IGNITE! Bootcamp Portal

Hey Challenger!
Welcome to……THE PORTAL!!

The RVC Portal is loaded with videos and articles to support your Challenge efforts! Whether you’re going Paleo, Zone or hitting the MACROS, you’ll find information to guide your efforts, and of course, the RVC Coaching crew stands ready to fill in any gaps, answer every question, and keep you motivated as you move towards your goals!

A couple things to highlight: in the Portal, you’ll find a Nutrition video with Coach Nick, discussing Paleo, Zone and MACROs regimens, as well as MASSIVE pdfs on Paleo eating, including a 6-week menu, complete with shopping lists and recipes!! Further, the Zone is covered in yet another article, courtesy of our friends at CrossFit HQ; you’ll even find a huge Zone portioning list, outlining the block counts for a ton of foods, as well as easy, delicious menus for quick Paleo snacks and meals. And the list goes on.

In short, there’s a ton of information here, and if you’re unsure about which category to commit to, we recommend you start by watching the videos, and definitely check in with a Coach. But a few quick thoughts:

  • Weighing, measuring & portioning food is worth the effort, and will yield AMAZING results; if you’re shooting for a significant change in body composition and can commit to consistency here, we highly recommend MACROS or Zone regimens. (Don’t forget: you MUST have an Accubody scan & the My Fitness Pal app!)
  • On that note, MACROS offers a flexible method of calorie control. If you want to play the weighing & measuring game, but it’s your first time, MACROS might be the best place to start.
  • If you are willing to do anything necessary to reach a specific goal, then Zone it all the way, baby! The Zone, while requiring portioning of every meal, is a stellar regimen for significant body composition changes, in addition to teaching good portioning habits.
  • If you want big change, but can’t commit to weighing & measuring, then hit Paleo for awesome results, especially if you’ve never omitted dairy, grains & legumes before. You’ll note a decrease in bloat within days!

Regardless of what category you choose, making any change to your current eating routine WILL offer positive results. And remember that we’re only committing to 6 weeks; you can go back to “normal” in June…. If you want to. But don’t be surprised if these 6 weeks completely change the way you think about food and your body. Good luck!

Keep in mind, no matter what nutrition plan you undertake for your Nutrition Challenge, there is only one way to make sure it works! It starts with consistency, then total calories in/out, what those calories are made of (% carb/fat/protein), and lastly how you time them. See the hierarchy of nutrition below.
