Challenge: No added sugar/sugar substitutes for 30 days
Start Date: September 1, 2018
Why eliminate sugar?
Sugar is one of the most harmful and addictive “food” additives in the modern world. It’s linked to obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, attention deficit disorders, and more. Yet Americans consume 130 pounds of sugar each year. In fact, sugar is EVERYWHERE. It hides in your ketchup, lurks in your yogurt, invades your granola bar, and even swims in your soup. It goes by many names. So what about sugar substitutes? Sure, they might contain few to no calories, but they continue to feed our desire for sugar and have been linked to obesity.
Let’s work together to end our devotion to the sugar god. I’ll make a bold prediction. Get rid of sugar for 30 days, and I’ll bet you’ll see all kinds of benefits – a smaller waistline, a better night’s sleep, higher levels of energy and happiness, clearer thinking, and even radiant skin. Can you live with that?

You need desire, knowledge, and food to successfully meet this challenge. Just click on the ‘Before You Begin‘ button and you’ll be led to the details.
Actually, there’s a lot of good food left to eat once you take out sugar. But yes, you’ll be busy reading ingredient lists and planning your meals, rather than stopping at the corner market and grabbing whatever strikes your fancy. Read the Food Guide to help you select healthier options from the grocery store and restaurants.

I’m not going to lie to you! This Challenge can be tough, depending on your sugar habits. But we’ll work on this Challenge as a team, one day at a time.
