Welcome to the Fuel for Fall Performance Nutrition Challenge Blog.  We’re down to the last week! Congrats on making it this far. Hang in there, only a handful of days left!

This week, we will focus on developing eating habits that support your goals.

Your bonus challenge for Thursday, November 3rd, is to try to make it through the day without snacking. Eat the same amount of food, i.e. same amount of calories but eat them all in three square meals. This might give you some insight into how you’ve been able to change your metabolism and insulin sensitivity. Generally speaking, the more metabolically flexible you’ve become over the course of the challenge, the less problems you should have going 4-6 hours without eating.  If you find it hard, it’s ok, figure out what works for you now and stick to it for a while, and then try again in a few months.
