7 Day No Sugar Challenge

7 Day No Sugar Challenge

In this week's challenge you must follow 7 Day No Sugar Challenge . Give your body a break from sugar. Hit reset and get back on track with healthy eating habits with this simple 7 Day No Sugar Challenge. Slashing your sugar intake can help stabilize energy levels, curb over-active appetites (which is especially helpful when cutting calories to lose weight) and prevent chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even certain cancers. Our bodies are well-equipped to naturally "detox" (thanks to the gut, liver and kidneys, which work together to filter out impurities). If you're an otherwise healthy person, you don't need to "cleanse" or "detox" but if you've been eating too much sugar or refined or processed foods lately, take a break from those foods in particular.
