Congratulations on all of the dedicated time, preparation, and will power performed during the last five weeks (six, if you include the education week)! We really appreciate all of you participating and supporting one another along the way.

If you missed it, we posted a blogpost with some advice on how to approach the completion of the nutrition challenge! If you participated, you should’ve received an e-mail with a link to a survey to fill out. Remember why you decided to eat cleanly in the first place and that should be your motivation to continue the good habits you’ve been practicing.

Great job everybody! See you at the gym!
