- Join our Facebook and/or Instagram Community!
- Like our “10 Pound Challenge” Facebook page and/or Instagram page where we post daily tips, answer questions, and provide unique motivational and learning experiences to help you feel accountable and committed.
- Wondering about Nutrition?
- Every year, we do a post-challenge survey and get lots of great feedback. These surveys tell us people want fun workouts, motivation, and accountability. They also tell us people want nutrition help; but want everything from customized (gluten free, cooking for 6, cooking for 1, food allergies, no time, no money, snack/no snack? etc) to simplistic, basic nutrition info. Some people need structure, some people need small bites (pun intended :).
- Ask yourself what type of nutrition support you really need (structure or small bites), then try one (or all) of these strategies to tackle your nutrition:
- Take nutrition one day at a time, with us, as we post daily nutrition tips and challenges in the app on on social media.
- Need structure? Purchase one of Melanie’s structured meal plans here (complete with groceries, recipes and carefully planned nutrient profiles – plus yummy, easy, family-friendly foods!)
- Find/use your own meal plan – one that works for you and your family’s unique needs and circumstances.
- Email Melanie Douglass, R.D., with your nutritional questions. She’s happy to help, anytime.
- Do the most important thing of all: make at least one positive nutritional change! (Cut the soda, reduce portions, eat more protein, eat more veggies, cut late-night snacks… all of these are positive changes).
