I am starting the thread SUPER early to accommodate the following 3 must have rules before the initial start of the challenge:

1. Visit your doctor. Request a physical and blood work. Find out areas where you are deficient and address them. If you have had blood work done in 2016 and already know your stats...cool beans. Skip ahead.
