Sign up at desk or by leaving your name in the comment box below.
This event is open to all members. Parents can also sign up, but will not receive any prizes at the end.
Rules: No Sugar of any kind, including artificial sweeteners. The only sweet items allowed are Fresh Fruit and 1-2 Tablespoons of dried fruit/day.
You are allowed to bake with dried fruit, applesauce and banana.
YOU MUST CHECK ALL LABELS before consuming any processed foods. Most likely they will contain sugar.
The easiest way to guarantee that you are not cheating is to eat whole, real, natural food for 30 days.
If you avoid anything in a packaged form you will most likely be safe. Packaged baked goods are most likely to contain corn syrup, or hidden sugars.
Parents will have to make sure children don’t eat sugar. Children will have to go by the Honor Code. If they eat anything sweet besides fruit or a baked good that is sweet from applesauce, dried fruit or bananas, they should not count that day.
This is not an easy Challenge, but if you make it through it, you will be that much closer to conquering your ADDICTION to SUGAR.
We will be publishing articles, recipes and stories to motivate you to succeed, on our website.
Sugar to avoid: White sugar, brown sugar, cane sugar, evaporated cane juice, corn syrup, honey, agave, maple syrup, stevia, sweet n low, equal, splenda
Basically if it tastes sweet and isn’t fruit or dried fruit with no added sugar, you can’t eat it on this Challenge.
PRIZES will be awarded to those who PERSEVERE! Don’t give up just because you have sugar on some days. Let’s see how many days you can go without sugar this month!
