Welcome to the “No Junk Food November” 30-Day Challenge! This month-long journey is all about making a positive change in your life by saying goodbye to unhealthy junk food and embracing a healthier lifestyle. Are you ready to take on this empowering challenge? Let’s get started!
The goal of the “No Junk Food November” challenge is simple: avoid consuming any junk food for the entire month. Junk food includes those tempting, but unhealthy, treats high in sugar, unhealthy fats, and processed ingredients. By eliminating these foods from your diet, you’ll be paving the way for better health, increased energy levels, and positive habits that can last a lifetime.
You may also choose to limit your junk food intake down to only one portion per day if you currently have a diet high in junk foods.
How to Prepare:
Before we begin, take some time to prepare for this transformative experience. Clean out your pantry and fridge of any junk food temptations and make space for nourishing alternatives. Plan your meals ahead of time and stock up on wholesome fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains to fuel your body throughout the challenge.
Guidelines and Rules:
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the guidelines and rules of the challenge. This includes defining what qualifies as junk food, setting a start and end date for the 30-day challenge, and considering any special circumstances, like social gatherings, that may arise during the month. **Check out the ranges of foods that are considered junk food from the cheat sheet, sourced from the Australian Eat for Health Dietary Guidelines at this link:
