Welcome to GreatistYou, a new social experiment where we see what happens when five people decide to change their health—and broadcast their journeys for everyone to see. Four goals, five contestants, and six weeks to crush said goals for the promise of a better life (oh, and $1,000!).


This weekend, Brandon went to his first farmer’s market ever! He’s venturing into the world fresh food and getting away from the fast kind. It’s a step in the right direction—assuming he didn’t take home those delicious pies they sell on the side.

Brandon is going to spend the next six weeks controlling his meal portions and hitting the gym in hopes of losing 12 pounds. Heads up: Brandon is a self-described potty-mouth, but he promised to keep the swearing to a minimum when snapping his profanity-inducing workouts.

Darby and Adrienne

Preparation’s the name of the game, people. Our dynamic duo showed off their treasure trove of healthy food for GreatistYou. They almost blinded us all on Instagram with the sheer amount of green in that shopping cart. To be fair, they’ve got a 10K to train for and don’t have a meal to waste! Both Darby and Adrienne have already started training and are using their allotted six weeks to set up a formal running and nutrition schedule to make sure they don’t run themselves into the ground. (Sorry, we had to.)

Honestly, it looks like Jasmine raided the entire produce section of her local grocery store… but that’s what you’ve got to do when you’re on Whole30 (more on the program here in case you’re curious!). After getting a little too comfortable with her hectic eating schedule in college, Jasmine’s excited to leave sugary granola bars behind and dive into some healthy, delicious meals.

Not to be overdramatic, but you should probably be afraid of Regina. The competition’s barely started, and she’s already in the ring, ready to become a Muay Thai champ. This weekend she completed her first set of three-minute rounds in the ring and is already giving that last-fight-in-Karate-Kid -superhuman-strength vibe. Get it, Regina!
