50-Day Challenge Note:
This Challenge will test your ability to track and record your food intake. It is a 50-Day learning experience. Many folks out there grossly overestimate how well they are doing with their nutrition. This Challenge will give you concrete data on how well you're covering you nutrients on a daily basis. It won't be easy. But the value of tracking your food, even for a short time, can set you up for success indefinitely.
There will be days when you do not hit your nutrients. Use this as a learning experience rather than trying to jam spinach down your throat at 11:55pm. For example, lets say on Day 2 I come up short on my potassium and my zinc markers. That night, I can go back to the blog and look at good sources of both of those minerals. I can look to see if there are any foods that are sources of BOTH of those minerals and plan on eating that food the next day for lunch.
Eventually, when you are consistently hitting your nutrients, you can build weekly menus in advance with the confidence of knowing you're getting everything you need.
This Challenge will answer the question of "What do I eat?" We sometimes get caught up thinking in terms of macros (protein, fat, carbs) but it's crucial to remember that the micronutrients are just as important.
Right now, you can get ahead of the game by familiarizing yourself with the Cronomoter app and beginning to make a list of foods you like that are also vitamin/mineral dense. You'll notice that the many of the foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals cover a variety of vitamins and minerals. Start with these foods (dark leafy greens, sweet potato, grass fed meat, fruits, beans) and work from there.
