No sugar challenge

Cereal, flavoured milks, yoghurts, soft drinks, canned or boxed soups, frozen meals, stir-in sauces, ketchup, salad cream,  marinades, sugars, candy, cakes, cookies, pies, chutneys and crisps. Have any of these in your kitchen? If so, this post may interest you.
 
Sadly, most of these things are still labeled as “natural,” which means they may seem low in calories but contain an inordinate amount of sugar. Many people consume more sugar than they realize. The AHA recommends no more than 24 grams per day (about 6 teaspoons) for most women and no more than 36 grams per day (about 9 teaspoons) for most men.

 I know, this is so crazy!
 
If you eat or drink too much sugar, it can lead to health problems like:
What you need is to get your sugar intake down. Reducing sugar in your diet will help you drop pounds and improve your health.

What is the 5-day No Sugar Challenge?

  • 5 days of choosing to be mindful about what you eat
  • Mindfully avoiding added sugar/artificial sweeteners in anything you eat
  • Focusing on fueling your body with nutritious, delicious foods
  • Learning what’s in your food so you can make informed choices

What this challenge is NOT:

  • a detox (your organs do that every day so you’re good on that front!)
  • a guarantee to lose 50 lbs and inches off your body
  • an expectation that you will never eat sugar again
 
The purpose of this challenge is to get you to realize what’s in your food and help you to reduce your daily sugar intake, beat sugar cravings, and find out how you feel with less sugar in your life?
 
If you find yourself feeling more energized and better, you may think about a longer diet change in the future. Why not make it 14 days sugar-free… or a month sugar-free?
 
In this free challenge, I’ll help you to get your sugar intake under control. This is a good way to get started, especially for those who have never targeted sugar in their diets before. This challenge is also about giving you the tools to continue to reach healthier living goals even from your busy schedule.

      1. WOW! That´s impressive… and very interesting! You´re an unicorn in this sugary world :) Would you mind to share some of your tips?

      2. Nothing out of the ordinary, really. I’ve never had that much of a sweet tooth anyway, and I was conscious of the bad effects of salt and sugar through reading various books and articles on the subject. It was part of the concerns that then made me turn vegetarian. So, only willpower!

      3. I mean it. You know how hard it is for some people to give up sodas, chocolate or Big Macs? Sometimes I run out of ideas to help them cope with their habits :)

      4. I was lucky in that I never really had a sweet tooth, so the sugar part was easy. Then becoming vegetarian for ethical reasons led me to looking carefully at everything I ate.

      5. I had a severe allergy when I was a kid. It went away in adolescence, and then I was able to eat candy. Man, I couldn´t give up the pleasure of sweets since then, haha. I don´t eat a lot of them but I really enjoy dessert every single time :)
        As for the meat, I think my grandmother would go crazy if I became a vegetarian. But I have quite a few vegetarian friends who have discovered delicious dishes for me.

Your turn. What do you think about this?
