Well we are into Day 2 of sugar free February. We have got 29 people enrolled. We have raised $754 so far for the Haiti Earthquake appeal and I am hoping we can crack the $1000 mark with sponsors or late enrolments.
I am really excited you have all decided to kick the “white death” for a month to see how it feels.
What I want you to achieve out of this month is seeing how much sugar you would normally consume and seeing how you feel when you don’t have it.
It is not a crack pot diet that I want you to all starve yourself. Take a look at the meal plan, it is only a suggestion, but it is a healthy eating plan, so please don’t come to me telling me you just ate roast beef all day because you didn’t know what else to eat!
Avoid sweetening your food with any other type of sweeteners natural or artificial, that will hardly help with your tastebuds.
Don’t find ways to justify having sugar, it is just a major cop-out. For example, having a beer when you finish an adventure race…..
After this month, I am not expecting everyone to give up sugar for ever, but hopefully your tastebuds will have changed a little, you will see that you feel better and weight less, so it might encourage you to cut right back on it and only have it at special moments.
Good luck everyone, like I said, I am super excited, so stay focussed, eat healthy and be happy.
