Who is interested in an AMAW/CAMAW Challenge either 2/26/2018 - 3/2/2918 OR 3/5/2018 - 3/9/2018 (5 days)? I can run it either week so if you are interested please respond with your preferred week (most votes wins).

The rules (copied from when Daisydoo02 ran it early last year - Thanks Daisy!):


Condiments are allowed: bbq sauce, ketchup, mustard, mayo, spaghetti sauce, butter, salad dressing etc etc
Drink all your normal drinks as you would on a regular day, coffee, tea, water with flavorings, Miralax/Restoralax. This challenge is just about your meals & snacks, liquids should stay the same
Two options to choose from:

AMAW = All Meat All Week meat option - whenever you eat a meal or a snack you eat meat, ex. the flesh of cow/pig/chicken/seafood (yes any seafood is considered meat) NO DAIRY
CAMAW = Critter and Meat All Week option - whenever you eat a meal or snack you eat meat & critter (critter is considered: protein shakes, yogurt, cheese, eggs and for those that use milk or cream in your coffee you fall into the Critter)
On Sunday morning, take your stats, weigh yourself, take your bust/waist/hips measurements (ONLY IF YOU WANT) and for fun to see by the end of the week if there are any changes, this is your personal info, not meant to share on here (unless you want to)!!

Post our AMAW & CAMAW menu's and pictures either on the regular "What's on the menu today RNYers" OR "Whatcha Eating Today VSGers?" threads. This challenge is open to ALL OHers, RNY, VSG, DS, pre ops, whoever wants to get off those damn carbs!!

At the end of the week I will go through and choose an AMAW King or Queen and a CAMAW King or Queen.

I will cross-post this on the RNY, DS, and VSG forums - you only need to reply to one of the posts.

I can do CAMAW either week, as that it all I have been doing anyway. Still having an issue with the few cooked veggies I like that I can have. So...Let me know which to do.
