Challenge #1

Hello everyone in the blogosphere!

My name is Josh Singer and yes, while sometimes we will just toss up some primal bullshit for you as Max mentioned, we’re just two pre-college kids making a blog and seeing what happens. At this point, the direction of this blog is unclear, but what we both agree on one thing: staying primal in college is absolutely possible. If you stumble across this blog and are heading off to college take the following challenge on:


For 21 days, cut ALL grain products. This does not just mean pasta and pizza, it’s anything with gluten, so read those package labels carefully.

On top of this, replace all those empty bread calories with healthy, nutritious, leafy greens and colorful vegetables. Every meal should have a strong focus on vegetables. Throughout the week don’t be afraid to experiment with weird sounding veggies you may not have heard of before like leeks (because honestly who really knows what a leek is). If you’re living on campus, even the worst dining halls have some sort of vegetable selection.

Don’t forget the protein guys! Top your cruciferous creation with really any sort of meat, fish, chicken, pork, or what have you, that gives you some great protein. Eggs are also an egg…celent…source of protein. Check the below image for the primal food pyramid to follow:

So, what’s the main idea of this challenge: Instead of making a bee-line for the pizza/pasta bar, venture into the lonely salad bar and make a big ass salad packed with a ton of color and flavor.

Don’t give up in the first week! There will be times when you want to eat that bread, when you REALLY REALLY want to taste the lasagna. DON’T. Give it until the end of the 21 day period and tell me how you feel then. Remember that it’s up to you to do this challenge completely. No one is standing there telling you what to do, so take it upon yourself to really challenge yourself and GO PRIMAL!! grok on!

Signing off.

About The Author


As a recent recent high school graduate, I've seen a lot of kids struggling with health and fitness over my years in school. I went Primal when my physical trainer helped me really focus on my physical well-being in training for my baseball career. I credit a large percentage of my health and well being on and off the baseball field to my Primal lifestyle. An idea came to the my mind to create a website where kids going into college could find great information on health and nutrition as well as functional fitness. I am extremely excited to be able to write about health in the college world, as a lot of times kids forget how to eat healthy when they go off to the college world. While we saw this as an opportunity to reach out to the college world, we also wanted this site to be a resource for people of all ages struggling with their health as a place for them to go and find great resources and information.
