What is the nutrition/diet philosophy?

The Gunnar Challenge promotes the principle of energy balance and uses a 1200-calorie meal plan with delicious, easy-to-make recipes to get you optimal results in 8 weeks. Vegetarian options are also included. No food is forbidden, but we do encourage you to eat nutritious foods in sensible-size portions. You don’t have to follow the menu exactly, but if you do substitute foods, make sure to substitute them with foods of equivalent nutritional value.

We also encourage you to stick to your personal daily calorie target. If you find that you need extra calories to get through your day, the meal plan includes hunger busters to help you get those calories from healthy food options.

But what are the meals like?

They’re awesome! The meal plan even includes treats and dining out options to help you learn how to include these foods in your diet as part of your new, healthy lifestyle. Check out these sample recipes below:
