The Viva Fresh Clean Eating Challenge, hosted by the Texas International Produce Association (TIPA) is a voluntary wellness program meant to improve your overall health and well-being through diet and exercise. TIPA is not authorized to provide medical advice or direction and you should speak with a physician before participating in any diet or exercise program especially if you have not participated in a physical activity program for several years or if you have been diagnosed with any of the following: cardiovascular disease, cancer (recently or currently in treatment), lung disease such as COPD or asthma, diabetes, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis or are taking any immunosuppressant medication.
This program will remain voluntary throughout its duration and will provide access to tools and resources, as well as best practices including eating more fruits and vegetables and getting 10,000 steps per day. Resources suggested may include workouts, recipes, meal plans and expert or peer support but TIPA makes no claims to the validity of these resources for each individual and expectations should include the fact that results may vary.
All information you provide here and throughout the challenge is confidential unless you opt in as a featured participant or to have your information shared as part of group data only.
This program is free of cost and there is no charge to join or participate other than any additional medical or other related resources you would choose to secure on your own.
