I know you… and you’re already sweet enough. Adding extra sugar to your daily diet is unnecessary and definitely not good for you!
This week we’re going to be getting rid of ADDED SUGARS in our diet!
There’s a HUGE difference between the natural sugars found in foods, and the added sugars that we put in our drinks and foods.
The scary thing is, these days sugar can sneak up on you with at least 60 different names, making them difficult to spot when scanning your labels.
In fact, here’s a great list with about 56 of them for you:
It’s recommended that we (as adults) limit our daily added sugar intake to around 25 grams, or 6 teaspoons a day.
Your challenge this week is to avoid ANY added sugars to your diet! (this includes food and drinks)
Fruit? It’s absolutely fine… it brings in a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients along with fiber.
But coffee or tea with sugar? SORRY!!!
If you absolutely, positively MUST add in a little sweetness, I’d rather you go with these alternatives, other than sugar:
Raw honey (1 tsp)
Be sure this week to check all of your nutrition label… even on items you’d never imagine (like bread, crackers, and other processed foods) because sugar is added to pretty much everything.
After only one week without added sugar, your body and brain will be thanking you!
Are you and your sweet tooth up for the challenge? Let me know in a comment below! And keep me posted on how you’re doing and any successes and struggles.
And, just so you know, I’m putting together a brand new program starting next Monday, August 5th. This is specifically for busy Super Dads ages 30-55, who want to lose fat, gain lean muscle mass, and have increased energy in 60 days. It’s a remote program, so you can join from anywhere in the world.
I’m looking for 5 men to test it out at a HUGE DISCOUNT, help me work out the kinks, and get amazing results that I can use as a case study. If that’s you, comment “TELL ME MORE” below and I’ll message you with the details.
