Accept the challenge and ditch sugar for 5 days.

GOAL FOR THE NEXT 5 DAYS:

  • Learn how to find natural, sustainable ways to please your sweet tooth. I am on a mission to arm you with the facts and tools that will help you ditch your daily dependence on added sugars and sweeteners that are found in most processed foods.

OUTCOMES

  • You’ll be able to see how you physically and mentally respond to a substantual reduction in the added sugar you consume.
  • You’ll also see just how much processed food you are eating and that you could easily replace them with more natural foods.

FOODS TO AVOID

  • No products with ADDED sugar. *Yes, this may include some  "healthy" protein bars, protein shakes and some nut butters. 
  • Remember the target of this mission is to reduce added sugar, not sugars naturally occurring in foods. Nearly all food has some amount of natural sugar in it – those are fine. The landmine is added sugar or sweetners. *TIP:  Check the ingredient list and see if sugar or sweetener has been added.

Sugar goes by many aliases. Read the ingredients portion of food labels as well and be on the look out these added sweeteners such as these:

  • Saccharine
  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Evaporated cane juice
  • Aspartame
  • Hydrogenated starch
  • Invert sugar maltose
  • Mannitol
  • Crystalline fructose...to name a few.
