Starting Sunday, June 03 @ 11:59 PM, until Sunday, June 10 11:59 PM  your challenge is to ...

Reduce your SUGAR intake by 25% and walk a total of 12 miles.

Sugar has a very high caloric content and virtually no nutritional value. Besides causing weight gain, it also encourages inflammation, infection, compromises the immune system and raise insulin levels. Furthermore, insulin encourages the storage of fat, elevates triglyceride levels and promotes cardiovascular disease, asthma, mood swings, diabetes, hypertension, and arthiritis.

Eating less sugar is one of the best actions you can take to improve your current and future health.

Keep in mind that we're not asking you to stop consuming sugar altogether. What we're challenging you to do is only cut down 25% of the unnecessary sugars you're taking in. Here's how you can do it:

Cut down on processed and packaged foods. Salad dressings, spagehtti sauces, soups, and even pizza crusts contain sugar.  

Don't put sugar in your morning "Chai" or Coffee  

Try natural sugars instead Fruits, maple syrup, brown sugar

Substitute Walking for Sugar Cravings
