Nutritional Challenge of the Week:
Step 2: Start Giving Up the Crap
Sorry, it had to start sometime.
Give up carbonated and sweetened drinks. You can give them up in stages if needed. Cut back to two a day, one a day, one every other day, and so on. Continue until you only drink water, coffee and unsweetened tea.
Stop grazing on stuff brought into the office. That’s not for you anymore. You’re choosing a different lifestyle that doesn’t include sucking down anything anyone puts in front of you. You’re going to be different. Your peers will start to notice. Get used to that idea.
At this point, you can still go out to lunch and eat whatever you want, but soda and its solid equivalent (candy bars, cookies and other sweets) are relegated to cheat days only.
Oh, by the way, have a cheat meal once a week. This could even be a cheat day if your compliance is very good. However, I don’t recommend a full cheat weekend. You can undo a lot of your five days of progress with two days of shoveling poop into your mouth.

Re-cap: So, now this week you are eating protein with every meal, eating breakfast, and NOT drinking soda or it’s solid equivalent! Have fun with week 2! Stay Strong everybody!
