Sugar Challenge in Community

How’s your Sugar Challenge coming from last week?

Have you been trying to do it on your own?  If so, try attempting the sugar challenge with 2-3 friends?  

Here are some suggestions for the remaining 7 days of the challenge, or begin the 14 day sugar challenge again with some friends:

  • When you and your friends do a potluck, ask the group not to bring any sugary drink, even though I know it is one of the easiest and cheapest options for potlucks, especially with so many buy 2, get 3 free soda deals at grocery stores.
  • When you or your friends go out to eat at a restaurant, don’t order any extra drinks.  Get water.  Not only will this be lighter on your wallet, but it also means fewer calories and you are putting  less toxic, destructive things in your bodies.  I know the option of “free refills” is alluring, but try it for 14 days and see how you feel.
  • Identify some artificially sweet treats you and your friends often consume together, and come up with a naturally sweet alternative you can try for at least 14 days.

What are some other ideas you and your community of friends have in doing the sugar challenge together?
