WLC Reference Guide: Rules, Meal Plans, and Resources

The Whole Life Challenge kicks off this Saturday! While I’m sure you’ve read the rules and are generally prepared, here is a compilation of some links and resources to help serve as a handy reference guide for the next 8 weeks.

Daily Play, aka The Rules

The Rules
How Points Work
The Lifestyle Category
What can I eat? Beginner | Intermediate | Advanced | Vegetarian
Note: the above lists are NOT comprehensive of the “yes” category. In general, if it isn’t explicitly in the NO category, it is okay.

The “Low Carb Flu”

You embarked on the WLC because you want to feel great, right? What to do if those first few days have you feeling a little less than awesome? Read these articles about the low carb flu to make sure you are prepared.

The Low Carb “Flu”
Managing Carb Cravings (aka getting over the “flu”!)

Food Miscellaneous

Meal Plans

8 weeks of meal plans, complete with grocery lists and prep instructions. They are roughly structured to have one big cooking day with minimal cooking the remainder of the week. They should serve roughly two people (scale accordingly). There are no recipe repeats, so check them out to get plenty of ideas!

Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6 | Week 7 | Week 8

Additionally, the vast majority of the recipes on this blog are WLC-compliant, or easily made so with a few tweaks.

A Few of my Favorite Things

Some of my favorite, “go-to” recipes are the following:

Slow Cooker Cheater Pork Stew from Nom Nom Paleo
