  • They’ll challenge you to take one new step each week. Not just that they will take the challenge themselves each week.
  • Matt and Joe will report how they did with each challenge. You can learn along with them as they experience their own successes and failures

Challenge #5: Avoid Packaged Foods with Trans Fats

  • Trans fats are often consumed without much knowledge
  • Everyday habits are built through awarenress
    • You control your habits, don’t allow yourself to be put into situations that limit your healthy choices
  • Often we are put into situations where healthy options aren’t always available
    • It is our personal responsibility to keep ourselves in check and find new ways to bring healthy options to our lives
