What the heck is the Whole Life Challenge anyway?

Every year, people *say* they want to lose weight, but then never actually do anything about it. They swear in January to get that bikini bod by June, but it just doesn’t happen. Why?

1. You don’t know how.

The Whole Life Challenge spells out exactly what you should or shouldn’t eat, encourages daily exercise, and challenges you each week to change just one part of your lifestyle for the better. One of the most common responses we got from last year’s challenge was “I finally realize what I’m putting into my body!”

2. You’re not accountable.

Each day, you’ll have the opportunity to earn up to 5 points for a perfect diet. Each time you eat something not approved for your level, you subtract 1 point. During the challenge, we’ll be sharing recipes for WLC-Approved meals, giving tips and tricks for your grocery shopping, and having WLC-friendly potlucks!

3. You’re not consistent.

The greatest part about the WLC is the most points you can lose on any one day is 5- so when the sun rises the next day, you get right back on the wagon and keep earning points! This contest awards *consistency* over the entire 8 weeks…going all-in for the first half and doing nothing for the second half will NOT get you the results you want!

If you’ve been looking for the chance to FINALLY lose those extra inches off your waist, this is it. I can’t wait to see you all at the end.
