You heard us right. Your challenge today is to empty your desk, cupboards, fridge, freezer, car, and secret snack stash drawer of foods and drinks you shouldn’t be eating. If you want to reach your fitness goal by summer, prevent temptation by removing all junk food from your house. If the packaged foods are unopened, donate them. Read the labels, if a food has un-pronounceable additives or anything ending in -ose (that’s sugar), it goes.
If you find when you are finished that your bag is more than half full, you might want to reconsider your shopping and snacking habits. We know you spent good money on those Ding Dongs and Sriracha Doritos, but they are doing the opposite of helping you reach your health and fitness goals. Those “foods” are just plain bad for you. If throwing them away seems like a daunting task, try these 6 tips to kick the junk food habit. When your next junk food craving strikes, reach for Shakeology® or one of these 23 easy snacks under 150 calories.
