Are you guys ready to kick off 2015 with a healthy, strong body? Join me in a 10-day no-added-sugar challenge to really boost your energy and heal your body!
I’m starting the challenge on Monday, January 5th, and I’m excited to see how this improves how I feel! I’d love for all of us to do it together.
I’ll be sharing recipes, and checking in with you on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I would love to see how you’re doing too!
Why I’m doing it
Sugar steals your energy, and creates disease. It makes us tired, and makes us fat. It even gives us bad skin, and bad hair. To top it off, sugar is super addictive, so we want to eat more and more. It’s the root of many health problems in our country.
If you haven’t seen the movie “Fed Up” – I highly recommend it. It’s a great movie, and really educates you on how sugar works in your body, and why we end up eating so much of it, without even knowing it.
Here’s a trailer:
I am doing this because I want to be aware of what I’m eating, and I want to live a long, healthy life. I want to feel good. I love sweets, and I know I ate too much of it over the holidays. So, this will help me to flush it out of my body, and get me into a healthy routine. I’ll learn so much about myself along the way, I’m sure!
I’m giving away a copy of this DVD at the end of the challenge! Keep reading for details.
Why you should do it with me
If you can relate to anything I’ve written above, you should join me! We’ll do it together. I’ll share recipes, and my thoughts. Check into Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram every day and we can let each other know how it’s going.

How the challenge works
So, you are interested? Here is how it works.
For 10 days
- EAT lots of nature-made whole foods: Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, meats, fish, eggs, etc. This is anything that isn’t man-made (doesn’t come in a man-made package.)
- AVOID packaged foods that include added sweeteners (see this list of names that mean “sugar”)
- AVOID adding your own sweeteners to foods, such as sugar, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, etc.
- BE OPEN MINDED and give it your best shot.
That’s it! I’ll be posting recipes and tips along the way. If you want to get a jump start, here is a list of no-added-sugar recipes that are delicious, and easy to make!
It’s best to do this with a friend – so let everyone know you’re doing this challenge!
