WHAT IS IT?
This challenge was designed by OptimizeMe Nutrition. Eat 800 grams (g) or fruits and/or vegetables, by weight, per day.
No foods are eliminated, but only fruits and veggies count toward the 800g. Eat the fruits and veggies or your choice. Hit the macros you want.
Raw, cooked, canned, frozen; doesn’t matter! If you can weigh it as a standalone and unprocessed fruit or vegetable, you can count it. Yep, that’s it! Here’s a one-sheet with all the rules and scoring details.
So why 800g? It’s associated with increased health and is a simplified way to hit those recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. Read more here.
January 7th- February 3rd.
Sign up by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The last day to sign up is Sunday, January 6th at 12:00pm! You WILL NOT be able to sign up after that date.
We will be hosting a meeting to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the challenge. This meeting will be held on Saturday, January 5th at 10:00am at CrossFit Tides.
Cost is $45.
- 2 points are awarded for eating 800 grams of fruits and/or vegetables in a day. You do not get extra points for any amount over 800g.
- 1 additional point is awarded for “diversity”: when 6 or more fruits and/or vegetables are used to hit your daily 800g total (where each of these 6+ items has to have a minimum of 25g). Hitting 800g is a day is a prerequisite to being eligible for this point.
- 1 point is also awarded for working out at CrossFit Tides (max 5 points per week). A run on your own or workout in your home gym does. not. count.
We will award one month of free membership to the person with the highest point total at the end of the 4 weeks. We’ll also have a few runner-up prizes.
