    What to do: Do not eat any processed meats for the next 14 days

    The challenge that you're going to undertake right now is omitting all processed meats from your diet plan. Many people are starting to realize the important of protein in their daily diet but neglect to consider where they're getting that protein from. Turn to the wrong sources and you really won't be doing yourself much better than if you hadn't taken in any at all.

    When you know the right types of protein to be eating however and then make sure to proceed to get those varieties in, that's when you can feel confident moving forward that you're supplying your body with the nutrients it requires.

    Let's take a closer look at what this challenge will consist of so that you can get it straight in your mind what you need to be doing.

    1. Meats To Avoid

    The primary meats that you'll want to avoid include hotdogs, salami, deli ham, pastrami, cured meats and cold cuts. These will contain far too sodium and nitrites to be considered part of a healthy diet plan.

    2. Meats To Eat

    Instead, you need to opt for lean protein sources that are going to supply you with high-quality nutrition. These sources include foods such as lean chicken, turkey breast, lean beef, bison, venison, salmon and other fish, pheasant, ostrich, goose, elk, as well as pork chops.

    These protein sources are high in quality protein, low in saturated fat (many actually contain good fats for the body) and are packed full of zinc, iron, and many other nutrients.

    3. Why Eat More Protein?

    Before leaving off this challenge, it's also important that you fully understand why eating more protein is important. Protein is the one nutrient that is going to supply your body with the materials it needs for rebuilding and repair.

    In addition to this, protein can help to keep your metabolic rate higher as you'll burn off more energy simply breaking it down. Furthermore, protein will help to calm the appetite as it's the food that's digested the slowest and will keep your blood sugar levels stabilized.

    I'm rewarding myself with this easy-for-me challenge. It is so rare for me to even find processed meat that is completely gluten free that this should be simple. (Of course, now that I'm doing the challenge, I'll probably see it everywhere.)
