The Sugar Detox Challenge: week 2

sugar detox challengeThe last couple of years now, we’ve done a sugar detox challenge after the holidays. This year I’ve made a lot of changes for you! Instead of weekly posts or emails, I’ve bundled it all up into a convenient, 24-page, FREE ebook. This way you can download it (for free) and keep it for future reference.

I used to be quite attached to sugar as I’m sure some of you are, but I had no idea how to reduce my consumption and then replace refined sugars with natural ones.

Whether you’re just starting on your journey to ‘real’ and natural foods, or you’ve been on this road for some time and just need a bit of encouragement, this ebook is for you!

As our Standard American Diet dictates, most of us are addicted to refined sugars. Not only do we dump them into our coffee, and inhale cookies, it’s hidden in almost every processed food we buy. And the problem is, the more we eat it, the more our body craves it.

Along with the 8 weekly challenges you’ll also find:

  • My Story with Sugar
  • What’s Wrong with Sugar
  • Know Your Good Sugars
  • Dealing with Cravings
  • Links to recipes using natural sweeteners

    My family’s favorite ketchup is the Muir Glen brand, if that helps at all. :)


  2. Well, I don’t feel so bad now. I thought we were supposed to stop eating the HFCS last week, not just get rid of it. I did great in my own home, but I caved at my girlfriend’s house, where the soda is always well-stocked. Let’s see if I can stay on the wagon this week!

    I was surprised at how many condiments have HFCS. I thought I was pretty good at buying healthy food, but there was still a surprising number of items to purge. What an eye opener!

  4. I wasn’t super surprised by the things that had HFCS — and we didn’t have that much in our fridge or pantry. Most of them are things that I have been buying for my husband since he is kind of a “label guy” and simply can’t go without, ummm…let’s say Miracle Whip for example! LOL

    There were a few items that I will need to figure out different alternatives for, but I think I know what to get to start the shift. Now on to not eating it…a whole ‘nother challenge! :)

  5. just fyi, heniz makes an organic version that tastes the same! I think everything except the last ingredient is organic and so that is what we’ve gone with at this point. I tried other brands but they didn’t give that same taste that we love.
