recipes after being in a rut of mostly the same foods for the past 15 years or so. I lost weight and feel so much better, I think mostly from cutting out dairy and most white carbs. I’m planning to stick with it and to continue using the recipes to keep me on track. Overall, I would say it was a success! Lisa Procopio
This Challenge was a great start to regain my athletic attitude and reignite my competitive nature. It has allowed me to refocus me priorities and has launched me into a new phase of nutritional focus. It’s all good! Moving forward, I plan to reach that goal I wasn’t able to reach during the Challenge. I’m assisting a friend with her difficult journey of significant weight loss to achieve a healthier lifestyle. I will continue through some struggles, but ultimately, I will succeed. Joan Fagan

Pushing Past Fads and Finding Your Why

Understanding why you are doing something is just as important and understanding what you are doing. Fad diets focus on the "what". Lifestyles are built on the foundation of understanding "why". Why do you want to change? Why does this new way of eating work, and how can I live like this? Your why starts here. This article is part of our Nutrition-U series, which you gained access to when you registered for the Challenge.
I really enjoyed the recipes in this Challenge!! I didn’t miss grains or dairy during the 5 weeks… I plan to continue the Paleo menu after the Challenge ends. I noticed the bloating in my belly went down, and I feel better from the inside out! I also really liked how the meal prep used the leftovers from dinner for lunch the next day, and how it made weekly meals easier to prepare for people with busy schedules. My husband, who LOVES dairy and grains originally complained when he found out there wouldn’t be any of both foods for 5 weeks, but he felt satisfied with the food from the meal plan without them. Valerie Delp
As I enter into the last week of the Challenge I have had a couple major personal breakthroughs. First of all, I realized with total dedication I made huge strides in my weight at diet level 1. I also realized that even though I am not 100% where I want to be, I allowed myself to be vulnerable by letting myself be videotaped and have my photo posted on our team’s Facebook page. That person who allowed her body to be shown or her lower level of fitness to be out there for others to see? That is the new me. I’m personally very proud of that. My daughters were proud of me. If I got nothing else from this, I feel a confidence that I never have before in my life. Jamie Schuller
You have to believe in yourself when no one else does – that makes you a winner right there… Venus Williams | Olympic Gold Medalist and Professional Tennis Player
To uncover your true potential, you must first find your own limits and then you have to have the courage to blow past them. Picabo Street | Alpine Ski Racer
