You remember the college days, right? The lecture halls, the library, the sprawling green lawn, essays, and all night study sessions. And let’s not forget the crappy food you fueled up on get your through those memorable years: pizza, Ramen, burgers, beer, and probably more beer. You may have been your university’s Bluto or Frank the Tank.
It’s never a wrong time to kick back a bottle of Jack for Bluto.
And we all know how good it is “once it hits your lips.” Ain’t that right, Frank?
You could go that way, but here’s some motivation for you if you’re just trying out this Paleo gig.
Mateo, our diehard member over the summer that returned to college back in August, is eating clean and CrossFitting. Despite all the difficulties and temptations to just totally let his hard work over the summer go down the drain, he’s making it happen.
The gym at his school isn’t the greatest, no kettlebells and limited pull-up bars, but he makes it work and can now bang out double-unders. And forget about frozen burritos in the microwave for dinner, or bagels for breakfast. Mateo is whipping up some eggs, bacon, and muffins made from eggs, almond meal, apples, and mashed bananas.
Solid work, Mateo! Give him a shout out in the comments.
Give it an honest shot and see where this Nutrition Challenge takes you. Good luck!
