The Coastal 8WSC is a great way to not only reduce the sugar in your diet, but to also learn the basic principles of nutrition in a safe and nurturing environment.
What do we learn in the challenge?
The major point of the challenge is to provide a foundational knowledge of basic nutrition so that you can apply the skills to situations now and in the future. Each week we tackle a different topic, exploring it's history, myths, current research and dietary recommendations.
Week 1: Introduction to Nutrition & Label reading
Week 2: Dietary Fats
Week 3: Dietary Carbohydrates/Sugar
Week 4: Dietary Protein
Week 5: Fasting
Week 6: Exercise
Week 7: Gut Health
Week 8: Quiz & Questions
Do you provide a meal plan?
No. Because the structure of the challenge where we focus on one macronutrient each week, we simply get you to focus on making that change in your current diet. If we provide a meal plan for you, you won't be as likely to learn or to carry the information forward to other situations down the line. We are here throughout the entire challenge to assist with meal ideas and ingredient swaps and to help you modify your own diet.
