HEC Week 4 or the absence of bacon
This week we eliminate pork, so not only is the weather getting gloomier and bread is gone from our diets, we eliminate pork products. Good Luck men. Stay Strong.
Week 1 (and on)
No Fried Food
No Fast Food (inc. Pizza)
No processed snacks like Potato Chips, Candy Bars, Etc. (a post will be coming with good alternatives)
No Sodas or Sweet Tea
No Cheeses (including shredded, feta, or slices. Get it off your sandwiches and salads)(Cottage cheese will be allowed)
No Cream Based Sauces/Dressings (This Includes Fat Free Options for Ranch, Caesar, Alfredo, Etc.)
This leaves many food and drink items available – no one will go hungry! Just eat/drink better.
You will receive ONE free pass per week – this could be a steak dinner, a pizza, etc. – no carryovers though, the pass can only be used that week – try to use your weekly pass in moderation.
And just so you can plan ahead with groceries, here are the cumulative challenges:
Week 2 (and on) – No Red Meat
Week 3 (and on) – No Breads
Week 4 (and on) – No Pork
