Right about now, we bet you're wondering where the name "My25" came from, right? There are 2 parts—the "25" and the "My."
1. Eat at least 25 grams of super nutrient fiber each day.
2. Portion your plate at mealtime with 25% lean protein, 25% healthy starch, and 25% fruits and 25% vegetables (or make that 50% of your plate vegetables).
3. Get 25 people (or a bunch) to jump onto this eat-better bandwagon with you because friends and family help create shared responsibility and accountability for your improving health (and theirs!).
4. "My" signifies taking ownership.
