With summer fast approaching, everybody starts to panic about getting their winter bodies out. Most of us had grand intentions over the past few months of getting in great shape and some of us have. Unfortunately though many of us have slipped up far too aften and the results we should have achieved didn’t come to fruition.
Add to this, the party season approaching in December and we have a recipe for 1 piece costumes at the beach and ankle length skirts for the girls. Guys, that 6 pack you dreamed of sporting at the beach this year looks more like a keg than a 6 pack.
But, there is hope. Make November your best month to date!
Join the No sugar challenge!
Here’s the rules:
All rules apply for the entire month of November.
When you mess up, which I am sure you will, at least once. You have to write down what you did on the blog for everyone to see. This alone will help to keep you on track. There is nothing like being accountable to keep you on track, let alone being accountable to everyone in the challenge!
No refined sugar at all.
No sugar in tea or coffee.
No artificial sweeteners either!
No cakes, chocolates, lollies, soft drinks etc
No bottled fruit juice
No dried fruit
Only 2 serves of fruit per day
No sweetened yogurt
No white potato
Only mulitgrain bread if you must have bread
Only basmati rice if you must have rice
Pasta no more than twice a week
If you follow this, you are sure to trim away the bodyfat. I don’t like to make outrageous comments, but I am positive if you follow these rules, you will get leaner!
It really doesn’t take that long to change your tastebuds and reduce the amount of sugar in your diet. Try it for 30 days and see how you feel. Other than being thinner and healthier, I bet you won’t crave it as much either!
If you are keen to join the challenge, enter your name in the comments and any other info you might like to add and then consider yourself part of the challenge.
I hope by the 31st October we have a large list of names to join the challenge.
