Simon finished up weeks 2 & 3 of his E3Live 30 Day Challenge. He said, “Took 3 big shots of BrainOn. Feeling good, energized and ready to bust the day out like a champ.” He did have some roadblocks along the way with his addiction to nut butters. “Dinner: Went way off track… Had a big acai bowl with granola and strawberries, then had 5 gluten-free vegan pancakes with honey and maple syrup, then went home and had more of the unfinished pancakes with chocolate hazelnut butter, almond butter and another mixed nut’s and seed butter.” Sounds decadent! Now he says his “nut butter binge is all gone….” and at the end of the challenge “you’re gonna see a big transformation.” Looking forward to it!
