Getting Started...
Something bad must've happened.

The things we eat are making us tired and making us sick. Caffeine, refined sugars, meat, and booze are great in moderation — and delicious, right? — but Americans eat them in such overabundance that we’re dying of heart disease and diabetes at record rates. We all know we need to cut back, but we also know cutting back is really, really hard.

That’s where the Method Challenge comes in. Here we’ve pulled together all the tools, resources and inspiration you need to change the way you live in one month, and the support you need to keep the change up.

It’s 30 days, one day at a time, until we’re all healthier, together.

These six things will change your life.




According to the American Heart Association, being more active lowers blood pressure, lessens stress and anxiety, helps boost your immune system and even sharpens your mind. Seriously. It makes you smarter.


Drinking is fun. It's okay to admit that. In moderation, it can stave off heart disease. But alcohol is also a toxin that’s hard on your liver, suppresses fat oxidation, impedes weight loss. Taking a 30-day break will jump-start all that exercising you’re about to do.


What can we even say about sugar that you don’t already know? Pastries, right? But refined sugars elevate triglycerides, lower good cholesterol and create blood glucose spikes that lead to energy crashes.


Caffeine is so awesome, people are always trying to ban it (see: 17th century Ethiopia; modern-day Four Loko). It's an antioxidant and may reduce cancer risk, but it also disrupts metabolism, messes with sleep patterns and tells your body to store fat.


Meat, cheese and eggs are delicious — just ... delicious — but doctors and nutritionists at places like the National Cancer Institute and the Mayo Clinic say cutting down on eating animals leads to a longer life. And although cutting meat, eggs and dairy completely is ideal, cutting back is great too.

*including eggs, milk and all other dairy


Gluten is what helps most breads and baked goods stick together and taste delicious, and for that we're eternally grateful! But gluten can also cause bone and joint pain, digestive problems, autoimmune disorders, headaches and lethargy. Nix it and see how good you feel!

*Gluten is a protein naturally found in wheat, barley, rye and most oats.

There’s no time like the present!

EXERCISE
Get out and make your blood pump. Walk, ball, lift, whatever. Just do it every day.

ALCOHOL
Alcohol is a toxin that, besides being hard on your liver, suppresses fat oxidation and hampers weight loss.

GLUTEN
Gluten is what helps most breads and baked goods stick together, but can also cause bone and joint pain, autoimmune disorders, headaches and lethargy.

SUGAR
Refined sugars can elevate your triglycerides, lower good cholesterol and create blood glucose spikes that lead to energy crashes.

Caffeine
Caffeine triggers cortisol — which is like an air raid siren that disrupts metabolism and tells your body to store fat — messes with sleep patterns and makes the body more acidic.

ANIMALS
Doctors and nutritionists say cutting down on eating animals leads to a longer life. Although cutting out animals completely is ideal, cutting back is great too.
