Every day you will be challenged to live by these rules, and earn up to 6 points daily:
- Nutrition – No grains or starches (including corn and soy), no sugar (artificial or natural), no alcohol, soda or juice, no dairy and no artificial or processed foods. You can earn up to 3 points maximum for each day of nutrition. Violate one of your rules and subtract 1 point. The lowest score you can get on any day is 0.
- Workout – Every day. The rule is 10 minutes minimum, and you get to say if it was a workout for you. You will receive 1 point for working out.
- Mobilization – Stretch daily, 10 minutes minimum. You can do this any way you want. You will receive 1 point for stretching/mobilizing.
- Fish oil – A daily dose of fish oil. There is no minimum, but research suggests 4000mg combination of EPA/DHA per day.
