How long is the challenge?
Why are we recommend you do this?
Our bodies need sugar to function and perform at an optimal level, but many of us consume as much as three times the amount of sugar recommended by doctors and nutritionists. Too much sugar is
taxing on our organs and immune systems, is to blame for many diseases, and has been linked with the growth of cancer. Not to mention that it can cause mood swings, weight gain, and the proverbial
muffin top. Unfortunately, most processed and pre-packaged foods, drinks, and condiments contain additional sugar, chemicals, and preservatives that our bodies have difficulty processing. The purpose
of this challenge is to identify how much added sugar we consume on a normal basis and curtail (or, even better, eliminate!) our addiction to it so that our bodies can function better. During the
challenge we encourage you to eliminate sugars that are not naturally found in foods. We’ll be joining you to offer resources and encouragement to help you along the way. Give it a shot and see how
you feel at the end of 21 days. We are confident that your body will thank you!
Foods with sugar that are ok during the challenge?
We know there are some foods that we love and the thought of giving them up for 21 days seems crazy. While we encourage you to join us in eliminating as much sugar as possible, we understand that
everyone’s goals and lifestyles are different. Take a look at your diet and see what changes are realistic for you. Every food that you eliminate from your diet will help to decrease your sugar
intake and that’s what this challenge is all about.
