3 Reasons Why You Should Participate In A Nutrition ChallengeI think we can all agree that nutrition is an important element to health and wellbeing. And, improving the way you eat can sometimes feel like a lonely road, considering the numerous temptations surrounding us. Going through change with a group increases motivation and accountability and success. We share ideas, cheer each other on, and encourage one another through the loneliest of moments. Together, we can achieve more. Many of us rely on sugars, processed foods, and starches to get through our day. These foods taste good. These foods are temporarily satisfying. These foods are convenient! However, these foods can also lead to addictions, disease, disrupt our hormone balance, and deter us from foods with more nutritional value. Eliminating potentially irritating and inflammatory foods for just 40 days can greatly shift your awareness of what you put in your mouth. Forty days is enough to create lasting change in your habits. What if you could rid yourself of cravings and reduce toxins, while gaining a greater appreciation of where your food comes from and how it’s prepared? What would that mean to you to better nourish your body and mind? Benefits often include: more energy, greater focus, weight-loss, clear skin, GI healing, autoimmune relief and a deeper connection to your food. Three reasons why you should participate in a nutrition challenge:
- Performance! It’s not just about better food choices. Better food choices can lead to better life performance and overall wellbeing.
- Community! The yoga community is strong. Why not use that strength to improve your nutrition habits as well? Support, help, tips and encouragement are easy to find if you REACH OUT!
- Friendly competition! Make your 40 Days to Personal Revolution FUN.

It should taste great, be satisfying, unite your friends and family and most importantly, food should support your health! Our bodies function, perform and thrive as a result of the NUTRIENTS we give it. It is Shannon’s belief that we can’t outsmart nature when it comes to nutrients and thus our foods should be those sourced closest to the Earth.
