Just Say NO to Sugar Challenge
Check out these Headlines:
“SUGAR, NOT FAT, EXPOSED AS DEADLY VILLAIN IN OBESITY EPIDEMIC”
“4 WAYS SUGAR MAKES YOU FAT"
“HOW SUGAR HIGHJACKS YOUR BRAIN AND MAKES YOU ADDICTED"
“5 CLUES YOU ARE A SUGAR ADDICT”
Some of these headlines might sound a bit extreme to you, but I believe if we drastically reduced the amount of added sugar in our diets we would see the health of our country drastically improve. Sugar is literally killing us. I care about you, and I want to see you healthy, energized and living life to the fullest so I challenge you to:
Just Say “NO” to Sugar
Your challenge this week is to limit your added sugar to under 24 grams (4 grams = 1 tsp) a day for at least 4 days this week. I know for many of you this will be tough BUT I also believe that "Nothing is impossible with God" (Luke 1:37)
I want to warn you to be on guard. Of course you expect that your cakes, cookies and ice cream will have sugar, but sugar hides and attacks our health from places we don’t expect
KETCHUP, SALAD DRESSINGS, CEREAL, YOGURTS, SNACK BARS, BAKED BEANS, MARINARA SAUCE - JUST TO NAME A FEW
Here's the good news - You do NOT need to include the natural occurring sugar from fresh fruit, vegetables or dairy. Only added sugar needs to be included in your 24 gram goal.
I will check back on 5/14 to see if you did it. If you did you will be entered into the drawing for a FREE DVD!
