Welcome to the Daily Dozen Challenge! The Daily Dozen Challenge was created to help more people discover how easy it is to fit some of the healthiest of healthy foods into their daily routine.

I’m kicking it off by publicly challenging three of my friends and you to try to check off all the Daily Dozen servings for one day based on my Daily Dozen checklist. Then you challenge more people, and on and on, and soon lots of people will be eating healthy!

My challengees are:

See my video Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen Checklist for more information on what recommendations are part of the Daily Dozen. And check out a bunch of the videos people have done so far over on our YouTube playlist

How to Participate:

  • Accept the Challenge

    Pick a day to eat the Daily Dozen, and then release your own public announcement asking others to do it.

  • Post a picture or video about your experience and tagging 3 more people to challenge them

    Use the hashtags #HowNotToDie and #DailyDozenChallenge in your announcement post and ask others to do the same. Let people know they can track their Daily Dozen on our free iPhone and Android apps. You can challenge 3 people personally, or ask all of your friends!

    App Store   Google Play

  • Donate

    If you or your “challengees” are unable to complete the Daily Dozen challenge you can ask them to consider donating $12 to help spread this life-changing life-saving info to others.

If you don’t have it yet, my new cookbook has tons of green-light recipes to help reach the Daily Dozen (all of the proceeds from my books go to charity).

I hope you’ll join in the evidence-based nutrition revolution!
