Nutritious Nuggets: Reboot Challenge Winners!

The Reboot Challenge is complete and the results are in. For all of those who participated awesome work!  During the last five weeks, the challenge participants followed the Whole30 Program and practiced daily habits to help build a better mindset around nutrition and health. Mastering small habits at a time is what helps make your nutrition habits sustainable which leads to lasting changes and results. Many reported upping their cooking game as well by attending our Meal Prep 101 class and our Healthy Cooking Class with Clean Plate Club Atl. 

“I’ve finally nailed meal prepping.” ~ Jessica

” I loved it! I learned how to cook and learned so many good recipes I will continue to make. I have really increased my vegetable and fruit intake.” ~ Kris

” My husband and I have been cooking together more than ever and it’s been fun to try new recipes.” ~ Rohini

“I have finally gotten the hang of meal prepping! I am also sleeping better which increased my willingness and ability to make it to the gym in the mornings.” ~ Jill

While there were a lot of physical changes participates also have reported things like increased energy, better sleep, making better choices while eating out, and overall better mindset around food. That’s what it’s all about folks!

The overall results are outstanding. Out of the 53 finishers in just five short weeks, There was a total of 179 pounds of fat lost. Great work y’all!

While the challengers did a great job sticking to the Whole30 program the Reboot is way more than what to eat and what not to eat.  We also practiced daily challenges such as no social media, meditation, and spending time with friends, and drinking more water. All of these practices encourage you to view your health holistically and to learn how all these things impact your nutrition.

“In the past when traveling for work I would have continued eating poorly when returning home. This time I was able to quickly make changes when I returned. I am learning to add vegetables to everything.” ~Rachel

“I made a conscious choice to enjoy some chips and salsa…and for my next meal I picked right back up on Whole30. This helped me find the balance I need to sustain. ~Joey

“I’ve notices that I’ve got a better mindset. For example, if I make a “mistake” on one meal I’m not giving up on the rest of my meals.” ~ Madison

“I’ve learned to make better choices when I go out to eat.” ~ Lisa

” I have a lot more energy throughout the day. I started reading labels and realized how much sugar is in everything!” ~ Dana

” I used to eat out a TON. I have gotten used to cooking more and feel so much better!” ~ Kelly

These practices are so important to learn so you do not go on a downward spiral if you feel like you have eaten something “bad.” Challengers really learned that if you make a choice that is not in line with your goals that doesn’t mean all is lost. Instead, changing their mindset to pick right back up and keep going; persistence over perfection!

We all increased our Kitchen IQ in our Meal Prep class with Coach Maddie and Cooking Class with our very own Michelle S., owner of Clean Plate Club Atl. We indulged in delicious recipes that were so tasty participants stated they plan to continue to add these meals even after the challenge was complete.

You have likely heard one of your FitWit coaches tell you that what you do in the kitchen can either enhance or destroy all that hard work you put in at the gym. Nutrition makes up to 80% of your body composition, and what you fuel your body with matters. Cooking gives you the most control over what you eat! Whether you participated in the Reboot or not we are here to help support, educate, and challenge you with your nutrition. Be on the look out for more information on our new FitWit Nutrition Plans! These programs provide accountability and meet you where your nutrition needs are currently.
