3 Week Down & Dirty (to clean eating) Challenge Registration

3 Week DOWN & DIRTY (to clean eating) Challenge
May 20 - June 10, 2017

This is NOT my typical challenge and may not be for everyone.

There will be no points or charts to record each day for motivation.
Just a list of suggested food ideas, water intake and daily exercise.
We will report WEIGHT LOSS each week and I will provide results each week. 
I hope that is incentive enough.
I know it will be for me! I'm ready.

You do NOT need a team. You will compete as an individual.
Registration is $30 with $20 going into the pot.
We will have 1-2 male and female winners depending on how many sign up!

THE REGISTRATION LINK IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST.

Here are the suggestions to follow for this challenge:

Eating whole foods/real foods ONLY
(meaning foods in their whole form or closest to whole form...links below)
Suggestion to allow 2 cheats per week to keep you sane.
Suggested 50-64 ounces of water per day.
Exercise daily or every other day if high intensity interval training.

There are different suggestions for following a whole foods diet.
Here are the two links I am suggesting basing your food off of for the next 3 weeks.

I love the part about if it is packaged, wrapped or boxed it needs to have less than 5 ingredients that you can pronounce and read!!
