The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

The Whole Life Challenge is not going to ask you to give up all of your favorite foods. It’s going to change how you relate to your favorite foods. You might even find yourself indulging in them during the Challenge. Which, believe it or not, is okay. It’ll cost you a point, but it’s okay. It’s always up to you.

The world around you is not going to be different just because you did this Challenge. Temptations will still be there. You’ll still really like molten center chocolate cake. But when you’re done with the Challenge, you’ll know how to face hard choices and make the ones that leave you feeling fantastic.

New Call-to-action

We know that “healthy dessert” is kind of an oxymoron, but you’re not only going to discover amazing, actually-good-for-you desserts during this Challenge, you’ll learn how to enjoy your old favorites in a whole new way.

This whipped coconut cream is a WLC stand-by, and if you leave out the coconut crystals (it’s still good, we promise), this recipe will work for any Challenge level.

Michael Stanwyck is the co-founder of The Whole Life Challenge, an idea that developed during his seven years as a coach and gym manager at CrossFit Los Angeles.

He graduated from UCLA with a BA in philosophy as well as a degree from the Southern California School of Culinary Arts, and feels food is one of the most important parts of a life - it can nourish, heal, and bring people together.

Michael believes health and well-being are as much a state of mind as they are a state of the body, and when it comes to fitness, food, and life in general, he thinks slow is much better than fast (most of the time). Stopping regularly to examine things is the surest way to put down roots and grow.

He knows he will never be done with his own work, and believes the best thing you can do for your well-being starts with loving and working from what you’ve got right now.
