The OPENutrition Challenge

Eat meat, vegetables and fat at every meal.

Eat 1 to 2 pounds of meat per day, depending on body size.

Focus on eating non-starchy vegetables such as zucchini, mushrooms and broccoli.

Incorporate at least one serving of healthy fat into every meal (1/2 an avocado, a tablespoon of olive oil, etc.)

Plan to eat immediately post-workout, within 2 to 15 minutes afterward.

Tailor your diet to your individual training needs

Once you have followed the basic OPENutrition recommendations, we can tailor your diet to your specific training goals. Determine what your primary fitness goal is. Are you trying to improve your body composition? Are you training for an endurance event? Are you looking to get stronger? Bigger?
