I can’t believe a year has gone by since the I’m Sweet Enough 7-Day No Sugar Added Challenge. That means it’s time to do it again!
This Challenge is FREE as well as sugar-free and I only offer it once a year. So if you were thinking of joining in the fun last year but couldn’t make it, now is your chance! Registration closes Thursday May 5th and you can sign up right here right now!
There are many, many benefits to reducing added sugar in our diets (click here to read my blog post from last year for more on this). But sugar is everywhere, so it is very easy to slide down a sugary, slippery slope and have it more frequently than is good for us. Especially after fall and winter holiday feasting, chocolate on Valentine’s Day and spring holidays like Passover, Easter and Mother’s Day.
So I time the I’m Sweet Enough 7-Day No Sugar Added Challenge to come after these holidays but, perhaps more importantly, before the hot summer weather when we start peeling off our extra layers. 😉
The I’m Sweet Enough 7-Day No Sugar Added Challenge is a lot of fun. We go on an expedition to climb back up that sugary, slippery slope that we’ve just fallen down (and learn a little about summiting Everest on the way). And it’s free to join in, so what have you got to lose – besides maybe a little weight?
If you read last week’s blog post, Sliding Down a Sugary, Slippery Slope, you’ll know that this is exactly what I have just done. Perhaps you have too. And you will also know why it is so important for your health to climb right back up. To entice you to join me, I’ve created the I’m Sweet Enough 7-Day No Sugar Added Challenge.
I’m mounting my own expedition to do so by cutting out all added sugar for several weeks. But I’m looking for some company for the first week, which will be the most challenging.
Are you sliding down a sugary, slippery slope? You know the one I mean. The one that begins innocently enough in the fall with a slice (or two) of Thanksgiving pecan or pumpkin pie and then a wee bit of Hallowe’en candy a few weeks later. You gain momentum with heaping helpings of holiday treats followed by boxes of Valentine’s chocolate. Before you know it, you’re gathering and gobbling the Easter bunny’s chocolate eggs (not to mention, if you love them as much as I do, hot cross buns). Suddenly, you find yourself awash in sugar. You have more of a sweet tooth than you used to and sugary treats have become a daily ritual, not just a holiday indulgence.
Does this sound familiar? If so, you’ve just slid down a sugary, slippery slope. I know I have. Read on for more about how easy it is to do this and why you really, really want to climb back up.
And I hope you’ll join me for my I’m Sweet Enough 7-day No Sugar Added Challenge (more on this at the end of this post).
